We're going on another trip today, courtesy of American Home magazine. This time we're heading back 59 years to June, 1956. The cover features a picture of Ed Sullivan grilling on his patio.
Yes, women were expected to wear tight waists, full skirts and petticoats. No, I don't know why.
Up a ladder, yet.
Here's the story about the Ed Sullivan family. Lots of Early American going on there.
No? How about a sub sandwich made with Spam, then? Other menu ideas include Baked Chicken Parisien served with barbecued french bread and canlis salad. No idea what that is. Wait, I hadn't read the small print. Canlis was the name of the man who came up with the recipe. Every one sounds worse than the one before. A tom-elet? Succotash salad, anyone? Tomato sherbet cocktail? Maybe I'd better stop here.
I need to turn on the oven (not for any of the dishes from American Home!) and get ready for Mr. B's return. It won't be wearing a tiny-waisted dress, full skirt and pearls, though. He's stuck looking at me in shorts, tee shirt and Sketchers. I hope you enjoyed this trip back to the fabulous fifties.
