"Looking for a fancy dish you can make today -- serve tomorrow," not if I'm the cook! I get that this is easy and makes an interesting presentation (i.e. "fancy" in the copy's words), however, I don't think my party guests or my family would be interested in eating this.
When I was little, my grandma used to mix fruit into the strawberry jello, which was a special treat and super yummy. I just can't understand how this concept spanned into putting this such as cheese and olives into lime jello, as the example above suggests. Maybe it's a generational thing.....
I tried to find what magazine I scanned this from, but I couldn't find it. I am thinking it come from one of my 50s McCalls or Ladies Home Journal. If I come across it, I'll edit it in. And, just in case you are feeling inclined to try such a concoction, the recipe for "Tangy Cheese Aspic" is provided in the ad. The only part that the scanner cut off is the suggested ways to serve this "fancy" dish. What did you find?
Next month's Nasty Jello Party will be held on March 17th. So if you couldn't find something for this month, you have a whole month to find something for March. :)
