I can't get that meatloaf choo-choo (or should I say 'chew-chew'?) out of my head. Did people actually do that with food? Did kids eat that stuff? GROSS! Loved laughing at the idea of it all but don't believe people back then ever did things like that, if they did, they were sick.
Dear Loved the Laugh, Hates the Look One
First off, let's get one thing straight.
|Oh please, the only thing Helen gets straight is her bourbon. Which, like any proper lady, she puts in a pretty, pretty tea cup. Though in honor of Pink Saturday, maybe I should fill this cup with Pink Champagne!|
If you don't believe that 'people back then' ever made a meatloaf train then where do you think that photo came from? You think Helen concocted it herself simply for a photo op? Are you accusing Helen of doing something so unnatural, so aggravating, so distasteful as.... COOKING?
|Just a few examples, these gifts from my cousin Patje - it's good to have family, huh?|
|Hot N Zippy - that's the before. The after you eat it? Not so Hot and definitely NOT Zippy.|
|Um... yum? You know that expression - when they made you they broke the mold? IF ONLY THAT HAD BEEN THE CASE!!|
|Who needs a wedding cake when you can have a football shaped molded 'salad'? He's asking - "Do you love Jello as much as I do?" "I do! I do!"|
|Surprisingly NOT from the twisted mind that brought up Meatloaf Train! Tater boats!|
|Raggedy Ann? I'd rather eat the cotton stuffing!|
|It was the early 60s and even the cookies were expected to always be happy - though clearly Mommy couldn't help expressing her own pent up emotions in frosting now and then.|
|It's a cute idea but maybe better done before Mom has too many of these:|
|By 'Improved' we mean big enough to swim in!|
Do you think people actually MADE this stuff? Did kids actually EAT it? Use your noddle, Loved One, people made their kids MAKE this stuff, then nobody ate it. Why do you think a whole generation was raised on guilt trips about wasting food while other kids in other countries were starving? You know we all offered to send our plate to those kids and see if THEY liked it.
|"La-de-dah, now to just put this in a box marked "kids in China" and get it out of here!"|
