  • Tragic CW and SAD Recipes

    Per the idea of Cierra, I wanted to start this topic to celebrate the SAD and CW foods and meals that make us happy that we eat mainly meats, fruits and vegetables and have more than one excuse to get us out of eating Aunt Sally's Macaroni Salad with sweetened condensed milk or our mother's cake made with diet coke and boxed cake mix. So when you see something that makes your teeth hurt, churns your stomach or makes you roll your eyes, bring it to use. Added bonus if you can Primalize it.

    I'm going to get this started with the time I veganized Chicken Paprika. That's primal if you eat dairy- rich chicken, sour cream..... mmmmmm......

    But my tragic version included drained tofu browned in canola oil, a sauce of soy milk, soy margarine and flour (plus tomato paste and paprika), lovingly plopped on pasta. I feel like I need to call the guests I served that to and apologize, except they brought an eclair cake made with graham crackers, chocolate icing from a tub, instant pudding and cool whip for dessert. That friendship did not last.

    I used to develop seitan recipes. I was thinking of publishing a book, my recipes were so much better than purchased seitan or other recipes I saw. I ended up finding I was gluten intolerant. Connection? Maybe, maybe not. We'll never know. Tragic? Kind of.

      Now my late ex-mother-in-law used to make lots of really nasty stuff. She actually did it "for me", because I was a "gourmet" and would appreciate things like a dish of unseasoned canned tomato sauce with drained canned mushrooms in it (served cold), or a french bread loaf hollowed out and stuffed with cream cheese, italian dressing mix, and red food coloring, mixed only until still lumpy. I think I'm having flashbacks.

        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.

          Jeffrey Steingarten did that! He wrote the Man Who Ate Everything... an excellent book by the way. But yes, he tried replicating all the old recipes that you found on the back of boxes and he did that one. He said it worked, but he wondered what the point was since apples are better for you anyway. XD

            perfectly timed thread!!!

            I just received a 'share' on my facebook from an acquaintance. Her recipe du jour: Dr. Pepper cake!!

            1 box white cake mix
            1 box instant vanilla pudding mix
            3/4 cup canola oil
            10 oz dr. pepper.....

            then you make a glaze using more of the Dr. pepper and some other stuff.

            I had to pick my jaw up off the floor.

              As a kid, there was something my mother made that we kids (all ominvorous, mind you) lovingly called "That Stuff" as in "Mom's making That Stuff again. Wanna go eat with the neighbors?" It involved canned biscuits, canned deviled chicken, canned mixed veggies, ramen noodles, and canned tomato sauce. It was foul.
              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!"

                    oh my gosh! I am sitting here eating bacon from the farmers market that has to be marked not for human consumption and am so very very thankful for it! I have to admit I can't really think of anything. Not that I ate a lot of good for you stuff but it was still yummy...fried chicken fried in bacon grease with rice and gravy, deep fried corn fritters, all very very yummy and would now make me very sick Well...maybe I could coat the chicken w/ almond flour...hmmmmm

                        Oh c'mon, anything made with cake mix, diet soda, diet hot cocoa and fat free cool whip can't be bad for you. It only has !!!11!!1! 5 !!111!!!! weight watchers points, NO FAT, and under 250 calories. Plus, hell once it touches your tongue, you'll regurgitate it anyway.

                        I love Sandra Lee. She is the full fat version of Hungry Girl.

                          My understanding is that this was a traditional recipe, though made with soda crackers and apple cider vinegar for times when apples were not available.

                            I don't have many of my own because before this I rarely cooked.

                            However, there was the time I added canned chicken and sliced yellow squash to Chicken Flavored Raman noodles (to make it healthy!). I feel like I should apologize to the squash.
                            And this isn't mine but when my dad (who is now low-carb and mostly Primal) first started his weightloss journey, he was doing the American Heart Association plan and told me about how he'd developed a chocolate mousse recipe with instant pudding and Fat-Free Cool Whip.

                              I have nothing to contribute to this thread (yet), but that made me laugh. Poor squash.
