She wrote about “the olden days”; her favourite foods and what she ate at each meal and snack as a child. It was so cute and such a fun read that I haven’t stopped thinking about this particular post of hers since she published it on January 16th.
So, I’m going to copy her and finally write my own WIAW post that looks back on my childhood and what I ate when I was young…
Just call me the egg monster. When I was young, it wasn’t unusual for me to eat 7 whole eggs in one sitting and you can bet your bottom all of these eggs were dippy eggs, so along with these eggs I would have buttered toast for dipping!
I would usually have a glass of juice along side my breakfast, but my drink of choice was a virgin pina colada slushie, so my Mom would blend these up for me from time to time!
Not much has changed, I’m definitely still an egg monster, but one thing that I do love for breakfasts now that I did not love when I was young is cereal. I refused to eat cereal. I couldn’t handle the soggy-ness and don’t even get me started on oatmeal… I didn’t start loving that until 3 years ago!
It wasn’t until the last couple of years of high school that I stayed at school for lunch. So, throughout elementary school I was lucky enough to come home and have a delicious home cooked meal! Usually, my lunch was Campbell’s tomato soup made with milk and elbow macaroni! This was my all time favourite lunch. I would have it on my first day of school, special days such as Valentines Day, my birthday, and pretty much every single other day…
After School Snack
In elementary school, my favourite snacks were anything my Mom made me Her go to’s were:
Gus and Jack Cheese
Cheddar cheese cubed up just like how Gus and Jack from Cinderella ate their cheese!
Jam and Cracker Sandwiches
Soda crackers and raspberry jam smacked together to make a “sandwich!”
Celery and Cheeze Whiz
Celery sticks laced with Cheeze Whiz
But, as I got older, an Iced Cappuccino from Tim Horton’s was essential after a day of classes.
My Mom had one waiting for me every day after school.
Dinner was always something different. My family thrives off of variety! But, if I had my choice for dinner I would have requested “Scoobi Doo noodles” with my Mom’s homemade creamy tomato sauce.
I was first introduced to these fun Scoobi Doo noodles at Boston Pizza, but my Mom made everything better, so I often had “Boston Pizza inspired” meals at home (Boston Pizza was my favourite restaurant as a child if you haven’t caught on)
My family has never been much of a “dessert” family. My Mom baked, but we’d never have dessert after dinner. I did have bedtime snacks, though! My favourite snacks to have before bed were:
Folded Jam Sandwiches and a Glass of Milk
A fluffy piece of white bread, raspberry jam, and an icy cold glass of milk was my favourite snack to have before bed!
If we didn’t have a jar of my Grandma’s homemade dill pickles on hand, these were the next best thing! I’d always want pickles while lying in bed.
As you can see, I was very much of an egg and macaroni monster. I remember telling my Mom that my perfect day would include “lying in bed all day eating Kraft Dinner and watching movies.”
I hope you enjoyed today’s flashback post and were able to reflect back to your childhood, too! I think that’s always a fun thing to do…
What was your favourite food as a child?
Were you a picky eater when you were young?
I’ve never been a picky eater. My motto is “you won’t know until you try!”
