Boomers: MiLlEnIaLs CaN't CoOk
Cookbook from the 60s:
@Juju I'm screaming IRL at this recipe. This can't possibly be good, can it??
@Joshi I stole it from Twitter. Here's the whole thread and it's WILD
@Joshi [looks at white salad] SALAD IS HEALTHY!11!!!!!
@Juju oh my god
@Juju this thread is going to kill me just from screaming at the recipes
@Joshi I can't even be mad because I once looked up the definition of "salad" because I came across some non-salady recipes that were called a salad and found out that EVERYTHING CAN BE A SALAD!
@Juju Can't wait to dig into this breaded chicken salad I cooked up earlier
(it's dinosaur chicken nuggets)
@Joshi IT'S SALAD!
@Juju Oh I see, if it's warm it's chicken nuggets, if it's cold, it's chicken salad. Okay, this is fine, then.
@Joshi There are warm salads, though, they're only "usually" cold
@Juju I don't think I can deal with warm salads tonight. That's a bridge too far.
@Joshi You just aren't sophisticated enough to appreciate this!
@Juju you're not wrong.
@piggo Did you mean "healthy"? Then I agree. Salad is healthy!
@Juju Pepsi salad, on the other hand...
@Juju I'm sorry, no salad is permitted to "separate" itself. Undo.
@erosdiscordia It's only four ingredients and I'm kind of tempted to try making this. I just have zero of the ingredients here, I'd have to buy them. I want to see if it ACTUALLY separates.
@Juju Legendary move. Think you'd actually take a bite, though?
Can't imagine orange, cheese and soda would be a great taste sensation.
@Juju I felt I was going to die just from reading it!!!
@Juju What fascinates me is the way the Nineteenth Century English fad for putting everything in aspic spreads and mutates and ends up as the “gel salads” that (I’m told) are still around today.
Jello salads are still an infamous part of the culture where I'm from (Minnesota, in the Midwest of the U.S.). My British spouse complains to his friends and family here about having them inflicted on him every Christmas as we spend that with my family. He doesn't eat them of course, but somehow having to share a table with them is an insult to him.
@Juju uh CW: horror or "food crimes" plz k thx.
@Aellope Fair. BUT SALAD IS HEALTHY!
@Juju I'm going to mix chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers together, and call it "dessert salad". It's healthy!!!!
@Aellope I mean... in the Twitter thread was a "white salad" that did have marshmallows and some other disgustig stuff xD SO YOUR JOKE IS NOT AS FUNNY AS YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING!
@Juju No joke, one thing I had to eat as a child was "mashed potatoes with tuna and cheese". A one dish meal.
No one I tell about this believes me.
@Aellope I'd eat that xD That doesn't sound half as disgusting to me as yams with marshmallows, you filthy animals!
@Juju Well the only spice it had was pepper, I should warn you. So if you were expecting like, thyme or something, don't.
@Juju I said on another thread about this that this recipe isn't that weird (aside from the word 'salad' being involved) when you consider that cheesecake exists and cheesecake is awesome.
If I can figure out what "1 small package" is relative to the other measurements I am totally going to make this and see what it turns into.
@Juju 1 large Coca-Cola (10 oz) stood out to me, too. Can you even get a coke that small anymore?
@Juju I just noticed "salad separates into three layers" and I think I'm going to be sick.
