Seems I am on a food kick!!

What things do you eat that bring back old (even childhood) memories??

Balogna sandwiches is one for me....having one right now!

Stew is another one, but had too many as a youth! :disgust:


What gets your memory going?? :popcorn:

My moms Swedish (well technically Finnish) meatballs or meatloaf, of course both with gravy and mashed taters... Probably my favorite as well...

Mom's recipe called "cheap n' good".

Basically macaroni, cheddar cheese, canned tomatoes and ground beef (or whatever red meat is on hand). Some oregano and salt and pepper for seasoning.

So are french fries, escargots, belgian waffles, and many others.................:rolleyes:


Now a hearty bowl of beef borscht with a dollop of sour cream, and a suitable amount of crusty bread sounds good right about now...:Yee Ha:
My mom's mom is Ukrainian ( still alive in her 90's) and her dad was English so the cooking was a combo of awesome fats and flavours with (generally) overcooked meat and vegetables...For me, perogies or pedaheh as we called them boiled then fried in butter topped with sateed onions and bacon bits drowning in sour cream is PURE SOUL FOOD!!!

When I am fishing PBJ(on white, no butter) and hard boiled eggs. That was my Dad's lunch of choice for the boat.

Potato Soup. My mom made it growing up. Still a comfort to me when I'm sick. little dash of pepper in it and some salt. Best thing on earth in my mind.

And oddly enough her Tuna Casserole!

I used to like pan-fried smelts that mom did. She fried them skin-on and crispy.

She also used to make a very simple dessert. She'd core apples (probably the older ones - but who noticed) and then just wrap them in pastry. Bake them in the oven until done. Then she'd heat brown sugar in a pot or pan until it melted, making a cheap and tasty drizzle for over the baked apples. Man, those were good.

I miss my mommy! : :

My memory food is sh*t on a shingle.

Mom used to make it for us. A change from cow tongue for dinner.
It was creamed peas, creamed eggs, and creamed beef, on toast, IIRC.

Grandmas green bean soup. Green beans, farmer sausage and potatoes seasoned with fresh "summer savoury". Also borscht, and "faspa" which was our traditional Sunday evening meal- fresh made yogurt buns or svibok, cold cuts, cheese and pickles.

Some combinations just should not be tried, invented, or spoken about.... :beaten:

...kinda like sardines on toast..... :disgust:
Sort of but I like the concept .... I like mine right out of the can but chase then with some fresh white bread and cold water.. Family tradition..:Oh Yeah!:

Problem is now I have to fight the dog every time I open a can... Had to buy him some dried "Dines" just so I can enjoy mine in peace..:Heh, heh, heh:

In used to make three kinds of smoked sausage while working at Ted's Meat Market (in Parskville). He showed me how he cut up four or five spuds into a pot, just about (but not quite) covered them with water, layered in an inch or so of Sauerkraut, and then laid a smoked sausage on top of everything.

Bring to a boil, cook the spuds while heating up the kraut and sausage, and the drain everything. Put the kraut and spuds into a bowl, add a dollop of sour cream and a pat of butter - mash it all together and then make patties out of the mixture. Pan fry the patties in butter and serve them hot right beside the cut up smoked sausage. A side dish of sour cream completed this treat.

There are some smells that don't agree with me.. Eggs frying in a pan is one..
I remember waking up as a youth around 03:00 to the smell of Dear Dad making himself a Fried Egg sandwich ..:disgust:
Eggs for me have to be poached, boiled or scrambled...
