Throwback Thursday

I keep seeing people doing these Throwback Thursday posts on their blogs and Facebook and I decided that I would throw one back out here.  This throwback is from before I was born.  My neighbor brought over a November 1953 copy of Ladies Home Journal. Check out the cover.
Beautiful woman, lots of great red lipstick, I think she could easily be on the cover of a magazine today and be considered in style.  Funny how those things come back around.
There are a lot of interesting articles, ads and recipes too - 
like this lovely *gag* creation!
Did anyone ever eat this creation in their early days?
Please tell me it tasted better than it looks because I think I'm going to go find the bathroom.
I hope this recipe doesn't come back in style!

I am laughing so hard at that casserole. I know we had something similar. If a recipe was in a magazine, it had to be good in my Mom's head. Fried peaches and Spam? My Dad used to sit down to dinner and look at what Mom prepared. "Looks like you got a new magazine in the mail", was often all he would say. My Mom's idea of good spaghetti is noodles, hamburger (from our steer), tomato paste and a little ketchup - bleh!!! Dad bought me a cookbook for my 8th birthday and I did all the cooking a few years later. Every once in a while a new magazine would inspire Mom and still does - my poor Dad. :)

LOL! That is pretty nasty. I was lucky to have a mom who cooked real food, mostly grown on our farm. Jello was reserved for tummy ache time.

Bleah! No, never had that dish. Mom must have not got that issue! I always disliked that fruit cocktail. She made a cake with it and also threw it into jello. Yuck! Great Throwback! The cover girl is beautiful!

I love the throw back Thursday theme!

Mom was a simple cook. So we didn't have that and you were right. I looked at it a "gag."
