Recipes for Disaster

In today's Costco-tray-of-veggies-and-wraps kind of world, we forget that our parents and grandparents actually prepared food, especially when they entertained guests (while wearing dresses with pearls or suits and ties). Harken back to the fabulous 50s and sexy 60s with these recipes, plucked out of cookbooks from thrift store buying sprees. Here's an example quote from one:

"Almost anything you like can be rolled in bacon, oven or pan-broiled, and served on picks."

Yeah, now you're talking!

You'll be horrified and mesmerized by Mock Duck.

I think my mom used to have some of those cookbooks.
