A Tropical Shortcut Feast, 1969-Style

Today's menu comes to us from 1969's Shortcut Cooking, and I'm 99.9% certain the "Irene" who wrote her name of the cover of this book was my mother-in-law. I would love to be able to ask her if she ever made Easy Perfection Salad and, if she did, how she felt about sauerkraut in lemon Jell-O and whether or not she topped it with the Horseradish Mayonnaise. I'm pretty sure the answers would be no and no, but who's to say? She was an adventurous cook. Fix yourself a Mai Tai and get ready for a speedy dinner straight from "the tropics!"






Bon appetit!

Here are her Dinner Menus for May. Some of these dishes may sound downright unappealing by today's standards, but it was the Great Depression and there was food on the table. And dessert! So, without further ado:








Bon appetit!
