This is also part of my “Blogs That Inspire” series.

Look at those photos.

LOOOOK at them! #Goddammit1970s is ALL over this blog. This must be what people ate when they had the “munchies,” because I cannot see anyone eating this slop sober. Look at that glazed “ham!” It’s glazed with gelatin(e) and probably has lines drawn on with Magic Marker.

(By the way, this is another influence on the upcoming Six Degrees of Stoogeration site!)

People wonder why I love the 70s (even though I don’t remember much!)

THIS is why.

The overly bright colors, the fact that there’s a green tablecloth, harvest gold plates (with brown detailing, of course!) and wooden salt-and-pepper shakers. If the 70s could be eaten, this is what the main course would look like.
