Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu! After last week’s Jellied Egg debacle, I am happy to report that this week there is not a bit of gelatin to be found in any of the dishes this week. At all. Thank goodness. That being said, it doesn’t mean this week’s menu is any less scary looking. There is just no gelatin in it. This week’s...

Well, we’ve finally done it.  I didn’t think the Mid-Century Menu could sink any lower, but it has.  This is it people, the final 1950’s culinary atrocity. Gelatin. You heard me.  I am breaking into the 1950’s gelatin salad craze, quite possibly one of the scariest ages in culinary history.  When Tom called me from work on Monday, I...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu! For those of you who don’t know, this is my favorite feature on the blog, the one where I get to cook weird things out of vintage cookbooks and feed them to my husband for dinner. Delicious. In any case, this week’s recipe comes from Cookout USA, a cookbook published by Kikkoman, McCormick, The Squirt Company,...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu!  Since we are doing Mid-Century Christmas here at the blog, I decided to do a holiday meal to fit in with the theme and get everyone into the spirit!   Hubs was pretty excited when he found out that I would be making pumpkin pie.  So much so that I don’t think he really listened to what else was going to be...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu, the “fun” feature on the blog in which I get to pick a recipe from my collection of vintage cookbooks, make it, and then feed it to my husband for dinner.  Poor Tom! And this week it really is poor Tom, because I am cooking out of a Spry cookbook.  This particular Spry book was published in 1949, and I think...

Hello everyone!  Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu, where I pick a recipe from my vast array of vintage cookbooks and make it for dinner, forcing my husband to eat it no matter what.  In all fairness, he is excited to eat the sometimes noxious concoctions, but it still makes me feel a little evil. Muwahaha! Anyway, this week’s Menu comes from a really...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu!  I have to confess to a bit of poor planning on my part.  I didn’t put two and two together on this one, and I planned Menu night for the same night that we were suppose to go to a ballgame and eat hot dogs for dinner!  Ah well, when you have a problem, you think up a compromise, right? So, instead of doing an...

Happy Mid-Century Menu, everyone!  Oh, wait.  I guess I mean, happy Wednesday.  Wednesday has pretty much become Mid-Century Menu day around our house. And what is the Mid-Century Menu?  Take one vintage cookbook, add one man who will eat anything and you have the recipe for some good fun.  Every week, I pick an “interesting” recipe from a vintage...

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today is a great day for many reasons.  The first is that Tom’s fever broke sometime last night and he is feeling much better.  I am really glad, because he was pacing around driving me crazy because he couldn’t go to work!  So, after waiting a few hours this morning to make sure it didn’t come back, he is eating a...
