How to serve pigs-in-a-blanket for the holidays



I'd go to town with this retro idea, making two concentric rows of pigs-in-a-blanket surrounded by curly parsley. And I'd serve mustard.

If you prefer not to use frozen piggies, make your own with cut-up hot dogs and crescent dough.

Add some retro to your tomato juice

This 1960 ad from Sunkist suggests you squirt some fresh lemon juice into your tomato juice.

I don't drink tomato juice. Not even as a Bloody Mary. Very strange, I know. But I do love lemons. And they look so pretty in this ad, I couldn't resist.
