but c'mon, I plainly put this post in my rarely-used Bargain Bin Meat category...
In case you're not into Facebook (which planet do you live on? I wanna visit...) here're some of the ideas the folks over there came up with:
thousand island dressing
It went on and on, in spite of my generous clues, like "Depression Era" and "one of the Most American Foods Ever" -- oh, and the main ingredient comes from an animal.
My favorite idea came from Karrie Sue, who said it looks like a green bean chocolate shake. No, but that's a damned good idea.
1 can potted meat (aka "potty meat" in my house of origin)
1 large dill pickle, diced
1 tablespoon mayo
Stir it all together 'til the mayo and "meat" are blended. Mixture will be runny, yes, runny like, well, you tell me... Place in fridge for about half an hour.
When you pull it outta the fridge, serve it with Chicken in a Biskit crackers (if you can find 'em -- The Editor did on our last foray at Fiesta, but it was the first time either of us had seen that cracker in years and the last box on the shelf.)
The Old Man (whose emails are featured here) would be proud. Except I think he likes Ritz better than Chicken in a Biskit.
