I find everything in this post be extremely offensive, as well as derogatory to taste buds!!!

if you’re not careful you’re going to wind up with that whole bowl of pork and beans down the front of your pants!

What a nice shortcut for stuffed peppers! Can you still buy canned hash, I wonder?
January 12, 2013 at 4:52 am
Oh yes. It’s in the canned meat section at the grocery store with the Vienna Sausages and the Underwood Deviled Ham near the tuna. It can be pretty greasy though – so you might want to fry it a little before you put it in the peppers. I’ve never tried it but it doesn’t sound half bad!

I guess you know there’s a “content warning” page now. Someone browsing through must have flagged the content — I giggle when I imagine the frozen expression of horror on his/her face (and I wonder what post they hit that froze them).The warning page will keep out the riff-raff.BTW, Are you getting these ads straight from copies of magazines? Just wondering.To “Unknown” –Canned Hash (including Mary Kitchen) is still on sale in regular supermarkets in NYC; and those oddly-shaped Corned Beef tins are really big in Asian and Hispanic food stores here. Also, the Asian supermarkets have different brands of cans that look just like Spam cans, and the English says “Luncheon Meat,” but it’s a kind of bland, low-salt mushy spam — my dog liked it (which is not a recommendation).

these ads were all taken from old Woman’s Day and Better Homes and Gardens magazines that were in my grandparents house. i cut them out with the intention of wallpapering my kitchen with them but never wound up doing that so i scanned them in hopes that i will someday print them out and wallpaper my kitchen with them. that’s the plan anyway!

Wallpapering with old newspaper works (if shellac is put on top, as it is at Cafe Le Figaro in Greenwich Village), but old color ads bleed — worse if there’s also a color ad on the back. Printing them out (on a laser printer) is probably a better idea, but you’d have to test one out to see if it’s affected by the paste.How about using them to cover an old table top with hi-gloss shellac on top to finish it off? You’d probably have to make the ads a little smaller, and make them face different directions so that everyone has something to read, etc.

Y’know, I don’t even know if any of those old, historic Greenwich Village cafes are still there. NYU owns 90+% of the area now, and they’re racing with The New School to buy up any other available West Village property — and everyone is remodeling/rebuilding. Most landmarks from the Beatnik era disappeared by the 1990s, and the park with the famous miniature arch has been remodeled completely to accommodate tourism. And the formerly-dangerous, low-rent East Village is now sky-high expensive and looks like lower Midtown.I hope some of these things were still here when you were in NY.
