As I was watching Tv. & Munching on raisins!
I thought about my life & times as a child growing up. The foods my mom always made sure that I just might like
As far back as five years old, she made mashed potatoes, with green peas mixed in. She was making sure I ate what she puts on my plate.
A few things! She made was?
Scrambled eggs with ketchup, breaded fish sticks with, ketchup, raisins, in a cup, frozen green peas in a cup, prune juice, then prunes, postum (Look it up!), chicken, noodle soup, any soups even hers!
As I got older! The kids in the neighborhood! Every time we went to the delicatessen. I would buy my usual candies. They would buy Malo cups, Reese’s, peanut butter, cups, pixy stix, etc.
Even as a kid! I did not like swiss, cheese! I did not like the “smell” of it! As I got older. In my late teens. I tried it again. I loved it!
Now that I am on my own! There are so many “comfort” foods!
Ever since Saturday! When I went shopping. I came home with many items that I keep thinking to myself: “I cannot believe, I’m eating this”!
Raisins, olives, trail mix, salsa, scoop chips, pickle spears, imitation crab legs, so on!
It’s a combination of a lot of things. 1. Things my mom gave me. 2.the ex!
Being on my own. Has given me more time to buy things that she made sure that I did not have what I wanted!
But! That was then! This is now!
