Fellow blogger, cookiecrumb, over at I’m Mad and I Eat tagged me with a Meme. So far I had managed to dodge these things. They kind of remind me of chain letters, and I like chain letters as much as I like Amway salespeople. But this concept of listing five of my childhood food memories intrigued me.
I jumped into the wayback machine I have attached to an old black and white T.V.in the garage. I started it up and began my journey. Hey Mr. Peabody “what’s up dog?”. There’s Sherman, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Boris and Natasha. Next up, Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, girls dancing, oh my. Adam Twelve 415 man with a gun. I Dream of Jeanie, hot outfit girl! The Mickey Mouse Club with girls dancing, makes me feel all funny in my tummy. Knock it off fool, that’s childhood food memories! M.I.C. see ya real soon, K.E.Y., why because we like you. M.O.U.S.E. Enough already here’s my list in no particular order.
Tastykake chocolate cupcakes
Little Tavern hamburgers – much like White Castle little burgers buy em by the bag
Hot Shoppes Mighty Mo and Teen Twist Sandwiches - a Washington D.C. drive thru restaurant.
French fries with gravy. Closely followed by McDonald’s original fresh cut fries cooked in lard.
Mom’s potato salad. Made with Miracle Whip and Lawry’s Season Salt. Served along ham sandwiches on dinner rolls with hot mustard.
There’s the list. Hey Rocky watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat….Grrrrrr!
