Wink Favorite childhood food, different or strange

This thread is inspired by Goodweed of the north- I remember eating limburger on rye bread w/my Dad, onion sandwiches w/my uncle at a very young age. My brother and I fighting over the chicken heart w/Mom made fried chicken.

I used to eat a mug of oatmeal. Not cooked, just oats out of the box. No wonder I was so healthy. I would stick my tongue into the cup and see how many oats would stick to it.

My word, that must have been dry...

My mother worked full time and still managed to cook everything from scratch. She was totally adamant about no pre prepared meals and I was a lucky kid.

And then I went to a friend's house and discovered Smash instant mash potato and tomato ketchup and fish fingers. This became my favourite meal for years (I still occasionally long for fish fingers) but it was the smash that really did it. I loved it pre mixed and would steal the packet my father caved in and bought and eat the nuggets of dried potato. Or I would eat it mixed up with tomato ketchup stirred in it so it became orange marbled. Sometimes peas were added to this.
Then my mother decided enough was enough aand insisted we went back to home cooked mash. I remember the night I was crying for "real" mash and she was crying because I had gone over to the dark side despite her best efforts.

Its real, hommemade potato all the way for e nnowadays, but my mother buys hers already mashed now....funny and sad how things change.

When I was a kid, I would take my mashed potatoes and mix in my corn and then I would stir in some catsup. I have no idea were that came from.

I remember my grandfather Pfohl eating Limburger cheese on hot summer days. Oh my goodness, it smelled so bad.

When I was a child, one of my favorite meals was grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup (made with milk not water). The sandwiches had to be made with Velveeta so they'd be nice and gooey when I bit into them. I still love grilled cheese and tomato soup. Yum!

mmmmmmmmmm.......I guess "different" would be for an evening snack, if there was leftover rice, we would have a bowl of rice, milk, and sugar. We ate our hot fruit turnovers in a bowl with ice cold milk poured over them.

I guess for a child eating sardines and smoked oysters on saltines would be strange or different - after swimming every Friday and Saturday my dad and I would come home and eat them.
