How does one achieve that “Relaxed Party-Giving Feeling”?

Live Better… Electrically!!!

Throwing parties is a breeze with this entertaining little cookbook, written by Marguerite Fenner, and published in 1960 by Milliken Publishing Company for PG&E’s Home Economics Department.

Although, if you look at this cover illustration, it is hard to determine whether Suzy Homemaker’s electric appliances are responsible for her carefree attitude, or because hubby/pool boy has been drafted into service preparing the froofy electric blender smoothies.

Try this tasty number — Fresh Pineapple Mint Splash!
1 cup diced fresh pineapple
3 oranges, peeled and cut
1/4 pound after-dinner mints
1/2 cup water
1 cup chipped ice

Put all ingredients except ice in container. Cover and liquefy at low speed. Add ice and run at high speed until ice is melted. If too thick, add more ice or water. Makes about 4 servings.
