Food of your childhood?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Any foods bring back fond memories for you?
Mine is Chip Butties. I remember being about 4 or 5, and I lived most of the time with my dad up in Nottingham. Me and one of my friends, who must of been about 8 at the time, used to go down to The Cob Shop at the end of my dads street. We always got chip butties, and used to sit on the wall outside and eat them.
I had one just now and it made me think, even the smell of them makes me smile still :)

    Whiting with peas and boiled potatos and tomato ketchup.
    When I became vegetarian a few years ago, I stopped eating fish too, but the other day, I was a bit down, so my mum made me some. And then I wouldn't eat it, and I got ridiculously upset about the fact I couldn't eat the whiting my mother had made especially for me.:(

    You shouldn't be upset about that love, you are just sticking to your views. I'm vegan, and I miss the butter in a chip buttie... but I wont eat the butter. No matter how down I get, at least I can hold on to my views.

    It's not the sticking to my views thing, it was just the thing that cheered me up when I was little only made me more upset now I'm older. And also it was because she did something especially nice, and went out of her way to get it and all that. And I wouldn't eat it.

    Hunny, if my mum gave me a glass of milk I'd throw it in her face! No matter how upset I was. She knows you are veggie, personally I would be very offended if someone knew I was vegan and cooked me meat.
    No offence x

    I had this really old fork. It was tiny and had a matt dark-red handle. I think it belonged to my grandfather. I used to eat bread with butter and honey with that. My mother always spread butter + honey on a bread and cut it into severals squares and small strubbles would eat them with this fork.

    good times.

    Vienetta ice cream (always a treat we had at my grandparents' house)
    Frankfurter sausages, baked beans and potato waffles
    Porridge (:yuck: I hate it now due to being given it for breakfast every Sunday morning for about fifteen years)

    "Pizza toast" - our school canteen used to serve it at break times - basically toast with tomato puree and melted cheese on top, sounds rank but was nice
    Iced buns, also from school - basically a plain hotdog roll (minus sausage obviously) with icing on top of it
    Nut roast reminds me of my one solitary year of being vegetarian aged about 13...

    haha aw that reminded me of when i was little and my mum had ran out of bread to make sandwiches for my pack lunch, so she made me cubes of cheese, cucumber and cherry tomatoes in a tupperware to take for dinner. i didnt know i didnt have sandwiches and when i got it out i was so chuffed, i was showing it off to everyone and i was like the queen of my lunch table. haha! from then on i would beg my mum to make it as a special treat...ahh how easily pleased we are when we're 6.

    Not so much a favourite food, as a memory.

    I used to go to Littlehampton on my own a lot and they had this rather crappy indoor fun fair. But in this fair was a vending. Cost 5p and you got a cup of... chips !

    A few people I live with love this stuff. They went to Tesco a few months ago and asked if they had any. The people I live with were rather disgusted that the staff hadn't heard of it.:lol:

    They were then rather pissed off that I'd gone in there for something and saw they had some in there.:lol:
    Bananas and custard :yum:

    I still love this.
    "Pizza toast" - our school canteen used to serve it at break times - basically toast with tomato puree and melted cheese on top, sounds rank but was nice

    I miss this too. Might have it again next week if I have enough tomato puree left over.

    Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes!! I swear we had practically the same childhood.

    Urm...

    Cheese on toast with Marmite!
    Fish Fingers with Baked beans.
    Chicken Feet. (Yes I know, strange for a child! My parents used to take me to China Town in London for Chinese New Year... and we'd always go for Dim Sum in a Chinese Restaurant. When I was really, really young I used to eat Jam Sandwiches in there...but when I was about 5 or 6, I started eating the Chinese Food...and the first thing that took my fancy was Chicken Feet! I still eat it religiously every time I'm in China Town.)
    Spaghetti hoops on toast.

    I'm sure there's loads more but my mind has gone well blank.

    "Hedgehogs" - mini shepherds pies made by scooping the middle out of a baked potato and filling it with mince, then piling the mash back on top and spiking it up with a fork. My mum used to shape the mash into a little pointy face at one end and make a couple of holes for the eyes.

    Fish fingers were another favourite.
