I just love old people! I love the good ol' days......I love how things were so simple back in the days.
The other day, I was thinking back to some of my childhood days when I would go to visit my grandmother and would find myself amazed at how much food would be on the table. And, when dinner was over....the food would still be left on the table, COVERED UP with a dish towel....waiting for us to eat supper. I will never forget the big bowl of quartered onions that was a main staple on the table. Did I mention how much I DISLIKE onions and the smell of onions?
The fascinating thing was the kind of foods we ate......and the names given to each tasty dish. How many of your kids have ever heard of HOT WATER cornbread? The younger generation has no clue as to how tasty this stuff is. How about sauerkraut and wieners or fold overs? Then there were mutton chops and poor man's pudding.
I know that sauerkraut and wieners is not all that strange, but my kids have never had it, nor have they ever had spam.
This past evening, I was reading one of my friends post on FB and she commented on what her grandmother used to call a "frog eyed sandwich." How many of you have ever had one of these?
How many of you even know what I'm talking about?
The truth is, I had never heard of a frog eyed sandwich before. This is a fried egg sandwich! How cool is that?
What kind of dishes do you remember having as a kid, and did any of them have any strange names?
I might just serve up some "Frog eyed sandwiches" this evening!
