Hey, what's Mom making for dinner in there?
I spent a weekend recently at the crash pad cleaning out some cupboards, which unearthed several old cookbooks of Mom's that Dad found and mailed, including some from soft bound 1960's vintage cookware company cookbooks.
Barkley - what do you think about Party Meatloaf?
In reviewing some of the recipes I realized that it's not the lack of exercise, super sized sodas and lots of processed junk food that's making this generation fat.
Mmmm - look what's in it.
No, the reason the "Mad Men" generation were all svelte was recipes such as this.
From Mom's 1960's Nordic Ware Cookbook, which I first ran by Midwest Chick on the phone, to which she replied "there is NOT enough bacon in the world for that".
3 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 cups soft bread crumbs
1 egg beaten
6 T. minced onion
salt and pepper
4 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
1 and 1/2 Tablespoons Horse-Radish
1 1/4 Tablespoon catsup.
Combine ingredients and pack firmly into a bundt pan and bake at 350 F. for 2 hours (isn't that how you make presto logs?)
Top with cinnamon apple rings, broiled peaches and onion rings. (yes, you heard that right)
What do you think?
Well gee, Barkley, if that doesn't spell party I don't know what does. Maybe not, but do go over and say a quick congratulations to Kevin Baker at the Smallest Minority who just celebrated his tenth blogiversary.
