Spaghetti Subs – A Retro Recipe Test

Okay, okay. You got me. This post is NOT about gelatin.  I have to admit that the gelatin contest has been kicking my butt recently. My fridge is full of gelatin, my cabinets are full of boxes of the stuff and I STILL have a bunch of recipes to test. But fear not. Tom and I still have the will of the warrior and the eye of the tiger. And the stomach of…something with an iron stomach.

We will get through this. And, to keep you amused while we cook and taste, here is the insanity that is Spaghetti Subs! Just in case you were wondering if you were seeing things, never fear. There is canned spaghetti mixed with corn on that sandwich.

You aren’t insane. It’s okay to laugh. Really. Just let it all out. We have seen some crazy crap on this blog, but this has to be one of the weirdest. When we get something like this, you really, really start to wonder about mid-century test kitchens. I mean, really.

If you aren’t of a certain age (ahem) you may never have seen anything like this blog.  But I grew up around this stuff, and ran into it all the time at church suppers, family reunions and potluck dinners, and even in respectable (more or less, in mid-century Muncie) restaurants.

Most of it looks ghastly, but a lot of it actually tasted pretty good.  I do have to wonder if the nice lady running this blog is paying royalties to James Lileks, though.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
