156. Greek Lamb Stew in Baked Eggplant Boat

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 02/09/2022 - 12:12am in

It’s National Gyro Day! Sadly, I do not have a gyro to share with you, but I do have Greek Lamb. In a boat. That’s not too far off, right? Whatever. Just roll with me. So it would be remiss of me not to mention that I made this dinner in March of 2021. Yes,Continue reading 156. Greek Lamb Stew in Baked Eggplant Boat →

141. Chicken Teriyaki

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 31/08/2022 - 12:08am in

I made this one back in May and I didn’t take notes. All I can remember is that we hosted my friend Kevin and it was a weeknight. This was a good choice for a weeknight because it was only supposed to take a little over an hour to prepare and I marinated the chickenContinue reading 141. Chicken Teriyaki →

Smirnoff Southpaw (1975)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 19/08/2022 - 2:05am in

It’s Smirnoff Southpaw Season! If America has a beverage to call its own, it must be cola. In fact, we took good old cola so for granted that in our search for interesting things to mix with Smirnoff, we overlooked it until now.So it was with a sense of correcting this oversight that we mixedContinue reading Smirnoff Southpaw (1975) →

It’s the last Wiener Wednesday of 2022! Today we have another reader-submitted recipe. Poppy Crocker from Grannie Pantries was kind enough to send over this gem from  Loyta Wooding’s Smart Shopper’s Cookbook (1972). Here’s the obvious question–what, exactly, is the surprise here?  These are obviously not drumsticks. Do you think you’d eat ground pork wrappedContinue reading Wiener Wednesday: Surprise Drumsticks (1972) →

National Tequila Day: The Ancient Tequila Arts of Montezuma (1974)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 25/07/2022 - 6:47am in

Happy National Tequila Day! In 1974, Montezuma Tequila released a series of magazine advertisements based around the Aztec calendar, which they called The Ancient Tequila Arts of Montezuma. This ancient calendar, called the Sun Stone, has an inner ring of twenty symbols, one for each day of the Aztec week. These symbols also suggests whatContinue reading National Tequila Day: The Ancient Tequila Arts of Montezuma (1974) →

Smirnoff Daquiri (1973)

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 20/07/2022 - 12:44am in

It’s National Daiquiri Day! Here’s an advertisement for the Smirnoff Daiquiri, which they call a “modest invention.” We were caught recently with an unexpected hankering for something different. Thumbed through a recipe book and decided on the daiquiri. The recipe called for a liquor we never use. So we improvised, and discovered the Smirnoff Daiquiri.Continue reading Smirnoff Daquiri (1973) →

Smirnoff Sunstroke (1974)

In the words of Mrs. Kasha Davis: THERE’S ALWAYS TIME FOR A COCKTAIL! So here we have another cocktail courtesy of whoever did the advertising for Smirnoff in the 1970s. Here’s the original text for The Sunstroke: The Sunstroke (Sometimes less is more) For a long time we clung to the notion that longer daysContinue reading Smirnoff Sunstroke (1974) →

For today’s Wiener Wednesday, we have a reader-submitted recipe! Paris B. sent me a selection of Frankfurter Recipes from the 1979 edition of the Woman’s Day Encyclopedia of Cookery.  I own a set of the 1966 edition–I’m wondering how much they changed in 9 years. The chapter on the humble frank begins as such: FRANKFURTER–FrankfurtersContinue reading Wiener Wednesday: Frankfurter and Sauerkraut Goulash (1979) →

Happy National Macaroni Day! To celebrate, here’s a DiS1972 humdinger of a dinner which first appeared on the blog in March of 2011…. I am a firm believer that the only thing that should come in loaf-form is bread. Even standard ol’ meatloaf is pushing it. It is a line that should never be crossed.Continue reading Happy National Macaroni Day!!! →
