vintage homemakers ad of the day (or goodbye ruby chicken)

Vintage Ad #1,019: Goodbye Ruby Chicken...

We may have a new winner in the “most disgusting looking dish ever developed by a corporate test kitchen” department. Ms. Ruby Chicken might have had good intentions, but frankly her dish is a comedy of errors. From the rosy-cheeked, oh-so-70s cartoon of Ms. Chicken in squaw garb to the mothballs floating in the nutrient bath that passes for sauce, one may pause to consider if extended exposure to cranberries has a detrimental effect on the brain.

On the plus side, this meal is an excellent way to fight a sudden attack of scurvy.
