Nostalgic crap food

Post by Artful Drunktective »

I thought about this thread recently when I was thinking back on all the crap food I ate as a youth, most of which I liked and still like. Cup o' Noodles for example. It went from being crap food from youth to drunkard delicacies for adults.

I ate all the Chef Boyardee of course. Spaghettios and Chicken n' Stars soup. But I grew up on the cusp where there really wasn't any such things as chicken nuggets that the children of today seemingly live off of. McDonald's didn't even have McNuggets until like, the early 80's. So in my tragic youth I ate a lot of fish sticks and tartar sauce. At one point, I even remember battered "fish balls" (no, not the testicular kind) and for the life of me, I can't find proof of their existence (and probably for good reason). Please tell me one of you drunkards know what I'm talkin' about.

Then there were Saturdays where Mom was at work so Dad had to feed us lunch and if it wasn't a grilled cheese, it was religiously a Swanson's frozen dinner, which my brother and I happily ate without complaint. He always had the Salisbury steak and I, the fish n' chips. (You'd think I would have picked something other than fish but whatever that's beside the point).

I pretty much liked it all but I DESPISED this potted meat. My mom would just smear it on a piece of white bread and handed it over. It was up there on the list of non-triumphant things like her telling me to go outside and "run through the sprinklers". As if that was ever effing fun. I realize now that it was her way to get me and my brother out of the house for a few hours...probably so she could smoke a doob or something.

So what crap foods from your youth do you have fond memories of? Do you still eat it?

Potted meat, but not Spam® Ayuh

But if you had some boiled eggs and cut them in half, and mixed the dry yolks with Hellman's and that potted meat...

^ ^ ^ I will tear up some SPAM®. Especially pan fried in a teriyaki glaze. It will never disappoint!

You know, there should be a Modern Drunkard's recipe booklet. Laminated of course.

Artfully Detected Recipes handy guide?

You could also call it Arty's Booze Infused Homestyle Favorites.
As much food stuff I have been posting lately, these are awesome ideas. I should be the next drunken Martha Stewart. Great ideas, guys!

I liked this as a kid. Wouldn't turn it down as a drunk munchie either.

This was "Mexican food" for me until I was about 10 years old, that and the occasional Patio beef burrito when we finally got a microwave oven.

Never had food dropped from the gods above/ upstairs neighbors dropping food from their balcony onto my patio.

No patio.

We were so poor, we just had squirrels winging acorns at our eyes while we slept. We'd collect those up to make pucker stew.

Zwiebel rings are tasty. Can you find a place that makes a zwiebelblum?

Zwiebels wobble but they don't fall down.
I like zwiebels.

Zwiebels are fine with me.

Those zweibels were most heinous actually. Pretty sure there were no onion product involved but some kind of cat food. I don't think the Doitchland can even comprehend the glory of zwiebelblum but I could tear up some Awesome Blossoms. Mmmm.

With a good aerioli sauce. Yummers.

Do they sell Fry-Daddys over there?

Good question but Oett does have a deep fryer. I think we have used it solely for pommes frites.

Looking back now at my TV dinner eating youth...I wonder what I would have thought of this? Pretty sure I would have hated it.
