    BLT's were so great, but I don't eat pork any more.
    My mom's cabbage rolls. Still the best I've ever eaten.
    Yea, borscht and perogies.
    Sauerkraut and weiners, sausages.
    Raw peas -- nothing tastes fresher than that.
    Field strawberries.
    Home-made lemonade in a jar.
    Bologna sandwiches, fried bologna -- ewww.
    Frozen fish 'n' chips.
    FISHSTICKS!!!! I still crave those sometimes with French fries and peas.
    Creamed corn.
    Scalloped potatoes and ham with brown sugar, pineapple rings and cloves.
    Fruit cocktail.
    My aunt Muriel made the best lemon meringue pie and banana cream pies, sometimes with coconut.
    Lefse (Norweigian specialty).
    Spaghetti was considered exotic when I was growing up.
    Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy and peas/carrots (the frozen kind was what us kids liked.)

    Still make ants on a log for my boys. We use peanut butter instead of the cheese whiz.

    We also ate fire pies. White bread filled with pie filling and cooked in a cast iron toast-tite mold.
    Drive a car, drive a boat, drive a plane. What does it matter? As long as I'm drunk!

    I still eat celery and cheese, but the cheese is a little higher class now.

    Pigs feet cooked in sauerkraut served with mustard
    Headcheese
    Cooked macaroni served in hot milk with a little bit of butter
    Freshly cooked spaghetti (still hot) with raw egg mixed in until it solidified, with tomatoes stirred in.

    We ate a lot of Shepard's Pie (mashed potatoes, ground hamburger meat, and corn), as well as chicken pot pies and ants on a log (with pb, not cheese).

    Around her people eat muskrat. In the winter churches etc have muskrat & roast beef dinners. I get the beef, although I did taste the muskrat it wasn't for me. It doesn't smell to good and looks like a rat. White Castle hamburgers, are they around the country, world now?

    White bread with a thick layer of butter and sprinkled with sugar.

    PB&J sandwiches dipped in chocolate milk.

    Ants on a log were peanut butter for me as well.

    Some of these sound so good--combinations I never would have thought.

    I can't think of anything regional. Growing up in L.A. at a time when most of the rest of the country didn't know what Mexican food was (except for Texas of course! ), we ate a lot of Mexican food. My brother went away to college in Illinois and they had a "taco party" where everyone got introduced to tacos and burritos, they'd never seen one in their lives. Funny.

    I really envy the south with all their special foods and dishes, though I cannot say I would EVER eat a crawfish or a crawdaddy or whatever the hell

    The most horrible food ever.I would NEVER eat it~~..SOUSE!! http://www.macampbell.f2s.com/recipes/Souse.htm

    Originally it was made entirely from the meaty parts of the head of a pig or calf, but now can include edible parts of the feet, tongue, and heart. The head is cleaned and simmered until the meat falls from the bones, and the liquid is a concentrated gelatinous broth. Strained, the meat is removed from the head, chopped, seasoned and returned to the broth and the whole placed in a mold and chilled until set, so it can be sliced.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    ^^^That's what headcheese is. My parents used to make it about once per year from a pig's head (usually for Christmas).

    mmmmm headcheese
