1970s Dinner Party Recipe

But surely the saving grace is that after 45 minutes of cooking it would be tasteless and could be harmlessly ditched into the nearest plant pot. Or perhaps it’s the Seasoning that saves it?

I'm more wondering why I have to stand in a cool place for half an hour. I have air conditioning!

Good point.
I am trying to imagine bun-shaped rondelles made from spaghetti that has been cooked for so long that I can’t imagine it could still hold together. And what the hell is a bun-shaped rondelle anyway?

I truly thought I had a comment that might redeem this, but I just realized that it's 10:25 pm and I'm only up because I have to pee.....TMI..I know.

 

MINT on what ever the hell bun shaped things are with sprouts???  

 

Nope.

 

I'm going back to bed and hopefully erase this nightmare from my brain.

Pizza Fish Finger … a good example how everything sounds better in Italian 😜

Fish fingers smashed due to a transport incident (it looked pretty much like the packaging picture before). Taste was actually ok.

Glad to read it's limited! Hopefully to one for the photo.

I have some Dr. Oetker chocolate pudding purchased on the recommendation of a friend.  It is about fifteen years old.  Not sure how it would be on pizza.

Some idiot (not from here obviously) just told me he doesn't like squid, but calamari is ok!

Quite certainly “Laxative Mayonnaise” with the pectin, 2 teaspoons of mustard, not to mention the 1 quart of mineral oil! Just the thought of it has me twitchy about TP on hand. 🤣

This was also shared last year by @Kim Shook over here in the vintage cooking booklets and pamphlets topic. 
Best for about 5 min?  Hard to imagine dispatching that volume in 5 min…and if it’s for a crowd….where are they all going to go 🤣

"scrambled eggs, diced ham, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, with hollandaise style sauce on a croissant crust"

 

All of those things sound good together, though also like  a gut bomb, but I don't want to know what happens to the scrambled eggs and hollandaise after baking 😳
