Hello world! This is my first time blogging so please bear with me!
The title of this is "Reminiscing"...if you glance at my hobbies you will see that one of them is genealogy.
Working in one of the many genealogy sites out there, I started to think about when I was growing up and some of the food that I now miss.
I guess you could call them "Comfort Foods" (though some of them, I couldn't dream of having now!). One of the things that I do regret is that some of these recipes are lost....
Potato Soup....my mother would put in large chunks of bologna (hard to find uncut bologna now), so I would call it "Bologna Soup". (I have found a recipe that comes close, but doesn't use a milk base, and when I can find it I do put bologna in.)
Spam and Fried Potatoes (yes, I know)
Chipped Beef on Toast (my father was a Marine, he liked this for dinner)
Cod Fish Cakes (I HATED them when growing up, now I miss them) this recipe for me now is lost
Fried Bread (my father would fry bread in bacon grease....tasted great, but the SALT!)
Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding (I haven't been able to really do the Yorkshire Pudding quite right yet, ours was more of a flat bread, cooked in the pan the roast had been in, then sliced into pieces)
My mother's chicken soup, vegetable soup, and chili recipes are lost for me, though I come close, they're still not quite "right".
I wish that I had paid more attention to what was going on in the kitchen when I was growing up, but you can't turn back the clock, so now all I can do is reminisce!
Thanks for letting me share some of what I miss!
What about you? What "Comfort" foods do YOU miss?
