Today's Show & Tell Sunday theme is a favorite flea market find. Birds of a Feather is hosting this week. I love stumbling across vintage cookbooks. I'll even cook up recipes from them sometimes. Here is a recent flea market find that had me simulataneously laughing out loud and feeling a bit of nausea. And I thought it was important for me to share these feelings with ya'll. The Joys of Jell-O from the 1950s...
At first glance, I wasn't overly impressed. I thought "Jello. How boring." What could possibly have changed about Jell-O in the last 50 years or so?
Apparently, I'd forgotten about all the curious Jell-O salads that little old ladies always seem to bring to the backyard BBQ or church potluck. Friends, that is celery in the Jell-O above.
Ring Around the Tuna... How did I miss out on the fact that lime Jell-O and tuna fish taste so well together? And please don't forget the sliced olives. The dish would be ruined if you left those out.
The next time I serve shrimp, I'm definitely gonna be sure to serve it atop a lime green Jell-O ring. I think the neighbors will be impressed.
Have a close look at these Vegetable Jell-O Molds. On second thought, maybe not. Cauliflower in Jell-O. Now that's just pushing it too far.
I know what I want for my birthday. I want my kids to make me this Birthday Surprise. Do you suppose they can fit 38 candles in it somewhere?
Actually, on second thought, I am the Apron Queen. And I think a Crown Jewel Dessert would be more fitting. Don't ya'll think?
Thanks for stopping by for your daily dose of vintage goodness & a bit of silliness. I hope this ridiculous cookbook made you giggle out loud. Or at least say Eew Yuck! out loud. I apologize if your stomach is feeling a bit queasy now. So, what's the grossest thing you've ever seen in Jell-O?
