Well, it is snowing like crazy right now, but I must say we are doing better than most here in Michigan.  At least there isn’t a blizzard beating a path to our door like my poor parents in Wisconsin!  In any case, it is a good day to stay in and bake cookies, or eat them if you are like me and have a whole kitchen full of cookies! This week for the menu I...

Happy Wednesday, All!  So, for this Christmas I decided I was going to give Tom a break from the Mid-Century Menu for dinner for a month. I decided it would be a nice change to do something GOOD for a while.  Besides, with Thanksgiving past and done my mind has switched gears over to Christmas cookies.  And since I was digging through all my vintage cookbooks looking...

Wow, check out the piece of meat on the cover of this cookbook. Appetizing, huh?  It is no surprise that this is the cookbook that I chose the Mid-Century Menu out of this week.  It is 250 Ways to Prepare Meat by the Culinary Arts Institute, published in 1942. This is a great cookbook, because every single way you could think of to make any kind of mid-century meat...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu!  I hope everyone is getting excited about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  I know I am.  My parents are coming up to spend Thanksgiving with us and then spend a few days hanging out with us and watching movies and stuff.  It is going to be really fun.  But one of the highlights is that they are going to be eating...

Welcome to another week of the Mid-Century Menu!  Honestly, I am surprised this feature has gone one as long as it has.  I thought for sure that it would become too disgusting for us to continue, but Tom and I have persevered through all the stinky, nasty dishes and even found a few good ones.  One of these days I need to make a Best and Worst list of the Mid-Century...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu!  This week Tom and I picked a great recipe out of Favorite Recipes of Michigan Meats, although I am not sure if any meats, especially Michigan meats, actually do have favorite recipes or not.  Hey, I don’t make them up here, I just cook ’em and write about ’em.  Har har. Anyway, this book was published...

Rice, rice, rice, rice! This week on the Mid-Century Menu, we dive into the field of rice recipes and rice preparation. The book on the left is 75 Glamorous Rice Dishes Economical, Too published by the Louisiana State Rice Milling Company, Inc., makers of Water-Maid and Mahatma Rice.  I am not sure of the date of publication of this little booklet, but from the...

You know, even though the Mid-Century Menu is sometimes freaky, sometimes creepy, and sometimes downright disgusting, there are a lot of redeeming qualities to it as well.  Hmmm…this description kinda reminds me of an ex-boyfriend.  And like that ex-boyfriend, the Mid-Century Menu can be fun, exciting, adventurous and enjoyable in a filthy way that you are...

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu.  I am happy that all the regular readers have decided to come back for more, and for those of you who are just joining us this week, I can already answer the question that will be floating around in your head. Yes, I am crazy! Aaaaanyway, this week’s Menu comes from Money Saving Main Dishes,...
