Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Time for the Mid-Century Menu, where normally I make something horrible from one of my vintage cookbooks and force my husband to eat it.  However, this week I decided to post a cute recipe just sent to me by Sablemable, which I just made for my open house.  Egg “penguins”. Here is a picture of the penguins from a Better...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu, where I find the strangest mid-century recipe I can and I cook it up and serve it to my husband, who will eat pretty much anything.  And most of the time it is even edible. This week’s recipe comes from Warm Weather Meals for 2 or 4 or 6 published by the Pet Milk Company in 1938. 1938 isn’t truly mid-century,...

Hello everyone!  Welcome to this week’s mid-century menu.  This week I tried a recipe from one of my new cookbooks that I recently bought at the Midland Antiques Festival.  I was lucky enough to find a whole pile of these little cookbooks for pretty cheap at one booth, and you can be sure that I snapped up everything I could! The victim this week (besides...

 It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! It’s time for this week’s Mid-Century Menu, where I crack open one of my many, many mid-century cookbooks and look for the most unappetizing meal I can find. I cook it and serve it for dinner to my husband, who always chokes down the worst food possible with a smile. And why do I torture the poor man? Because...

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  You know what this means. Hubs and I have eaten a meal I chose out of a mid-century cookbook, not for it’s promise of deliciousness, but for it’s weird and sometimes disgusting ingredients. We ate it, and we lived to tell about it. Our meal this week came from this happy little book, 101 Ideas for a Quick and Easy Lunch with...

Hello everyone!  Welcome to this week’s edition of the Mid-Century Menu, where I cook terrible mid-century recipes and force Hubs…blah blah blah.  You know, I need to come up with a new intro, because frankly, Hubs is starting to enjoy this.  He gets a fiendish gleam in his eye on Tuesday when he asks what is for supper. Ha ha. I said “frankly”...

Welcome to this week’s edition of Mid-Century Menu, where I willingly make mid-century recipes that I know will be terrible or inedible, and then Hubs and I eat them for dinner. Most of the time we can even eat all of them. This week we have a special treat. Last week’s frosted sandwich loaf may have been the most labor-intensive Mid-Century menu so...

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to the Mid-Century Menu, a small torture that I foist on my husband every week in which I find the weirdest mid-century recipe I can from my collection of vintage cookbooks, make it, and then force him to eat it. Poor Hubs. This week’s recipe is something that I have seen around a lot in my cookbooks, and I have always wanted to try:...

Welcome to this week’s Mid-Century Menu!  Normally, this is where I cook a terrifiying recipe from the 1950s or 1960s and serve it to my poor husband for dinner, but if you have been reading my blog this week you know that I am visiting my parents in Wisconsin.  So, my post for this week is going to be the Washington Cream Pie that I made to go with the Frankfurter...
