OH, I remember seeing this dip everywhere in the mid-eighties. It was always a hit!

Could be...but, I do remember seeing it a lot in the 80's...maybe because I grew up in Wyoming and we were always 10 years behind...just kidding!!!! Took that long for fads to get there by stagecoach...

What about broccoli casserole?I have a recipe with campbell's soup in it.What kind of meat dishes were popular at parties in 85?
Broccoli casserole is a good choice. Veggie medleys, veggies with sliced almonds or with some other ingredient were pretty popular.

Meat dishes....like stand-alone or in something else? I had a lot of things then that seemed to have wine and mushroom sauces. Cooking with wine was pretty new and popular to those in my crowd in the mid-80s.

Fondues have been around since the late-fifties and early sixties but seems timeless in that it will pop up in each decade and never fails to please. What was cool about fondue is that one makes it, and someone in every crowd has never had it before. If you asked my nieces, they would say fondue is a 90's thing b/c I took them to a fondue restaurant then.

Recipes will vary depending on what you are making. Some have juice, some use jello, and others have alcohol (for shooters), but all have Knox gelatin.

Knox gelatin and juice, usually apple. Made correctly, the blocks could be played with for a while before eating them. More of a kids party thing, but it is an 80's memory for me.

Oh, I hope they do. It will look like the cast party from St. Elmo's Fire! Just fun!

Me too! Between the Knox Blocks and shooters, I think they were everywhere.
