I love finding these older cookbooks while out thrifting.
We are only two, except for the last Sunday of the month, and then the whole family is here and we have a great time. But right now the freezer is full, and the two of us cannot eat fast enough to accommodate the blogging schedule I would like to maintain. So I had a fun thought, and really it is a bit of a rip off of other Wednesday features. Some blogger have Wordless Wednesday, just like get her done, Annie of Real Life Living, or another is What was it? Wednesday with the lovely Pam of sidewalk shoes. With the the inspiration from those bloggers, I decided to create my own, Wednesday wonder, if you will.
Introducing: What we ARE NOT eating, Wednesday.
We have all seen these recipes in books and magazine, and even a dish described by a friend. And when we are done listening or reading, the first thought through our minds is, "I won't be eating that!". The only down side to this little food-less post is no photo of the offending dish, but that might not be a bad thing!
Molded Baked Bean Salad
Sunset Salad Book
I told you!"A jellied, baked bean salad rates as a novelty in the category of molded salads. In this one, crisp onion, pickle and celery provide a contrast to the soft beans."
1 package (3 oz) lemon flavored gelatin
1 c boiling water
1/2 c catsup
3 T tarragon vinegar
2 t horseradish
1/4 t Tobasco
2 c canned baked beans
2 T chopped green onion
2 T dill pickle
1/2 c sliced celery
Dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water. Add catsup, vinegar, horseradish and Tobasco. Chill until syrupy, mix in beans, onions, pickle and celery. Pour into a 9X5 loaf pan. Chill until set. Turn out of mold onto a platter or tray layered with lettuce leaves, and serve with a sharp flavored French Dressing and capers.
