Retro Recipe Challenge #4: Fall Favorites Round-Up

"Welcome, everyone, to the Junior League's 'Cats in Trees Benefit Dinner.' As you probably know, cats getting stuck in trees has reached epidemic levels in our community, diverting our firemen from their primary task. Just last week, a church, a hospital, and a convent all burned down while the Fire Department was busy getting Queenie out of a maple tree. But before we get to our keynote speaker, please enjoy the lavish spread provided by our wonderful members."

Ulrike aka ostwestwind at K├╝chenlatein serves up Swede Mash, with a side of sausage.

For your salad, Gillian at Food History has salad cream .

I just ate lunch: why am I hungry already?

It's the retro food: you eat and 20 minutes later, you're back to being hungry again.
