We were going to make this thing called Chicken Fantasia, but through a convergence of confusion and delay (yes, I have been watching too much Thomas And Friends with the toddler this week), it needs to be put off until later (like, Thursday). So, since I know you can’t live without your retro recipe fix, here’s a collection of interesting ones that you’d never otherwise see on my blog.
Banana Meat Loaf. Buzz actually came across the recipe elsewhere, and wanted to make it, and I turned him down and we made a different crazy banana thing. Good thing, too, because somebody else has already tried it.
Canned Meats with a Sack O’ Barbecue Sauce. This is totally unappealing (canned hot dogs with barbecue sauce dumped on top?), but luckily it’s impossible to make today — it’s not available anymore. Any guesses as to why?
Mayonnaise from Evaporated Milk. When I was little, I thought mayonnaise was dairy-based. I remember being shocked when I found out it’s an emulsion of egg yolk and oil. I was flabbergasted when I found out there are actually a variety of fake mayos made with evaporated or sweetened condensed milk. Taryn has tried one.
So yes, there are things that are so crazy that not even the Retro Recipe Attempts household will try them. We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled insanity in a few days, though.
