More Hors D'oeuvres

Here are a few that look pretty easy and not too outdated, but then how can food go out of style. Well, yes I know there are a few that I will never eat again, like...Velveeta, or Spam or even Moon pies, which have come back. Remember these recipes all come from circa 1950 or 60's.

It has been a long time since I could leave any comment on your blog. It didn't let me. Only happened with your blog. I could read it but not place any comments. I mention it just in case it happened to someone else.
Glad to be able to say hello again!

Very interesting inspirations by our past! For me, when a recipe is a good one, it is evergreen and never outdated. These you give us sounds really good and i'd love to try them! Smiles for you :)) Chiara
