Thanks to a bizarre conversation I had recently with someone that made me feel trapped in a 1953 house-wife’s body, I started thinking about a 1950s themed dinner party.
Just for fun, I posted a question on Facebook Saturday asking what foods people would serve.
The responses were so fun. I loved them all.
So I am definitely toying with the idea of throwing a 1950s themed dinner party. When said event happens, I’ll take a ton of photos and share recipes.
For now, I’ll share some of the menu ideas from facebook:
Pot roast surrounded by potatoes & carrots
Jello salad, Jello Mold, Jello with fruit & cottage cheese (most definitely need Jello)
Iceberg lettuce with Thousand Island dressing
Green bean casserole
Canned Vienna Sausages in BBQ Sauce
Deviled eggs, deviled eggs and more deviled eggs
Pimento cheese stuffed celery
Chicken pot pie
Rack of lamb
Peach cobbler and ice cream
Cocktail meatballs with sauce
Pigs in a blanket
Meat loaf with mushroom gravy
Cherry pie ala mode
Lima beans and square carrots
Chicken a la king
Double Chubby Checker (cheeseburger), chili fries and cherry cokes
