Vintage Cookbook Centerfold of the Week

This li’l lady appears in the 1960 General Foods Kitchens Cookbook, and frankly, she’s scaring the hell out of me!  She looks as if she’s had some sort of lobotomy and is laughing hysterically at her frightening meal of, um…  What’s up with those brains on a plat…. oh, wait.  That’s spaghetti.  I can see the directions say to boil the pasta for at least 2 hours until thoroughly cooked.  And obviously this must be a picture of the famous Spaghetti and Meatpucks recipe… Meatballs are so 50s.

And, as anyone with a lobotomy will tell you – nothing goes better with Spaghetti and Meatpucks than canned Veg-All and vanilla pudding.  

You so know she’s going to lick that hot grease when she’s done maniacally laughing.
