Thanks, But No Thanks Thursday - It's Back!

Hooray! It's TBNT Thursday again!

This week's disaster on the platter is a simple dish called:

Fish Balls
Weight Watchers 1974 Recipe Cards
"Fish Spectaculars" Category

Let me tell you something. These balls are anything but spectacular.

Here's the skinny: take a flounder and a halibut and toss them into the grinder with a bunch of celery. Add seasoning and mix well. Form balls.

How does one get the Fish Balls to maintain their spectacular ball formation without falling apart? Add some Knox Unflavored Gelatine, of course! Keep adding Knox and water until each of those little balls is completely covered in its own little shiny aspic coating!

Four balls per serving. Spectacular.

Thanks, but no thanks!
