- Food from your childhood.
The Good – My grandma’s chips.
cooked in a well worn old pan, served with a bit of salt and vinegar. Also anything that she baked; jam tarts, mince pies, cakes, etc.
The Bad: Tripe.
My ( probably well meaning ) parents only tried once to feed us tripe cooked in milk, keeping my brother and I at the table for 3 hours trying to get us to eat it, before admitting defeat.Posted 4 years agospacemonkeyMember
My mum was a brilliant home cook so we often had loads of tasty grub on the go including the best ever pepperoni pizzas, cannelloni, chicken supreme and other 70s/80s classics.
But when we were totally brassic we’d sometimes have complete cack. I rememeber filling out a Pools coupon one evening then sitting down to:
Also remember making the batter for these bad boys:
Sausage plait served with spaghetti hoops was another.Posted 4 years agomogrimMember
Liver, still can’t eat the horrible stuff.
Bought a can of tinned ravioli a couple of years ago, that was horrible too. Definitely something best left in the past!
Most of the rest of my childhood food I still cook every now and then, apart perhaps from 70s classics like cheese n pineapple cocktail sticks, and pineapple sauce on gammon steak.Posted 4 years agomarcus7Member
Pizza and chips for dinner, scrape off the topping and eat, then butter the pizza and fill with chips…. amazing. also get a penguin type biscuit and bite off a small piece of the opposing corners use as a straw in a hot drink (when the liquid has made it to the top of the biscuit then consume entire biscuit in one go!)…. go on try it you know you want to… 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Fried Spam anyone?
On the ice pops- we had those but they had a different name. Gah cant think of it.
On a recent 28dayslater forum inside an old abandoned building was a can of pop from the 70’s- a weird ring pull one with a white body and a sort of 2lt coke bottle bottom. Anyone remember that?? If you asked me to I’d never know but as soon as I saw the can I thought WOW- it flooded back.Posted 4 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
