My Mom's cooking. The smell of celery, sage, onions and butter on Thanksgiving morning (for the dressing) and her Rouladen.
You have to order in English :-)
Well I went to Annuncation School, downtown because my Dad worked nearby, and then went to Marian High School in Bellaire, which is now an Episcopal High School, off of 610 and Bissonnet. I lived on Bellaire Blvd. near Strake in the 60's. I almost went to St. Agnes but decided I wanted to go to a co-ed high school. lol Did you know Sister Brendan? She also taught at ST. Vincents at one time. She had a terrible Irish temper! lol
I love the Po-boys from Antoines! Even the grocery stores sell them now but they are not very fresh. I used get them at Taft or S. Main.
I just heard that! Now that is Philly English though, right?
Youse got that right
No steak for you.
As I have been reading this thread I wonder why people didn't have as many health issues back then? Shhh! I still eat raw batter. Hasn't killed me yet.
Two words....Amorosa Rolls.......
Tuna, noodle, and potato chips. All mixed together. My mom made it and I LOVED it!
If that happened to us, my husband would make sure that lab was flying out the door. Although, when we were leaving once I saw (through the window)our dog standing on his hind legs checking on if there were any leftovers on the table.
Which reminds me of the time I was about 12 or 13. My golden lab wanted in my room. I had a large bowl of popcorn on the floor. He didn't look at me twice. Just ran in and dived head first into that bowl of popcorn.
I miss the ORIGINAL Slim Jims before they added soy. That damn soy additive RUINED the taste. But before the soy was added it was DELICIOUS. Crunchy but moist on the inside.
Bacaloa frito in Puerto Rico. Street vendors used to sell them at about a quarter a piece. It was fried cod but fried in a special PR style. BTW, cod has become a rarity in recent years but I LOVED that bacalao frito!
So, is that how to make tuna noodles? I can't stand it when we get to the point that we have to have tuna noodles. I will suddenly not be hungry. "Here kids, you like it? You can have more." Maybe potato chips would help. I only had it right once. I had dinner at a neighbor's house a couple years back. I remember peas and a lot of paprika. It was good. I don't know how to make it so it tastes as good.
Greek pizza. There was a Greek guy near me who sold square (not round) pizza in square slices. What really made it different is that he smothered the pizza in olive oil. VERY TASTY. Never had pizza like it since.
Soy is evil. A lot of "good mommies" read labels to see if something is low calorie or low fat. I read labels to see if what I am getting has soy or not.
Soy has RUINED many a food.
