42 Weird Meals from the 50s

I love this article- it's just ... weird.  I am a sucker for historical ironies (thanks to my dad), so vintage cookbooks with instructions for how to keep your husband happy with dinner on the table and other primitive mores are fascinating to me.  The same goes for archaic ingredients that were once in vogue.  Sardine salad?  Jell-O with cream cheese and pears?  Spam and lima beans?  Mmmmm.

I would have been more grossed out if I wasn't so wildly entertained.  And I'd probably be more nauseous if the ingredients weren't so incoherent.
