My dad would eat peanut butter and onion sandwiches, toasted bread w/ butter added. Would always have a bite. Was missing him the other night and made one, pretty good stuff! And boiled hot dogs w/ ketchup. I could of ate that everyday. Liked to eat shrimp and mandarin oranges out of the can. When microwaves came out I would cook eggs in it, made sure to pierce the membrane or they exploded. Cinnamon toast too. My friend used to make macaroni and pour tomato soup from the can over em. Fried shrimp was my fave when going out to eat. I used to be obsessed with cheese. We couldn't afford real cheese only Velveeta. Ever had that on pizza and tacos, yuck! Only good for grilled cheese and a few other things. My first paycheck from Dairy Queen I bought a chunk of cheddar. My fridge never is without lots of different cheeses now. It's a sign that we are doing well when we have lots of good cheese:) I have fond memories of my mom and grandma's cooking but those I mentioned were kids foods that were unique that I just don't eat anymore.

Mac and tomatoes, havn't thought about them in years. It was the ultimate comfort food back in the dark ages when I was young. Lots of butter and pepper on the mac
and then crushed tomatoes. Yummy, wonder if husband would go for it.

I remember I loved avocado, I'd use a spoon to peel the skin and eat'em alone. When I turned about 8 years old suddenly I lost my taste for them. It wasn't until I was around 24 and driving back from California that I pulled into a cafe outside of El Paso after midnight, I ordered the biggest mexican dinner on the menu. I think it was called the El Grande or something like that, anyway it came with guacamole I was so hungry I devoured the meal and started loving avocado's again. + Mom's fried chicken with Pace picante sauce.

Hey Choclatechef, my Mom used to make that for us quite a bit. She would always make an extra batch of pie crust just for this. What a treat! And now as a parent, I've made it many times for my girls, even if I'm not baking pies. It's simple and comforting.

Wow! I never knew other moms made this for their kids! I thought I had the only one.

I am glad that you love it too.

It's one of my mom's and my favorites, too! It was always a treat when my grandma or mom would make a pie and have leftover "trimmings" of the pie crust to bake with cinnamon sugar.

Another goodie was if there was frosting left over from a cake and we'd make graham cracker sandwiches with it. Mmmmm...

Bird's Eye Creamed Peas with those little potatoes in it - YUMMMMMMM - I sure wish they still made them. I know I can make them from scratch but I can never duplicate that exact flavor.

...and Swanson's TV Dinner - the one with fried chicken, buttered corn, mashed potatoes, and chocolate cake (I think it was chocolate cake - or some kind of fudge cake).
