Thanks KayLinda - You triggered a memory of the little paper wrapped cans with the little red devils on it with "deviled ham". I liked those when I was a kid.

But anyway, you made me think about making my own ham spread. I have a ham shank in the fridge that I need to do something with soon, and I have a jar of pickle relish (that I only use in a few recipes like tuna salad), and I have a stick blender with a "chop fine" attachment that would work in place of a grinder. Humh. Most go look for ham spread recipes now :-)

Thanks,

Bob

Jack Daniels, Southern Comfort, Bacardi Rum and Tequila. Drank my quotient in HS and college, LOL!

Canned chili because I read the fat content of a can

I used to toast bread, put a Swanson Salisbury Patty on, pile on cheddar cheese and sour cream then the gravy over all... not any more!

Hamburger Helper. It seems to have changed something in the formula, just isn't good to me now.

Slim Jims because their quality seems to have slipped A LOT. I still like meat snacks, but also read their fat content, darn it.

Fruit Float and 1 2 3 Whipped or whatever it was called, but only because they are no longer sold, LOL!

Semolina Yuk...reminds me of school dinners, they used to make us wait until everyone had finished...so even if you didn't eat it, you had to sit & look at it!!

So many of the things already listed are things I can't stomach anymore, either. I rememebr what a good cook I used to think I was, making a one-dish meal out of Hamburger Helper and those Lipton Rice dishes.....
We're raising my cousin, who's 10 now (he's been with us for two years now), and there have been so many firsts since he came to live with us..... First camping trip, first snowfall, first time being told to eat what he was given or nothing....
But the really funny one was Spam. I hadn't eaten it in years, and he saw it on the shelf in the commissary and asked about it. So I got him some. I frizzled it in a pan and fed it to him with some eggs. I took one little taste and nearly spit it out. GACK!
We've since gone vegetarian, and now most of the processed things I used to like taste awful.

It really gets me when people complain about the price of food......we (in general) spend $2,000 on a TV, $400 on a Blu-Ray player, oodles on a Wii, not to mention designer clothing....who pays $1,000 for a pair of Manolo Blahniks?
Why should what we put IN our bodies be of any less importance? KWIM?

Fairy Bread this is white slices of bread spread with butter and on top sprinkled with Hundreds and Thousands which are tiny pin sized multicoloured round candy balls. Fairy Bread mainly made for the enjoyment of children at childrens parties but secretly whoffed down by adults when no-ones watching . Brings back memories.

Still like the occasional slim jim.. and Dinty Moore beef stew with dumplings on top is tolerable and I still enjoy my Spaghetti-Oh's.
