Brace yourselves for Dairy

300 Tasty, Healthful Dairy Dishes
Culinary Arts Institute
1940

Submitter: Hold onto your stomachs for this one. Just when you think you have found everyone of these items for the series, another mystery stained volume appears like a zombie crawling out of a hefty bag. I hope this won’t spoil anyone’s lunch!

Holly: Instant recognition after the egg cookbook! Dairy is so 1940.

Mary: Thank God this is in black and white. I think if we saw the Green Pea Ring recipe all decked out in a pea color, it could cause some kind of trauma.

Casseroles and Stew with 70s Style

Stews and Casseroles
Shirley
1978

I know it is summer so a hearty stew is probably not your first choice for cooking. As a Midwesterner you know that casseroles (or hotdish to my Minnesota friends) are year round fare. Generally speaking, casseroles include some kind of cheap meat or tuna, some kind of noodle/macaroni or tater tots, and some kind of cream of something soup. You will be happy to know that this book does fulfill some of the the basic Midwestern casserole requirements. The shocker for me was the lamb curry  and the tuna curry recipe. Pretty darn wild for a my central Illinois roots. I am not sure that curry can save some of these recipes.
