American food =

Meatloaf
Mashed Taters
Gravy
Creamed Corn
Broccli with cheese sauce
Strawberries with cream


There may be other American meals, but they're not important!

Are we limiting "American Food" to the USA exclusively? Last time I checked, "America" included North, Central and South, with all but the indigenous people and their cuisine comming from other parts of the world.

That seems to be the trend so far.
In my experience, it is people living in the USA that actually call themselves Americans, even though we all know there is a north, central and south America.

How about some popcorn and peanut butter.

Those were both considered very strange foods by some German friends in the early 70's.

lol, yeah, germany's borders have moved around a bit over the centuries.

a lot of americans think hot dogs were invented in coney island, n.y., but they were really modelled after sausages people knew from frankfurt or vienna, hence their other names frankfurters or wieners. i wouldn't doubt that even those were adopted from a denmark sausage.

the idea for "french" fries were brought back to the u.s. by the soldiers after world war 1, supposedly from belgium. but belgian fries doesn't sound as good.

ich bin ein berliner, if you want to be a doughnut.

Never thought about that, Bucky. Makes sense.
