I figured that all the scary food had been left behind in the ’60’s and ’70’s. I was wrong. Boy, was I ever wrong. The problem is that I misunderestimated Martha Stewart. She had a deal where you could order a free trial of her magazines. And I’ll read anything for free. I just finished my perusal of her May 2010 issue.
You should know that I am, by nature, a meat eater. I love meat. Red meat, white meat, the other white meat. I love it all. I even go fishing quite often – I enjoy fishing. But even I don’t think I could do this.
What kind of person leaves the head on their food when they cook it?! What kind of person serves meat with the eyeballs still intact?! The fish is obviously completely horrified by the pork loin. But, alas, the fish is tied up and can’t escape the nightmare of the pork loin. Who would force their food to be so uncomfortable?! Who does that?
And, if that picture wasn’t bad enough, Martha also gave another helpful picture back with the recipe. Yes, she tied the poor fish up with rope. Perhaps with those scary eyes staring back at her, she thought the fish would try to make an escape?
So, you see, retro is in. Sadly for us, that means Retro Food is back in style. That’s just great.
Hopefully the Retro Food craze will mean we now have more Jello recipes. I really do love me some Jello.
