I've already commented in other threads how i'm surprised the way my mom fed us didn't lead to scurvy or rickets (altho i'm a healthy 5'9 and sis is 5'11, and brother is 6'3) ....
I came across this thread today
I'm actually REALLY surprised mom never did this! seems like her style between serving buttered cooked noodles with salt and butter and on a rare occasion kraft parm cheese dust. And she eats ketchup and white bread sandwiches (ewww!) even today.
Anyone else have any odd cheap foods they grew up eating?
Its not really from my childhood but grew out of my childhood.
I eat my baked potatoes with sour cream and A1 (but I don't eat steaks)
and my cottage cheese with bacos. only bacos. no sub branding allowed! and the kids want "the red stuff" with their cottage cheese too!
