Retro Tuesday: Thanks but no thanks!
A glorious Retro Tueday to you!
One of my fave blogs is 1972 the Retro WW Experiment. Mimi is hilarious and always posts weird recipes. Some of the weirder ones contain weiners as ingredients! I feel that hotdogs are such a WW NONO! But I was not following WW in 1972 and I'm sure that they were a nice change of pace from that god awful liver...
So when I saw these pics I thought of Mimi and her Thanks but no thanks segment....
Budget Beaters! From Campbell's....Spaghetti with tomato soup and hot dogs! And a Tuna Burger! I know the economy is slowly recovering but are any of you making this?
I personnaly feel a baked potatoe is something perfect with just a bit of butter and sour cream (ok,ok chives) but with tuna...let's just say it it gives me the willies!
Which would you choose? The Spam country dinner? The Spam rice ring? the Spam 6-in-1 Supper Bake?
Well NONE for me! This is the original mystery meat! What was it before? leftovers to be....By the way the winner is...SPAM Country Dinner!
And last but not least...I actually started feeling faint when I saw this one....
Baked bean topped with sliced 'cheese' green bell pepper rings and ketchup! Who dreamed up that nightmarish recipe? The good folks at Kraft of course!
Please don't bother inviting me if your cooking that for dinner tonite!
