Ham Jello!

Ham Jello!
Originally uploaded by kirida.

I have a box of Good Housekeeping magazines from the 70s and 80s. I have secretly kept in my trunk so my husband won’t get mad that I’m bringing more crap into the house since technically, it’s not in the house! Technical victory is mine!

Every morning, I walk to the bus stop and stop by my car to pick up another vintage copy. My dream of having my own library mobile finally realized!

I’m slowly scanning and uploading all the laughable ads, articles and awesomeness like this gem: a picture of a Christmas dinner complete with HAM JELLO! Not even the tassles can dress up that mess. Yech.

    *** (that’s me freaking out), I flippin’ love old recipe books from the 60’s. I’ve got this old TimeLife one with all these fancy dishes that I believe does contain a few aspic type dishes in there as well. They make that shxt almost look good.

  5. Oy! Disgusting! I have a 1970 copy of The Joy of Cooking and it is laden with aspic recipes. Apparently all things gelled were “fancy”. Bleehhhh!

  6. That’s my fiance’s nickname for me. What?

    I think the fact that it’s made of a thousand tiny pieces is what ups my gag factor.

    And yet I eat Spam all the time. Go figure.

  9. Oh, that makes me want to hurl.

  10. ewwww!!!

  11. Wow, I think I just found an alternative to bulemia. Who knew losing weight could be so effortless?
