Festive Foods We Still Enjoy
Many of us enjoy the food and fashion trends from the 1960s and 70s. Some of these retro appetizers are family favorites, and I’ll bet a few of them are still on your menu today. (Perhaps you tasted them in your mother’s or grandmother’s kitchen?)
For instance, I never get tired of swirled eggs, salmon mousse, or mini quiches. And my husband could eat cocktail weiners every day of the week! I’m sure you agree that a festive cheese ball on the holiday buffet table is never left untouched.
Let’s leave our bruschetta, hummus, tapas, and sushi in the refrigerator for now. This photo post is intended to jog your memory, so you can come up with additional tried and true favorites. Updated presentations catapult this list of retro hors d’oeuvres right into the present.
