Thanks, but No Thanks Thursday

Once again it's time for TBNT Thursday. The day that I feature one lucky dish from my collection of 1972-74 Retro WW recipes that is so frightening--so utterly horrid--that even I would not attempt to eat it.

I will re-iterate: I don't care if Jean Nidetch herself prepared these dishes and served them to me personally on a diamond-studded, gold-plated Pyrex platter. I would have to look Jean square in the eyes and say, "Thanks, but No Thanks!"

This week's feature is the Molded Asparagus Salad. Don't even get me started on this salad. I get angry just looking at it.



Can't we just set our salad vegetables free? Why must they forever be entombed in a state of gelatine-induced suspended animation?

Tonight, I shall revolt against the mold, and eat my asparagus in its unfettered state. Thanks. I feel better already.

So, you are caving in already Mimi! I don't blame you one bit. You must be sick of Retro food, as if the aspic wasn't enough! Some nice grilled asparagus would be great, with a light brushing of olive oil. Forget the molds!

ok now this one looks weirdly good to me. In a sort of chilled gazpacho kind of way. Can you tell I'm STARVING right now?!
