      1. Sukiyaki and Fondue for main dishes are very '60s.
        ...and don't forget the onion soup/sour cream dip!

          thank you so much ! I will have to google Sukiyaki , as I have never heard of that. I have been looking into different Fodue's.

          1. re: VenusCafe

            Onion dip is certainly a classic. Ina's updated version is ALWAYS a hit.

                Clam dip was the dip I remember eating back then. By the gallon. mmmm

                  And the clam dip needed to be scooped up with Fritos!

                    Fritos were preceded by the original corn chip - the long-forgotten Dipsy Doodles. But how Madison Ave. can manipulate memory of a young kid to remember the jingle decades after the product has disappeared from the shelves. I'm humming it now.

                      Oh, Dipsy Doodles...I remember you well :)

                    Grew up on clam dip almost every Sunday afternoon around a card game! Family afternoon - Canasta, Pinochle, Poker, etc.

                    you'll be serving Ripple Chips with this, I'm thinking?

              2. it's not a party without those little hot dogs in pastry

                  Doing this , Thank you !! Wrapped in bisquits?

                  1. re: 60sPartyBash

                    Wrapped in Pillsbury Crescent rolls. (Canned Vienna sausages.)

                  2. re: zackly

                    I make these but use chicken-apple sausage. Started making them for lunch for my son when he was young, and they're good with spicy brown mustard.
