Retro Night, Revised

Like most children of the 1970s and ’80s, Neil and I grew up eating sloppy joes on the regular. When I found out that Manwich (the chauvinistically-named canned sloppy joe sauce of our youth) contains high fructose corn syrup, I went in search of a recipe for a homemade version several years ago. It’s evolved over the years, and now we even use bison instead of ground beef.

In honor of our retro sloppy joe night, I made the Iceberg Salad in Make it Ahead. It calls for blue cheese, so naturally, I used feta. Like our sloppy joe recipe, it has evolved from its 1970s iceberg ancestors, but it still retains its vintage charm.


Of course, once I’m in a vintage mood, there’s very little that can stop me from combing through old cookbooks. So, yeah.

  1. That tongue recipe is revolting and wonderful! Old cookbooks are the best. One day we’re going to look back and say, “Quinoa!? Who were these weirdos?”
