Remember This? Boomer Nostalgia

Looking through vintage magazines I remember things I had forgotten.
I remember when making little pizzas was a cool snack! It was easy as "1-2-3" when we used a toaster/broiler oven.

Recipe for Pizza Dreams
3 large English muffins
1 small can Tomato sauce
1/2 tsp Oregano
Anchovy Fillets and/or Italian Sausage

1 cup Mozzarella cheese cut in small pieces (or sharp Cheddar or Amer.)
1. Pull muffins apart. Place on pan lined with Reynolds Wrap. Toast lightly under broiler. Remove.
2.Spread each piece with tomato sauce, sprinkle with Oregano. Add Anchovy fillet and slices of sausage, and pieces of the cheese.
3.Return to broiler until cheese is melted and he sauce is bubbling Serves 6.

Nehi is made to the highest flavor standards in America. That's why it's America's fastest-selling fruit flavor line. Try Nehi Orange, Nehi Grape, or some of the other fine Nehi flavors. And try them soon. A product of Royal Crown Cola Co.

And try them soon? Don Draper would have never let Peggy slip that one by.

The Coppertone Ads always had that little girl whose panties were being pulled down. Not so cute today. 
Breck Shampoo showed real women, many who became well known actresses and models, always painted in soft pastels.
Sally Draper? Is that you? Once a upon a time we had to add sugar to the Koo-Aid mix of artificial flavors and artificial colors. Then this innovation came out--sugar ADDED. Whole generations grew up on Kool-Aid. Sad.
I had no idea that in 1963 there were automatic ice makers. My folks never had one. Ever.
 Vinyl flooring was so popular folks even installed it over wood floors. Yep.
The Patty Duke Show! Cousins who looked alike but were different as night and day. I watched it. Did you?
I remember my brother got Soaky toys. I was too old.

But my school lunch sandwiches were packed in Waxtex!

I wore Hush Puppies.

 I think they cheated. Or Mom was very young when she gave birth.
This photo is SO romantic. The night, the lovely lady, the dial of the phone lit up like the moon.
