Happy Memorial Day!

Some vintage photographs and ads from the 50's and 60's to prepare you for your BBQ.

Love a woman in a fabulous dress & full makeup grilling the world's largest steak with one hand and holding a stick of butter in the other. She is perched elegantly next to a disposable grill.

My back hurts looking at this photo. Grills must be seated or standing level. Always.
Always have beer.
I love eating pork & beans straight from the can. I will make this. This is how all of my guests dress for my barbecues. A glass of milk to go with your hamburger?
My brother still loves a cold glass of milk with his dinner. My family usually serves bread with butter with all of our meals. I believe this may be another habit from the past...
The dapper Duncan Hines in 1952.You can't go wrong with kebobs.

Yes, the California barbecue can't be beat. Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you to the veterans who have died serving our country.

That first pic is classic. That steak is massive. I laughed immediately when I saw that pic! Great post!
