Blast From the Past: Betty Crocker's 1970 "Foods Men Like" (A Kathi Post)

I'll bet you never knew that there were foods that men like. This little booklet from Betty Crocker from 1970 has 28 recipes that men will like when you want to "say 'Thank you,' 'Please' or 'I'm sorry.'"

There are some standard recipes, such as Chile con Carne, Blueberry Cobbler, Hungarian Goulash. 

I had never heard of a Jelly Omelet until I saw this booklet. Basically, you make an omelet in which you drop 3 T. of jelly into the eggs. That sounds unappetizing to me, and I am sure that it's not something my man would like.

I can imagine that Jim would totally like the Chocolate Cake, especially with an ice cold glass of milk, though.

It's kinda fun to look at what a food company in 1970 thought would be foods that men like, even if I don't agree 100%. Well, at least the booklet was free.
