Awful Food: Banana Sea Foam

Sea foam? Really? Nah, it’s just mashed bananas and chilled gelatin in a mold. Garnished with strawberries, because strawberries always remind you of the sea. Awfully delicious!

Bon appétit! Or, non appétit?

Flying Saucer Camera

The Flying Saucer Camera by Videon will be used by the Air Force to clear up saucer questions. One lens takes a regular picture; the other separates light into colors so scientists can judge the source and make-up of saucers.

UFOs Überhead!

Vintage Exposure Value Cards

At one time, Kodak included with its Pony II camera produced from 1957 to 1962, small exposure value cards. Kodak also included these cards with some popular consumer films like Kodacolor, Ektachrome, Kodachrome, Plus-X, Pan-X and Tri-X for a period of time in the 1950s and 1960s.

The cards were intended as a handy aid for the photographer and were meant to be placed in a small holder on the back of the camera (the film door).

Awful Food: Chili Corn On English Muffins

Combine chili, corn, onion and green pepper in a saucepan over low heat. Meanwhile, cut a thin slice off the top of each English muffin and scoop out centers to form cups. Arrange the muffin cups on a broiler rack and toast under broiler until lightly browned. Watch carefully to avoid burning! To serve, fill toasted muffin cups with hot chili-corn mixture and garnish with sliced ripe olives. It’s awfully delicious!

Awful Food: Lamb Aspic

Chop leg of lamb into pieces; cook and brown the lamb well all around. Cover and cook over high heat until boiling; reduce heat and simmer until meat is tender.  Remove all bones and then completely ruin the lamb by adding softened gelatin. Don’t forget to remove the layer of solidified fat from the top before serving.

Awful Food: Santa’s Whiskers

Special cookie treats!

Finely chop red or green candied cherries and the pecans that go into Santa’s Whiskers so the cookies will be easier to slice. Before chilling, roll the logs of dough in flaked coconut. If desired, serve the holiday cookies with mugs of creamy eggnog sprinkled with nutmeg.

Awfully delicious!
