Meat Power

Thanksgiving time usually means turkey, and while that is indeed meat, please don't expect any goofy lookin' gobbler's in this post, --no sir! Today we have beef, and processed lunch meat, and fried chicken, ham, hamburgers, hot dogs, and also what I'm assuming must be meat flavored ice cream because why on Earth else is it featured in a mid-century Swift's Premium Meat booklet anyway? So okay, who's ready for one of the most uninspired AEET holiday posts ever? I mean golly, this recipe booklet is full of fun stuff, but unfortunately it's printed so terribly, not to mention the actual piss poor condition of the booklet itself (from years of being folded in half in one of my drawers), and well... *sigh! I turned my scanner off and just took some bad camera photos of the images instead, just to make sure this post is extra lo-fi, and ultra crumb-bummy too. Yes, while the power of meat may still compel you, we'll just have to see you all on Friday for a much higher quality level of blogging, because (frankly put) --this blogger is exhausted. And stuffed. And it isn't even Thanksgiving yet! Everyone please have a great holiday...

What were portions like back then? The roast at the beginning looks like it's 15 lbs, the steak next to it is 1 1/2 inches thick, and the ham at the end looks like you could use it to jack up a busted wheel on a jumbo jet!

Also, don't play the stand up bass if you have greasy meat fingers.

The second pic made me chuckle. Maybe it's the facial expressions of the father and son carving team. Meat Power!
Happy Thanksgiving.

Better than portions for the price these days, that's for sure!

And always remember when using a knife, if you're cutting towards yourself make sure to have another person standing in between you and the thing being sliced. Safety first!

Thanks(giving) for the comments --a bit more quality for Friday Frights is up next.

All kinds of child labor! Scouts, red caps, bellhops, the works!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
