Weird Valentine Dinner from 1971

What you see here is a Valentine dinner from the 1971 booklet 401 Party and Holiday Ideas from Alcoa. The recipes are about what you'd expect from a marketing company of the era. What is presented between the silverware is Jellied Ham Salad, which contains lemon-flavored gelatin, vinegar, mayonnaise, pimiento, horseradish, ham, and other abominations. You can see the recipe for the salad and the instructions for making your own heart-shaped cake pan and cake stand out of aluminum foil at Granny Pantries. The blog, which has the tagline "A place to appreciate the horrors of vintage cookbooks," also gives us a Valentine recipe for Two-in-One Valentine Salad, where you serve chicken salad in little hearts made of gelatin and tomato juice. Happy Valentines day! -via Everlasting Blort
