Vintage Cookbook Centerfold of the Week

This gorgeous photograph is courtesy of The Betty Crocker Dinner for Two cookbook, 1964.  I love how dinners in the 60s seem to be made of completely random dishes thrown together to imply some sort of “texture” and “color” composition.  Like, what the hell kind of dinner is this?  

Meatballs, Au Gratin Potatoes, Beets in Orange Sauce, Green Peas & Cheese Salad and Pineapple Marshmallow Creme, that’s what! 

I think we had these Corelle dishes when I was a kid.  Or at least something like them.  These would have gone perfectly in our Harvest Gold and Avocado Green kitchen.
