We sprung forward today, but #SundaySupper is turning back the clocks to retro foods from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. It is fun to look at some the older food commercials from back in those eras. You see how far we come in not only in food, but what about those styles and hairstyles of people. I mean they actually hand drew the cartoons for these ads too, no CGI or computers! One thing I have noticed in retro food ads, did you ever notice that the kids in them looked well, drunk? Here a great video of vintage retro food ads, let’s go down memory lane and look at some of the retro food ads from yesteryear, shall we?
Retro foods can be fun. So I think we need a little bit of retro food fun in this post. Let see I was talking about ads, let’s branch out to TV now. There is plenty of things to choose from I could put up, but I think we need a laugh. So let’s go back in time and have a little laugh, retro style:
A 1975 Crock Pot Recipe brought to you from Seduction in the Kitchen.
- 2 cups crabmeat flaked and picked
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 strips lemons rind of
- 1 teaspoon ⁄2 ground mace
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons dry sherry
- 1 cup ⁄2 crushed saltine crackers
- Combine all ingredients except sherry and crushed crackers in crockpot and stir well.
- Cover and cook on Low setting for 3 to 5 hours.
- Just before serving, stir in sherry and crumbs to thicken.
- Ladle into a bowl and ENJOY!
It is a very good soup, and truthfully the recipe has held up nicely, considering it is 40 years old from Crock Pot. Since this was the retro food week, I had to do this recipe for #SundaySupper. I wanted to pull out all the stops, even down to putting on the vintage filters on the photo and a retro font. We have to have fun with our food!
