Old Favorite from the past

Someone in another thread mentioned banana pudding. Then sparked a memory of eating those cheap, but yummy frozen cream pies with my dad. My favorite was the banana cream pie, with the whipped cream ring on the outside. I loved it cold. It was a sweet and refreshing desert for a boy while watching the Wild Wild West on a Friday night. Good memories.

When we were in our early teens we ate those. We always liked them half frozen.

That was when we thought factory food was superior to our own home cooking.

We were just plain stupid!

I used to love Chef Boy-Ar-Dee pizza and spaghetti kits. I and my teenage buddies would buy a package of sliced pepperoni to add to it fire it up in the oven. We thought it was delicious. I purchased oin about a year ago as i hadn't had one in twenty years or more. I just wanted to relive a memory. To my surprise, the pizza was terrible. I think I'd still like the banana cream pie though. I'll have to try one in the next month or so.

I had the same experience with hamburger helper that I had with the pizza. To my tastes, the stuff is truly gross tasting. But at one time, I loved the stuff. Oh how my tastes have changed over the years, and definitely for the better.

There was a concoction that was made by Castleberry's. It was called Georgia Hash. I haven't seen it in years. That was some good stuff. 'Course it likely had some pieces and parts in there that some folks wouldn't care to hear about.

Same here with hamburger helper, Rice-a-roni, stovetop stuffing. I don't like a lot of things I used to. I'm 64 now, and I'm tired of the taste of bell peppers. I stopped using pepper for several years before I realized it provides necessary nutrients.

We've all gotten pretty good at making similar dishes such as the hamburger helper ones so that the original tastes nowhere near as good. IMO
