Never in a million years...

Would I eat the canape that looks like the pair of eyes in this little cooking booklet from 1971 that I picked up at one of the local resale shops. I think that is the main reason I bought this for a quarter. I've looked through the booklet, and I *think* it is a sardine canape, with chopped olives around, and a green stuffed olive on top. This is definitely an unfortunate food. However, it did have some tasty looking recipes in the back for desserts, but the canapes I'll pass on. Especially the suggestion under "ham spreads" - 1 cup ground ham, vinegar or pickle juice to moisten, 4 teaspoons peanut butter, salt, pepper, celery salt. No wonder it appears that everyone had martinis and other libations during the 50s, 60s and early 70s in the party pictures. They had to get drunk to stomach the nibbles.

    I have few rules when it comes to "eats"...

    1- NO BUGS!
    2- NO TOFU!
    3- When in doubt...make it WELL DONE.
    4- I NEVER eat anything that is staring at me!!!

    Aside from that, I'm good to go.

    Have a great weekend.
