Unusual Recipes

Sure, we've all had the jell-o with celery and carrots in it, and I think Velveeta is a perfectly acceptable ingredient. But every once in awhile while I am perusing cookbooks, especially community cookbooks, I come across a recipe that blows my mind:

CRACKER SALAD

Crumble 1/2 pound crackers.

Srir in mayonnaise- just enough to moisten

Add a touch of sugar,
1 chopped onion,
2 chopped bell peppers
1/2 chopped celery

Any recipes to add?

    Why, they're much bigger than one would think.

    The fisherman would like you to know that he has an impressive pair of buoys, too.

    Mrs. Roadhouse received a set of the WW cards from her brother for Christmas. They garnered much hilarity as we passed them around at various family gatherings during Christmas/New Year's week.

    My mom would make mock chicken in the 1950's. I remember them as a drumstick shaped mass with a wooden stick "handle". I think I liked them but that was long ago!

    OMG Elise! I think my mom has those recipe cards. Those clown things look all too familiar. She has the entire set in a yellow plastic storage box. I remember looking through them when I was a little kid to pick out my birthday cake.I'll have to revisit them for a good laugh next time I am over there. I know she still has them.

    Informal Poll: Which of those cupcake clowns looked the most evil?

    I'm going with the one in back, obviously the leader of that sinister bunch. Must've been the 70's.

    I always imagine those evil cupcakes chasing the screaming kids around the room, moving in stop-motion-animation, twisting forward side to side gumby-style.

    If those were served at a modern day children's party, I forsee someone's precious little Mackenzie or Blake not realizing what's holding the stupid little hat and gumball to the cupcake and biting down hard, impaling the roof of their mouth, followed by their parents slapping the hostess with a massive lawsuit dripping with pain and suffering, mental anguish and huge medical bills.
