Week 5: Favorite Food. What was your favorite food from childhood? If it was homemade, who made it? What was in this dish, and why was it your favorite? What is your favorite dish now?

This is the one prompt that stumped me. There are many foods I liked but favorite isn’t like jumping out at me. What I remember more is our routine some of our meals were and why I only remember these days is beyond me. Thursdays we had liver and onion or liver and bacon. Fridays we had Spaghetti with butter and garlic sauce or fish sticks but I don’t remember with what. The other was canned salmon with rice & peas but once you have had fresh salmon canned salmon is just plain nasty. Another was homemade Mac and Cheese, I really liked how my Dad made it. I liked all the meals we had. My Dad made great Split Pea soup with a Ham bone as well as Lentil Beans with a Ham bone. My Dad was the chief cook in our house; he was a very good cook and cooked better than my Mom. He was also the cook on his shift at the firehouse.

Not my Dad's Mac & Cheese

One of the strange things we did and I am not sure how we even started doing this. We liked coffee ice cream but if we didn’t have any we would take my Dad’s instant Santa coffee and add it to vanilla ice cream and cream the two together to make our own coffee ice cream. We also liked vanilla ice cream with a glob of peanut butter.

I still can’t stay I have a favorite dish, I just like food.  Especially chocolate & ice cream.
