Retro Food

It’s that time of year when Ladyloafer thinks about dieting. Actually Ladyloafer thinks about dieting most of the time, but then reaches for a biscuit.

So how about some mid-century (that’ll be last century) classics to get us through the winter? Be warned, there’s a lot of gelatine involved.

We’ll start with the basics; lime jelly with a filling of cottage cheese, mayonnaise and grated onion. Serve with seafood salad. mmmm…..


Then we’ll move on to Tuna and Jelly pie. Yes jelly pie, but not in a good dessert way. Oh no, this pie has a cheese crust with a tomato-lemon gelatine centre and a tuna salad top.


 In fact I reckon savoury jelly is the key to a good diet. It’ll put you off eating for days.


Yep jelly for salads. Hell, why not jelly for everything, hmm?


Even baked beans. I have one question?




I think I need a bit of stodge now. Maybe some potato salad? Salad you can slice, yeah?

Although I do like the pretty veg ‘flowers’. Very creative. Possibly to distract you from the wierdness of your ‘salad loaf’?


Maybe some fish now? A prawn tree! That’s what’s missing from my dinner table!


Or a hotdog, pineapple, stew thing. I have no idea. Nor do I really want to tbh.


Now for a snack, beverage, light meal. Or all three in one glass.


It really is too much. I don’t think I can handle this diet. I need cake, doughnuts maybe? But not any old doughnuts. Vitamin doughnuts. This means they’re good for you, right? Excellent.


Happy dieting Loafers!
