  • My dad made tuna casserole at least every other week (Kraft dinner + tuna). It wasn't bad actually, but not my favorite. Too bad the bones probably would never fly nowadays! I thought they were actually kinda tasty toasted. The skin I have to mash in so I don't notice it, though I enjoy it on fresh salmon.

    • I wish I could get on board with salmon skin, that goes in the bin too; my cat won't touch it either unfortunately. I know it must have great nutrition. I love childhood food reminisces - just looked up kraft dinner My father made steak pies from scratch but didnt really get involved in family meals beyond that, except, he loved carving chicken I think (dead carcass + knifework = man's work )

      • Lol man's work. I'm not sure where exactly Kraft dinner sits on the Traditional Midwest Meal plate. It's more of a northern thing, but it definitely made appearances. Perhaps Mandatory Spoonable Starch? Potatoes and noodles were both fairly common.

        Wow sudden craving for pasta marinara.

        • Real potatoes? We had this bizarre dried processed potato mash, advertised by space dwelling robots in an iconic TV advert. I seem to remember eating it dry, crunchy, salty like popcorn from the packet. I'm getting carried away, maybe should start a food's nostalgia thread somewhere lol.

          Yes to the marinara, bet you can whip up a lovely sauce

              Indeed, it seemed to fill father with such pleasure and pride, that's more than OK by me.

                Nope I had that too! Or at least versions of it. One summer my brother and my frequent lunch was canned beef stew and powdered mash. Or breakfast x2 combo. Or grilled cheese. That may have been it lol.

                I actually made a nostalgic traditional meal thread a while ago. It was super fun.

                      A hot pan or the broiler will do it! You may have to peel it up just a little to get it done fast enough without burning.

                            Right, this got a proper 'WTF' from me. Chip butty? The name alone makes me hurl! (I know, you're thinking fanny pack fanny pack fanny pack.) This is quite a language we share!

                              I know right? I tried to tell about Joanie's recent weird food pictures, and well, I guess it wasn't as funny without the pictures. At least for me lolol.

                              • Skin + food sensitivities update

                                I've been having the occasional bit of dairy and more than a bit of whiskey (with ice). When I eat wheat, I get serious acne within two days, and so far, my skin is pretty clear. No new breakouts, and the last one is healing.

                                This is good because I'm seriously missing cheese lol. I'll probably still not go totally crazy with it and I'll stick to longer ferments. Mmm mmm stinky cheese.

                                And I like my Jameson.

                                TMI update

                                I forgot to take my magnesium yesterday and still had a BM, just later and not as comfortable. Also hopeful, still impatient. I'm very glad to have found something that's so far basically reliable.

                                Food

                                I'm still liking this simple, clean cooking. I'm actually craving just a plain pork roast, juices, and some quick sautéed cabbage in bacon. Maybe some roasted potatoes. I NEED A KITCHEN.

                                I'm also still avoiding crucifers, so maybe green beans instead.

                                I really loved the fishcakes I made. I'll certainly be doing that again. And a good slow cooked piece of meat (I got brave and made tongue! CAFO, but more friendly than the totally uncleaned six+ pound monsters at the market). I've got to figure out some good warm weather stews maybe... I'll have to maybe hope the stove holds out and spend some time with my cookbooks.

                                And fresh fish. OMG I can't wait for America and fresh fish again. Simple and smooth and flaky and buttery. Mmm.
