When I was a child my favorite food was Oatmeal and milk, american cheese sandwiches, cooked tongue, pot roast, broiled chicken in a big pot with potatoes, carrots, and lots of other things that I can't remember. I also loved split pea soup.

Mom used to save up chicken innards in the freezer. When she had enough for an entire meal, she'd boil them, then boil noodles in the broth and toss in veggies. Us kids used to call it lizards and gizzards (it was, in reality, livers, gizzards, hearts and sometimes because they were so cheap, before Bufallo wings were invented, a bag of wings). My dad loved limburger and sardines as well, they were favorite snacks. I'm like some, couldn't get either past my nose.

When I was a kid, my girlfriends parents use to eat fried brains with lard and onion sandwiches.

I remember my mum making all of us eat oatmeal (sometimes I would flavour it with Ovaltine, a malt chocolate beverage) before going to school and drink ginseng tea to boost our immunity when we had too many late nights due to homework and studying.

I went through a 'vegetable soup and chips' phase, mainly because it was the latest 'cool' thing to hit my school.
I am talking over 30 years ago, sounds rather tame now doesn't it?

I loved liver and onions, as well as peanut butter, butter and brown sugar sandwiches. My mom and I would split the liver, gizzard and heart whenever we had a turkey dinner.

Grandma's homemade chocolate pudding still warm with just a small amount of cream dribbled on top. And stuffed cabbage also made by Grandma.

As long as we're reminiscing here and if you're like me (banned from eating most of it today) two things from childhood: #1homemade gravy over fresh bread #2 my dad's grilled hot dogs split down the middle, stuffed with cheddar cheese, and wrapped in bacon--OMG I'm drooling now with the memories
