More Banana Boldness

The New Banana
Fruit Dispatch Company
1931

Of course the official fruit of ALB is bananas, thanks to the post “Be Bold With Bananas.” (If you haven’t taken a look at this post you need to RIGHT NOW) Who knew that the banana had so much potential? In this publication, we have a “new” banana. (I am not sure what happened to the old banana other than turn brown.)

Today we have a lovely pro banana book from the early 1930s. Feast your eyes on the bacon wrapped banana and browse some recipes for banana sandwiches. Pretty darn bold, if you ask me.

You’re Welcome,

Foiled in the Kitchen

carefree cooking with aluminum foil

Carefree Cooking with Aluminum Foil
Reynolds Metal Company
1975

Yet another helpful cookbook for those with aluminum foil who haven’t got the slightest idea what to do with it. (I suppose you can make these lovely crafts.) Again, we have some delicious-looking molded food. In the picture below is a stunning recipe for frozen jellied turkey-vegetable salad. It’s the pimento garnish that really sells this recipe.

The other recipes are unremarkable and hardly different or unique because of the foil. I did wonder why a giant hamburger was needed. How about a meat loaf or individual burgers? I guess I will never know.

Time to head to the grocery store so you can indulge with these tasty treats. You’re welcome.

Casserole Cuisine

Casseroles
Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers
Favorite Recipes Press
1982

As a true Midwesterner, I embrace casserole cuisine. However, not all casseroles are created equal and this book proves it. Note the “surprise” casserole. (I think my mother had a similar recipe.) The other recipe worth noting is called “Ned’s Goop.” Looking at the ingredients, the word “goop” is fitting. The casserole staples always include a can of cream of mushroom soup, cheese of some kind and some kind of crunch factor, such as potato chips or bread crumbs. I won’t even comment on the calorie count or sodium consumed.

Enjoy!
