Flashback: Menu ideas for 70's/80's potluck. Tupperware optional.

I'm helping to plan a friend's Birthday party and we're having it themed around the types of party foods we grew up with at our own parent's dinner parties. Fondue, meatballs in ketchup and grape jelly, vienna sausages, pigs in a blanket, jello-molds and deviled eggs are the only things that come to mind right now. I'm drawing a blank and I refuse to make rumaki. Keep in mind we'll have a couple of vegetarian friends and I'd like for them to eat more than Chex-mix and french onion dip. Any suggestions would be great!
