Got a kick out of the chicken innards. When I was a kid, Mom used to make what we called gizzards and lizards. She'd toss the livers, gizzards, necks, and hearts from the chickens in the freezer until there was enough for a meal. Then she'd boil the gizzards and hearts for what seemed like hours, then toss in the livers. THEN she'd boil egg noodles in the broth and toss in a bag of mixed frozen vegetables. Always a salad. It was one of my favorite meals as a kid. There was a distinctive flavor to the broth (I think it must come from the gizzards), a certain stickiness that went into the noodles that I just loved. Nowadays you don't even get innards with chickens half the time, and the innards I got from the last 20+ lb turkey I bought were obviously from a much, much, much smaller bird.

Cheap instant ramen noodles. (Where is the "head hanging in shame" icon?) And, about once a year, blue box mac and cheese--I do doctor it with some real cheese.

I take the ramen just as they come.

Pop-Tarts
Sometimes I just don't have time for breakfast (I get up for work at 4am, so really most days) and a pop-tart will hold me til lunch

I thought we were the only ones that kept ramen in business.

Chili cheese dogs with onions. And Dominoe's used to have a 4 cheese pizza; with extra sauce it was killer.

How I long for the old fried version. The new baked one is good, but the old one was spectacular.

I think the only truly embarrassing food that I like are Twinkies and Snoballs....and that's only because they chose such dorky names for them.
