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!

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?
