In case you need a little inspiration, I did a quick, online search and found some winsome recipes from the 50’s. Ack!
You don’t really even need to read the recipes to know they’re good; the title says it all. Here are a few of my faves:
Baked Corn Chex ‘N’ Cheese Custard
He-Man’s Tuna Noodle Casserole (made with Ritz!)
Lemonade Fried Chicken (uses frozen lemonade concentrate as a brine!)
Pepsi-Cola Cake With Broiled Peanut Butter Frosting (uh…)
Fresca Cake With Maraschino Frosting
I actually might have to make this one:
Red Hot “Salad” (I decided to put quotes around “salad”)
6 oz Cherry Jell-O (2 Pkgs)
4 oz Red Hots Candy
3 c Boiling Water
20 oz Pineapple, crushed and undrained
2 c Applesauce
Dissolve Jell-O and red hots (also known as Cinnamon Imperials) in boiling water. When cooled to room temperature, add pineapple and applesauce. Pour into oiled 8-cup mold. Chill before serving.
Those of you attending my real-time party… don’t worry. I’ll be making real martinis.
