FAVORITE FOODS! COMFORT FOODS!

 

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!

HOW COME? I JUST DON’T GET EXCITED ABOUT SPORTS?

I guess it’s because my parents were not sports fans either. They were blue collar people. And here I am, neither here or there about it as well.

Don’t get me wrong! I like watching sports. But as far as getting all worked up? Nowhere to be found!

Of course some of my tastes in sports are not the same as some here in the USA. I like? Cricket, handball (both versions), and many more. So far! The only game I don’t really like is baseball. Slowest game there is. I have been to baseball games. Still not a fan of it. I can’t blame my parents for it.

I have met a woman who! Did not understand why? Such a big deal over a ball? (her words! Not mine!).

I’m one that. If the home team wins? Great! If not? there’s always the next game or next season.

To me! I just can’t see! Getting all worked up over a game?

But! Because of radio & TV! I’m not missing a thing!

AFTER YOU GO!!!!!!!

Seriously! It was “her” idea to give me the boot!

But! She did me both, a favor & a blessing in disguise. As you know! The conversion was hard. She always (or supposedly!) did just about all the things. When I got the boot! In about 5 months, I took over the paying of my bills, grocerIies and then some. She thought that! I would surrender to her. Did not.

When I was married to her. She and still! Has a gambling addiction. So! What she did was. Save as much money as she could. So that she had more than enough money to feed her online/offline gambling addiction by.

The bottom line here is! I can do more things with less money. (SSI). While she does fewer things with more money!

Living by myself! I can do things, go places, eat, drink, etc.

It is hard in a way. Because! The three of them were in my life. Now & then I do feel sad for my oldest son. Because what he has to go through with her. Even though The way I was being treated by them. It felt like I was somewhere between. A slave, and a prisoner.

The details I will not go into.

I am a lot happier than I was when I was with them.

Somehow! When iI walk down the street. There are women of all ages, saying “hi!” to me and or “how are you?” as well. I don’t catch it!

But as I go along! I’ll catch on!

WHAT WAS YOUR 1ST. TASTE OF?

I was eating some cashews.It brought a lot of memories. Going to S.S. Kresge co… My mom and I. Walking by the nut dept.Smelling those different nuts roasting in oil.

Don’t get me wrong! Even the smell of restaurant and snack bar food! Is great. Snack bar food! Hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ shredded beef, Richardson’s root beer.

Candies! Peanut butter cups, haystacks, whoppers. there were many different flavors of chewing gun. Hard candies as well.

I can remember my first taste of chicken noodle soup. Always! a lunchtime! Cream soups with saltines.

My mom had this thing, about making for dinner. Would it be? Meatballs, meatloaf, homemade soup? If it was Wednesday? It was pasts. Friday? fish. Saturday? Burgers/hot dogs, fries.

Or? Were all those foods? Comfort food?
