worst. recipe. ever.

There might be a more disgusting recipe out there, but this one is just a bad idea; from concept through execution.

Dr. Pepper, aspic, and green olives. A bad idea. Very Bad.

From the Gallery of Regrettable Foods.

Warning: not for the easily nauseated.

How does something like this happen?

And what are those things surrounding the aspic? Ick.

That is supremely disgusting.

And I adore Dr. Pepper. But really!

Came here from a link from Jayleigh's blog, and wow... That is beyond nasty. As I stated on her site:

To think that somebody actually thought it up, made it, and ATE IT... Let alone having a photo shoot and recipe published.

I have a 1958 edition of 'The American Woman's Cook Book'. It features the most amazingly time-consuming and revolting-sounding dishes, (frequently featuring Large Helpings Of Lard), but the beautiful hand-tinted photos make everything look like it's worth at least one attempt.

There's a Tuna/Noodle/Cream/Pimento/Aspic Entree that is so stunning its eerie beauty that I almost want to try making it.

Where else can you read that 'Artichokes with Hollandaise Sauce Are Works Of Art' and almost be convinced of that fact by the photos.

Where else can you learn how to plan, cook and design the table settings for an entire Wedding Buffet?

Where else can you learn how to plan a guest list with careful consideration to avoid 'third parties who add a discordant note to proceedings'.

Plus pre-training your children to be perfect dinner guests ahead of time to discrease the chance of misbehaviour.

And the fact that although it is entirely possible to 'entertain without a maid' there are 'distinct limits to what should be attempted for pleasant and dignified results'.

And men still wonder why the women's liberation movement started...

I love this recipe ! Reminds me of you making soap at home, Mom.
And it's fun to see photos of your house there and see
Dad in that comfy chair we sat in when we visited,
attempting to use the slow internet :)

I can't wait to hear how the soap turned out in terms
of using it. Does it smell different since it is made with
animal fat? Any other differences from vegetable-based soap?

Love you!
