Reminiscing: Waring Cook Book for the 14 Speed Blendor

I haven't run out of crazy cookbooks yet, gentle readers. Here's the next in the series:

I really think that it would have been a good idea for the suits at Waring to spring for some color photography. The only photos in the book are at the beginning of each section and, as you will see, some of these pictures would benefit from a little more detail to distinguish the food made in the Waring "blendor" from poo.

The first example is the photo that begins the section on baby food:

This one isn't much better--it's just a different consistency:

This is almost too horrible for words. The photo below goes along with the recipe on the next page for a "Chicken Ring." And what do you think holds all of this together? If you guessed gelatin, you would be right. Seriously, how many disgusting recipes involving gelatin were invented in the 1960s?

What IS that crap in the white bowl? For that matter, what IS that crap in the red bowl?
That's it for this one--as I said, the Waring people were cheap and didn't include much photography.

Next up: Ozark 'Vittles.' I can't believe I just typed that...
