A Lame Attempt
This was as good as I could do. I searched the frozen food aisle for something that resembled Swanson's first TV dinner, served in the little aluminum tray in 1953. Hungry-Man brand was the only thing that came close, so I picked a Salisbury steak meal and a fried chicken meal. I am so lucky that I have a husband who humors me the way Ricky humored Lucy. Don was a good sport with my idea of an entertaining, nostalgic dinner.
We waited patiently for our feast to cook in the REAL oven and then set our steaming meals down on makeshift TV trays to watch an episode of I Love Lucy. We had a few chuckles as we swallowed bites of whippy potatoes and rubbery meats. It helped to have the distraction of the TV screen!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
