Potatoes — The Way Men Love Them

Potatoes, the way men love them according to 1971 GM recipe card.

Although, I cannot argue with a recipe containing potatoes, onion, butter and oil. I’ll just pretend it says bacon (or chicken) fat. Also bonus points for hash browns, not home fries.

Betty Crocker Cupcake Stand

The popularity of the cupcake isn’t too hard to understand. Like little sweet jewels they stand out amongst duller competition. And you can eat them, that’s always good.
