|My mother did make pumpkin pie with canned pumpkin and Pet milk. She also made|
a stellar apple pie, which I believe my sister is going to make for us on Thursday!
|McCormick has been packaging and advertising spices since 1889.|
Our family dinners long ago used most of these spices. Also now!
Most of us really don't much like pumpkin pie these days.
|Another random ad from the internet.|
|Ocean Spray canned cranberry sauce is an old-time|
classic. Some time ago, I started making several cranberry
recipes from scratch instead of just slicing it up.
|This ad could appear right now and no one would think anything of it.|
Unless you are actually supposed to recognize the name Margaret Rudkin (google doesn't).
|From our local food corporation, Chelsea Milling Company, comes the|
corn muffin mix used in the Thanksgiving favorite corn casserole.
Jiffy Mixes aren't advertised much, so I didn't actually find an ad for this.
|This ad really looks unappetizing -- and pathetic. Not so vintage, either.|
I feel sorry for anyone who eats like this! We always make our own gravy.
|I don't remember this classic green bean casserole as a family tradition,|
but it sure does get a lot of attention in food histories and recipe collections.
Campbell's introduced it in 1955. It seems to have swept the Nation.
|This ad really makes me sad, reminding me of how normal smoking once was.|
My father smoked Camels for most of his life: until it was too late.
