i just had a fond memory of when i was a kid and would eat butter. you know, just butter. and jello mix out of the box. as i got older i enjoyed eating half a head of lettuce. i'd just tear pieces off til i was full.

what crazy stuff did you eat when you were a kid? i mean not on purpose to be gross, but just because you liked it?

I ate jello out of the box, too! And raw pasta, especially spaghetti. Raw hot dogs, and salami with cream cheese rolled up inside. I still love raw turnips with blue cheese dressing...

Oh yes, raw spaghetti - it was a challenge to see how long I could nurse it and get it soggy in my mouth before I crunched it!

Sometimes, my mom would make me homemade play-doh. It was pretty much just flour and water and salt. Mm, salty.

jars upon jars of pickle

I do that now! With olives. Mm, salty.

What is up with kids eating powder? I used to be obsessed with sneaking spoonfuls of powdered coffee creamer when I was a kid.
Granted, I still eat Swiss Miss powder on top of ice cream. It's like a ghetto version of a malted.

That, and I loved cream cheese and jelly sandwiches. They aren't bad, but for some reason that one seems to gross people out whenever I tell them. My favorite dish when I was a teenage vegetarian was a big plate of egg noodles topped with cottage cheese, salt, and sunflower seeds. The very idea makes me queasy today.

Well, I still eat it sometimes...corn dogs dipped in Miracle Whip.

I was that picky eater. The only things I would eat were fried chicken and spaghetti. I hated pizza!! My mom would cut the crusts off sandwiches for me.

Rice sandwiches, actually. Cooked white rice, between slices of plain white bread. Which made no sense as it's empty starch in empty starch, y'know? but for some reason, I liked it a lot.
Feb. 1st, 2005 03:41 pm (UTC)
mmmmm empty starch. basically if you put butter on that, I would be happy to share one with you.

i used to eat crystal lite mix straight outta the little jar. also, uncooked ramen (just the noodles, not the broth packet).

oh, and my brother and i both used to put potato chips on our PBJs. i have a memory of also occasionally dipping my PBJs in kool-aid...

my brother, however, tops all. he used to take mint chocolate chip ice cream and mix in PB & jelly. i seem to recall he'd even occasionally throw in a slice of bread, but that could be my brain making stuff up.

Oooooh! I was a BIG fan of potato chips on any burger or sandwich. That was the best! I can remember eating sandwiches consisting of nothing but mustard, ruffles and white bread. Mmmm, food of the gods.

This is funny, because I was about to post something like this, only asking what peoples' secret weird snacks are. I'll probably still post that one. It's fun.

My brother and sister and I were often left to our own devices during the weekends, so we got up to all sorts of trouble in the kitchen, attempting to invent new food. I suspect that this is why I'm such a good improvisational cook, these days. But, at the time, we had a lot of, um, misadventures. My favorite was the time I tried to convince my little brother that no, a glob of mayonnaise with a slice of American cheese over it nuked in the microwave for one minute will NOT be tasty. Years later, after he grew up, he admitted to me that I was right.

Ketchup sandwiches when we were more broke. I grew to enjoy them.

When times were better, my sister discovered the joy of putting a slice of cheese in a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. I grew to enjoy this also.

Again during the poor periods, we used to ration the powdered cheese from Mac & Cheese and use the rest of it on popcorn later on. Popcorn was a meal sometimes.

Being broke is fun and necessity is the mother of invention.

I swear I was not trying to make light of being poor.

That said, sometimes popcorn is a meal for me now, but that's mostly because I am rife with unhealthiness.

I did the butter thing too, lovely!

Ummm...-ponders- Marmite, outta the jar...and oxo cubes. Cold, set custard. Jelly before it's been mixed with hot water, aye. Campbells condensed soups without adding water. Fresh raw veggies n fruit nabbed outta the garden. Cake mix, before it'd been baked - scraping the bowl out was the best bit!!!!! Oh, and coffeemate, from the jar. My mamma bought me a whole big jar of coffeemate for my 13th birthday, and I ate the lot in a day (boy was I sick, lol).

I had a friend who used to eat raw sausages and bacon. Bit grim.

Bread with butter and sugar.

My brother used to love raw hot dogs.

Hmm, I can't think of anything too weird, but I'm sure my mom could.

little blobs of margarine rolled in sugar
molasses from the jar
potato chip and margarine sandwiches (ok - I still occasionally eat this)

Worst mistake - thinking that the foil wrapped bouillon cubes must be candy.
Feb. 1st, 2005 03:45 pm (UTC)
boullion cubes... i think my mentality at the time was that anything that compact and wrapped in foil HAD to be good, salty or no. mmmm salty.
Feb. 1st, 2005 12:52 pm (UTC)
I used to eat sugar by the spoonfuls. Or if white bread was available I would make a sugar sandwich. I'd squish all the sides together so that it was like in a pocket while I ate it.
Feb. 1st, 2005 03:45 pm (UTC)
ooooh that reminds me!! i loved to make wonder bread balls by tossing the crusts and smoushing the middle into various shapes and then eating it.
