Food Memories

Posted on August 26th, 2010 by Clinically Clueless
For most, certain foods make us think of childhood.  It could be the aroma of Mom’s apple pie, stew, soup, spaghetti sauce, eating ice cream or gummy bears.  It could even be just hearing or seeing the name of a dish or making a dish.
I thought of several food items when writing this post.  One is just the thought, look of the blue box and eating Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.  We used to have it for dinner with ground beef added…cooked of course.  Also, my friend and I used to make it.  We also filled tortilla with canned corned beef and hash and melt cheese on a tortilla on a gas stove…yummy.  Anything that is non-traditional in a grilled or tortillas heated with a flame makes me happy.  I also used to roast marshmallows from a gas stove or the heat from our electric stove…pretty innovative for a young teenager.
Apple pie reminds me of childhood as my grandfather LOVED apple pie with vanilla ice cream…it had to be vanilla!!  The aroma of fried fish or sometimes the crinkling of newspaper reminds me of my Grandmother as she would cover the ENTIRE kitchen with newspaper to absorb any oil that would escape from the pan!!
My favorite food memory is when I made a lemon meringue pie as a young teenager.  Well, making the crust and lemon filling was easy with no difficulties. Then, it came for the meringue.  Well, I lost control of the mixer and meringue went flying everywhere even the ceiling.  I cleaned it up so as not to get into trouble and made another one and didn’t have any spectacular mishaps. For several months, I could see where I missed cleaning the meringue.
So what foods or memories remind you of childhood?  Also, share your stories of why they remind you of childhood.
