    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.
