Models. But Not The Victoria's Secret Kind.


My friend Astrid, a.k.a. Vintage Betti, discovered these food beauty shots at a sale years ago.  Just look at them!  All of the food groups are represented: Fatty meats, canned fruits and creamed vegetables....
Yummy!  And each delectable item is served on a Fiesta dish.


They're even called "Food Models"...designed to assist you in planning delicious and nutritious meals.


I created my own fantasy meal...A pork chop, prunes, buttered cabbage and biscuits with butter.  And for dessert?   Apple pie with a chunk of American Cheese.  Because, as a very wise woman once said: "Apple pie without some cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze!"

I love this - like paint by the numbers menu planning! And if you are inviting guests, that meal looks pretty delish to me, especially the butter cabbage and apple pie with cheese - YUM! I would love to have a set of these sitting out on the kitchen counter for inspiration.

Interesting. Your fantasy meal includes prunes? And cabbage? You might want to eat that meal alone... just sayin.'

I must say I would not choose that as my fantasy meal..........but I would love to "play with the food".

I used these very same pictures in my Home Economics class back in the 1970s...it was fun to see them again!

I think I still have those stored in the attic. First I kept them in my teacher stash. Later I kept them because of the Fiesta dishes. What a trip down memory lane.

Those are super cool! I found a vintage magazine spread with a similar meal planning photo layout. These could be used to make some cool kitchen magnets!
