I was reading Reminisce Magazine yesterday. For some reason that magazine always makes me hungry. So, what were the best foods you remember as a kid?
We had a donut shop next door and when we would go catch the bus to school the little Italian gramma inside would come out with fresh, warm donuts for us, free of charge.
On a similar topic, my dad always liked trying things that were different. A lot of people thought the sugar on tomatoes was odd. He also liked limburger cheese and herring on New Year's. One favorite story was about the time he was at a dinner where possum was served. The host was greatly complimented until the other guests found out what they had eaten.
I had my first watermelon last week. It was delicious.
I'll always remember the ice cream cake my parents bought for me for my 10th birthday.
Fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, field peas, corn on the cob, butter beans, okra, squash, sliced tomatoes with cucumbers and onions in vinegar, cornbread and a hot peach cobbler with homemade ice cream, all washed down with sweet tea.
Wow! Today that stuff would sell for big dollars--all that high protein, no carbs :-). Who knows maybe they just make it in bar form now and throw in a few sugary flavors and call it a Protein Bar. How embarrasing for that poor child though. My heart goes out to him, couldn't have been easy to have seizures so young.
When I was a little girl, we had a hamburger place here in Houston, that was called Price's, they made a little burger but it had a great "secret sauce". My parents used to take us on Saturdays and we always used to talk about what the secret sauce could be.
Fried green tomatoes!
Fried chicken and cream gravy!
One of my favorites was our Easter Chowder. After sunrise service at the beach, my brothers, Dad and I would go clamming down in Scott's Cove and bring back a bushel of quahogs that would be turned into chowder that evening. Rich, creamy and warming - worth mucking about in the freezing cold water!
He was coach and I played first or short.
Roasted Duck with Mango Salsa.
mmBow, Bow, Bow!
Mac and cheese with tomatoes. NO SUGAR. They serve that in some eating places around here and it's so sweet its gross!
Last ones were near the Dome and over by TSU on Main.
Price's or Prince's?
You've done your research!
You're right, I was talking about Princes with the royal carhops.
Wite Castle hamburgers...way gback then you could buy a dozen bag for ONE BUCK..great aroma..they steamed/fried them on a bed of chopped onions
