it's time to cook with Betty, again.
Did you miss the first installment of the terrible 60's culinary creations?
'Cause we made Petal's 'N Pickles, and it was awesome.
But a little bit more about this book--
It's so full of clean, old-fashioned fun. I really do believe next time's session should be an aspic. ("An 'as'-what?")
maybe it'll be this tangy tomato aspic. Ew, wait. I'm adding lemon gelatin to this tomato aspic?
HOLD THE PHONE.
Forget the aspic. Look to the left. Farther, farther. . .
Do you see what I see? Does that say "LEMON BLUE-CHEESE ICE"??? Is this some sort of sick joke??
Tole ya. Good, old-fashioned fun.
Take the culinary age of party sandwiches, for instance. Aaahh, those were fun.
Wait a minute-- what the he#@? Are you. . . are you frosting my party sandwich?
And, ya know. . .
I like fish okay. I love the beach. I love a nautical look. But, does your food taste gritty? My food tastes gritty. Does your food taste gritty?
But I digress.
So, Suzanne suggested that "Worms Writhing In Sand" be the next culinary creation.
I couldn't agree more.
So? Is this a delicious dessert for birds?
Imagine my surpreese to find that this recipe was a simple cake, with meringue frosting.
Cake. Meringue. Cake and meringue? Huh. Hmm. . .I don't know, man.
it's nuts on top that give it that real "sand-y" look.
You know what? I thought this was gonna be sick. Maybe like, what you would imagine pouring plain corn syrup over a cake would taste like.
In short, I thought it would be putrid.
To my everlasting awe, it smelled heavenly. It tasted pretty decent, too.
Frankly, I'm a little disappointed.
