    Yeah, real gourmet food, Crustwood style. Then again, why should I expect better from people who think heating up Stouffer’s is actually cooking. Wow, let’s have some of their famous Jello Jigglers for afters!

    Better not. Burl may slip in some vodka, and they’ll all wind up on the floor.

    Check for tire tracks in Burl’s skivvies? What? To see if there aren’t any?
    Here’s something for the cookbook. The home made wine in North Africa by oil company expats. Start with Welch’s grape juice….

    Oh!
    That may explain the recipe I used when I cooked my first “foreign” (therefore exotic) dinner, at 19….


    Maybe it was written by a U-Stor-It employee living in China!


    It was sweet and sour hot dogs with canned pineapple!

    With, I think, an onion, and a little brown sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce, and the juice from the pineapple, all thickened with cornstarch.
    Mmmm


    From the ubiquitous red checkered Better Homes and Gardens cookbook I’d just gotten for Christmas…

    My very first cookbook, and I never knew it was printed in Crustwood!


    My (then) boyfriend and I were both impressed that I’d learned to cook actual Chinese food.


    I’m kind of embarrassed to remember it…
    you guys won’t tell will you?

    My mother used to make us “Hungarian goulash”. It was mac. and beef with tomato sause and onions. I did enjoy it.

    Mikie…
    I remember a horrible fad for everybody giving me home made “liqueurs” for Christmas….


    Used wine bottles, or if they were flush, cheap colored glass bottles from Cost Plus….
    and who knows what they added to the mix.


    Instant coffee, sugar and cheap vodka for “Kahlua”, canned cherries and cheap brandy for “Cherry Heering”…
    and more…
    The worst I remember off hand was some sort of orange stuff with Tang in it.

    ….

    Nothing to say unauthentic isn’t tasty.

    How abut the Cambells’ soup recipe book? My sister has hers from the early 70"s. Sweet and sour chicken/pork is what I like to make. I don’t think either of the Crustwood girls will cook unless it came out of a box or frozen. Rice crispy strudel??i don’t think so.

    Makes me want to hurl, Verl. Y’all can do much better than that.

    “Frito Pie” for authentic Mexican.
    .
    @ SS & Marg: I do beleive that fad might have help produce the party mainstay “Jello Shots”.
    .
    BTW: Jello makes a “U-Flavor it Jello”. Quite tasty with a decent flavoured vodka like Root Beer…or so I’ve heard.
