Fluffy Mackerel Pudding, anyone?

Beanmushroom Not long ago, we brought you James Lileks' Gallery of Regrettable Food. And now, for nostalgia buffs who are watching their waistlines, we bring you this site dedicated to Weight Watcher recipe cards from the '70s.

It's not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, but it did make me laugh myself sick. Click on the above pic to view the bean and mushroom salad in its full, quivering glory, then ponder the site author's musing: "See how the Ceramic Mushroom Family has gathered to show their children what happens to bad little mushrooms." The props are almost as scary as the food!

Warning: The language does get a bit salty at times, but oh my, that Roast Chicken, Italian Style is, well, indescribably, delectably disgusting. And the Fluffy Mackerel Pudding? Nuff said. Whatever you do, I hope you do not get inspired by this site for the F&B at your next retro-event!

(Thanks to a cyber friend who shall remain anonymous for bringing this one to my attention. I think.)
