In honor of reaching 13,000 Facebook followers (yay!) and 1,000 followers on the Mid-Century Menu Facebook Group (also yay!) I wanted to do something fun and different this week. So, I decided to quiz all of you to see how closely you have been paying attention to my periodic rants and weird recipes.

Behold! The thirteen-question Mid-Century Cooking Quiz! Feel free to write your answers in the comments below. I will post all the answers on the blog on Friday.

Ok, ready? Go!
