In a time when lamb was cheaper than it is today...we often had lamb shoulder chops for dinner. Loved the little riblets along the side and the marrow in the bone in the center. Also mom's split pea soup with ham was and still is (I got the recipe) comfort food big time...with popovers or cornbread.

For me, it has to be 'kaya,' a spreadable custard-like concoction, spread over margarine on slices of fresh bread. I still crave for kaya, however, because of its high egg and coconut milk content, as well as difficulty in preparation, have to forego my childhood craze.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

I don't remember anything specific from childhood - though I ate some wierd combinations at university. A friend had this favourite dish - pichard casserole - tinned pichards in tomato sauce, tinned tomatoes and onion cooked together. It was so acidic - guarenteed indigestion.

My mom's fried chicken with rice and gravy is the absolute best. I also loved, and still do, sliced cucumbers in white vinegar - and I'd sip the vinegar when the cukes were gone

Some other childhood favorites were PB&J sandwiches with milk, fried shrimp, fluffy pancakes with sausage links and real maple syrup, fried eggs cooked in bacon fat, steak, salad with Good Seasons Italian dressing, and Kraft spaghetti dinners, which they don't make anymore. That's okay, I know how to make marinara sauce now

I always loved my mom's tuna melt sammiches... She'd toast the buns first, then put a nice mix of tuna stuff in them along with some (mozerella?) cheese. Then she'd wrap em in foil and bake em. They were DEEEE-lish!

I also loved hot dogs and pizza. Still do.

Dogs have owners ~ Cats have staff.
