Baked Tomato Scoops!

Here's a yummy serving suggestion from the editors of Better Living, circa 1954: "Hot and splendid scooped tomatoes heaped with chicken and cheese, surrounded by quick corn-on-the-cob, a pot of melted butter, man-sized saltcellar, and tender fluffy butternut squash." Yes, don't give me one of those saltcellars for pantywaists...I want a MAN-SIZED saltcellar. And, please heat my melted butter with a votive candle, if it's not too much trouble.

I love these old food pictures, and I'll be sure to share more from this issue, the theme of which is "Be a Lazy Cook." This is a lazy meal, I suppose, by 50's standards...not necessarily compared to my standards, which involves tossing a package of Top Ramen in some boiling water.

By the way, there's lots of cool old food pictures and ads over at Senses Working Overtime...check 'em out!
