Retro Wednesday....




As a kid, did you ever have ground up Bologna and pickles mixed with mayo?
Or ground up roast beef?...No? Boy, did you miss out!
Anyway....This little kitchen tool has been around a LONG time, I lovingly refer to it as the very first 'food processor', hahahaha....G
Peace...!!!

I've seen a grinder like that. My grandma had one. I don't like my meat ground up, though. I want nice, thick slabs of balogna and lots of layers of piled up roast beef. Hold the pickles.:)

Mona said...

Galen, In India people still use that grinder, specially to mince meat!

I don't have one, but I have seen many around, still being use everywhere!

You saw my Kitchen-Aid grinder attachment in my last post- The one you have(new!) would cost more than this attachment!

Shadow said...

how cool. and no, i don't think it would survive in our house. if it doesn't have a power cord or batteries, hubby tends to ignore it. or replace it with one that does....

Hey Galen, you aren't freezing yet are you?

My grandmother use to have one of those whachamacallits that you have pictured there.

Have a good day and stay warm!

I love it. I looked around for something just like that and I must have been looking in the wrong place. They wanted to sell me Kitchen-Aid mixers with an attachment.

I know the roast beef is good. Never tried something like bologna, pickles and mayo but it sounds really good.

Love your retro Wednesdays.

Bologna and pickles? Blah! Leave out the Bologna. I'll just have the pickles. No, I'm not pregnant.

I was going to buy something similar a couple months ago to grind corn for fresh masa. I might still get one.

We still have two of them one for meat and one for horseradish
