Oh, food the family ate, back in the day before the pyramid guide and nutrition hysteria.
Here’s a sample of what was:
Curried Lamb-made with the cheap curry found in A&P
Curried chicken with Perdue Chicken before chickens were put on a so-called healthy grain diet
Curried beef-I guess at this point curry put on just about anything
Carolina white rice smothered in Heinz ketchup or was it Heinz ketchup with a dash of rice?
Devil’s Underwood spread on Wonder bread
Chef Boyardee-spaghetti and meatballs or ravioliEgg salad-saturated in mayo- the Hellman’s kind
Uneeda biscuit crushed and placed in a bowl with milk added
Beer with pep milk and sugar- I found this combination quite strange-maybe it’s a Jamaican thing
Olive loaf and spiced ham on Wonder bread, lathered in mayo-the Hellman’s kind
Oxtails in gravy with Lima beans
Pigs feet with white beans in sauce
Scotch bonnet peppers pickled in vinegar
Fried cakes (Johnny cakes) with ketchup
Whole wheat bread lathered with mayonnaise, American cheese and tomatoes
White bread toasted, buttered and sprinkled with sugar
Raisin bread, lathered with mayo-the Hellman’s kind, American cheese and tomatoes
Canned sardines in tomatoes sauce with a side of Carolina white rice
Canned sardines in oil on top of Saltine crackers
Liver, fried and smothered with onions
SPAM slices, fried with eggs over easy
