Isn’t it interesting how times change? In the 30′s hats, gloves and clutch purses were popular. In the 40′s we had page boy haircuts and full skirts. The 50′s brought ponytails and beehives. In the 60′s we saw mini skirts and bell bottoms. In the 70′s there were leisure suits and platform shoes. You get my point. Isn’t it weird that food is fadish as well? I mean does anyone eat stewed prunes anymore? Most kids today have never even seen a jar of molasses. Does anyone take the trouble to make petit fours anymore? Chinese, Italian, Mexican food all had it’s time in the limelight with a plethora of cookbooks, but now it is ordinary. Everyone knows how to make spaghetti or enchilladas. Then came Thai food. What is it now? I don’t know. I guess I am not feeling the pulse on that one, but let’s talk about congealed salads. I mean they were big in the 30′s. They appealed to the depression era housewife that wanted to stretch her food dollar. What could be better than morphing leftover tuna into another meal with the help of Jello? We often see a comeback of fashion fads. My son’s hair looks strikingly similar to the Beatles or the boys pictured in the New Joys of Jell-O cookbook published in the 70′s. What about food fads? Why don’t we see a comeback of food fads? We are in a economic crisis right now. So I can’t help thinking that it would be most appropriate for the congealed salad to make it’s appearance in the limelight once again. The economic tide is about to turn. Ladies pull out those recipe books gathering dust in your mother, grandmother and great-grandmother’s cupboards. We can make a difference in these hard times. Obama we can turn things around. ”Yes we can!” We need look no further than Jello. Let’s see what we can do with the congealed salad. Now go have a little Jello Joy!
Wow those olives in that salad picture look gross but cool in a strange sort of way.
