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...

Welcome to the Mid-Century Menu where every week blah blah blah vintage cookbooks, blah blah blah interesting recipes, blah blah blah serve it to my husband for supper. You get the idea. 🙂 The recipe, or should I say set of recipes, that Tom and I chose this week comes from Good Food On A Budget, published by the good people at Better Homes and Gardens in 1971. ...

Hello!  Welcome to the Mid-Century Menu, the feature on my blog in which I pick an unusual, interesting or strange recipe from my vintage cookbook collection, cook it, and then serve it to my husband for dinner!  Poor Tom, the human guinea pig.  This week’s pick for dinner comes from the cookbookwith the best cover so far, the Carnation Easy-Does-It Cookbook. ...

Welcome, all! It is time for another Mid-Century Menu, the feature on my blog where I find the most unusual, strange, experimental or questionable recipe from my vintage cookbook collection, cook it up and serve it for dinner. Sometimes the results are pretty tasty, but most of the time they are pretty bad. If you missed it, last week was a first in Mid-Century Menu...

More exciting news!  The Mid-Century Menu featuring the None-Such Ham Loaf is in the Accent section of the Midland Daily News today. Hopefully, this won’t be the last Mid-Century Menu that appears in the paper, either.  Depending on the interest level, I might get to contribute some more! Thanks again to Lori and Pam for giving me this fun opportunity to...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu, the special portion of my blog where I choose a hilarious or crazy recipe from my vintage cookbook collection, cook it exactly as the recipe tells me (no matter how horrible), and then serve it up for dinner. My husband has choked down more than his fair share of horrible creations thanks to this part of the blog.  And...
