    12 (15 oz) cans mexican style chili beans

    As a Texan, this offends me.

    Also, grain free or not, Frito Pie is awesome.

      Ditto. Fritos are probably one of the least offensive of the chip world for me, so I indulge every once in a blue moon.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        I'm not Texan and even I'm offended by beans in chilli.
        Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

          I just hurt my brain trying to make sense out of the 'under the sea' salad.

          Why is it considered 'under the sea'? I was expecting some sort of seafood involved, but no. Is it because it is (mildly) green from the lime jello? Why would someone mix pineapple with olives and serve it to a fellow human being? If you gave that to the family dog he would look at you, growl, and then go chew up your favorite shoes. He might also piss on your pillow to make sure you got the message.

          I am going to have to stop now or I might stroke out thinking about that. And for heaven's sake, that poor defenseless lettuce leaf....

            Cooking has changed a lot in the past century, as has the meaning of the word "salad". I have a large cookbook from the 50s that an entire section of nasty jello salad crap like that.

              Out of some sense of Catholicism, my mother made almost the same meal every Friday: salmon patties and Tator Tots. I hated those tots. Started calling them Potato Poopies. Asked pretty please if she'd stop serving them. So, then we had the salmon patties on English Muffins. Okay, not totally gross, just not very nutritious.

              I think I've finally gotten my last issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray - it was a gag gift. And gag I do as I search for things I can primalize. This month, she took a perfectly good frittata recipe, and threw in a cup and a half of Fritos.

              Another lovely article this month was taking three different types of girl scout cookies, and just by crumbling them and adding lots of cream (good) and sugar (bad), come up with three lovely desserts: Thin Mint Cookies & Cream Pie, Apple Crisp (you even add apples!), and Peanut Butter Patty Parfait.

                  My go to stress relief used to be fritos and french onion dip. Periodically I want that but when I really consider it I know they just will not taste as good as I remember.

                    used to make this pudding out of the really soft kind of tofu mixed with melted chocolate bars and splenda. I thought I was being all heathy because I was using 72% chocolate and the whole thing was so low in fat.
                    I used to buy a mix that you could mix in with the "Silken Tofu". It was kind of chalky IIRC.

                    I also confess to serving guests a home made Tofurkey. It had ground tofu, agar, chikenless broth flavor and about 657 other ingredients. It took like 6 hours to assemble. It reminded me of those Land O lakes turkey rolls my mom used to make that kind of had the texture of ground up turkey that might have had some feathers still in it. I loved those. My mom would make butternut squash with a stick of margarine and a cup of brown sugar as a side dish for it.

                      Growing up in California with a European mother I never knew that Jello could be considered a "salad" until I visited the Midwest. It was on this same trip that I saw sugar being spooned on top of spaghetti like you would Parmesan. It was an eye opening experience.

                        Oh, but the feathers are the best part. Everybody needs their fiber!

                          So, I made that Dr. Pepper cake with some heritage Dr. Pepper and vanilla extract with gelatin and I have to say it blew my mind. Lived up to expectations and then some. Thanks guy for posting that.

                            Any Mexican food made post low-fat movement. My Nana now makes re-fried beans with skim-milk cheese, canola oil instead of lard, and with bits of soy "chorizo". Gotta say, doesn't taste bad but when you know whats in it- yuck. They often put these beans on white bread for breakfast and its "healthy". Tortillas made with hydrogenated vegetable oil, again instead of lard, with battered fish (soda cracker crumbs and egg whites for the batter) that was deep fried in canola oil to make fish tacos. Its served with Spanish (canola oil) fried rice, and the previously mentioned "healthy" re-fried beans. Its sad because despite all their effort, trying to be healthier and all, they are all of course as overweight and unhealthy as ever. I don't think I could sell them primal though, unfortunately. They would have to change everything.

                              I'm glad this isn't just me. I grew up with one Southern and one European parent (who has an affinity for spicy food) and eating at the houses of friends who had moved from the Midwest was always such a disgusting experience. Even the desserts weren't good because they had no flavor besides sugar.
                              Not that Southern food is that much better healthwise, the thing about everything being breaded is true, but at least some of it tastes good.

                                How about the "apple" pie made with plain ritz crackers?? And no apples:O So pie crust (grains) with crackers (grains) and some spices. Yumm It actually kind of tasted good at the time.
                                I've actually incorporated this recipe into a chemistry lesson-plan before, it's really interesting. The tart apple taste comes from cream of tartar, which goes through a chemical reaction during the cooking to make the taste. The crackers are just to give it a thickness.

                                What I've heard is this recipe became popular in like the 30s or 40s when apple distribution was sparse/apples were expensive because of the depression/war effort, or that it was a replacement recipe for when apples werent in season.

                                Also, just re: the whole jello salad thing, I grew up in California and my family makes jello salads, and I still have a strange fondness for them. Granted we usually only had/have them in "salad" form as a palette cleanser between courses during Thanksgiving or other special occasion dinners, and its a small serving. If one was to make an entire dish of the stuff and bring it for a potluck or something then we'd consider it a dessert.

                                Also, before all the fake sweeteners and artificial dyes and BS, the whole idea of the fruity jello salad was an evolution of meat-based aspics like headcheese and such, which are highly paleo.
