Tonight we're going to party like it's 1965

    For those of you planning holiday parties, here's some suggestions from a "Golden Fluffo" cookbook published sometime in the mid-1960s. My wife got it from her mom, and she pulled it out the other day for its pie crust recipe.

    Anyway, among the many humorous, wow-times-have-changed offerings was the entry for hip moms wishing to lay out a "teen-age buffet."

    So what should be piled on those platters, you ask?

    And don't forget these handy snacks!

    Party on, Wayne. Party on, Garth! And pass the sliced tongue and pickled herring. :)

    It would be interesting to read that sentence to a group of teenagers and hear what they think it means.

    No tongue on show day! Tongue . . . death!

    Other than the tongue and liver sausage, most of that stuff sounds pretty good to me.

    Nothing says banging party like some tuna fish salad and edan cheese!

    Someone pass me some cold salami!

    I bet the illustrations are even better. I remember a sex-ed book from the 1960s in which the cover was a guy and gal sipping from the same shake (separate straws). Paging Dr. Freud.

    My dad still eats liver sausage on crackers or for a quick sandwich. It's tolerable, but I'd rather have the herring or sardines.

    Or a frozen pizza, for that matter.

    And for the record, "Golden Fluffo" was another type of lard/shortening, like Crisco.

    And what to put on the hi-fi?

    Well, Allan Sherman for sure. Herb Albert, no doubt. And since we're in the holiday season, A Chipmunk Christmas is a must.

    Or a nice selection from the Benny Gooman Orchestra. Just don't play any of that infernal Rock-n-Roll. Have you seen the way these kids dance today?

    Hey you, git off my lawn!!

    Most teens are more interested in the serving and receiving of hot salami.

    I'd love to read that. Sounds awesome.

    In 1965 you could stop by your local Goodyear dealer and buy this:


    One of my favorites, for what it's worth.

    My parents had that record when I was a kid.
