Does anyone remember Cold Duck and then there was that cheap strawberry wine that all of us drank when we weren't supposed to!
Oh do I remember Cold Duck. There is a wine out now, that really isn't bad, but I think of Cold Duck when I see it. It is called Lucky Duck, but it isn't that fruity kind.

although, i have to say, with the most recent studies saying meat isnt as bad as they pegged it to be (fresh meats)
im encouraged to see more younger folks on a high protein , low carb diet- similar to atkins years ago, but not as strict.
and i think when the younger generation are finally on their own,,they are eating what they like,,,,and im also seeing young women step up and ask for fresh steaks,,, young girls, for a couple decades were the ewww & ick crowd, proudly saying they dont eat meat- maybe this is rebellion,,

when the nutritional nellies have targeted such a wide variety of foods that will kill you,,,alot of folks throw up their hands and say., i may as well eat what i enjoy,,it sounds like everything is going to kill us..

also, two new employees, where i work said this last week-they work in a grocery store

omg, i never knew there was sooooo much good food , i see something new everyday i want to try!!
"my family was so strict on what we ate" and they moralised/preached so much, that now that im on my own, i want to try all these things i couldnt have, and one of these foods is meats, omg i had a cheeseburger last night that was one of the best things i ever ate" tomorrow night im having a steak"
Yay MBM, I had a nice little steak yesterday, munch on! Yep, low carb here since 2010. Show me the meat!

That's basically how they make deli roast beef which is also brined.

Some people are afraid of low temp baking, but it's quite safe as long as you roast it for several hours so that the core temp is 170 or higher.
Oh, I would so do that if I had a deli slicer.....

I always make my pie crusts with lard, though, and wouldn't buy Crisco on a bet. Yuck. So I have no dog in this fight.
Em please send pie!

bugles, is one of them items i cant buy, id eat the whole bag,,,,like corn chips,,
corn chips had such a strong flavor/smell like doritos, as teenagers we'd always come home smelling like one or the other ,,,if we had any substances, we shouldnt have had..

bazooka joe gum,,,havent had this in yrs,,,but was around since i can remember

One thing I won't miss is TV dinners baked in their aluminum containers, and tasting slightly of the metal.

I do remember when Hungry Man Dinners contained enough food to feed a hungry man, as long as he wasn't too big ..... now they have about half the amount.

I made real apple pies in my Easy Bake oven. Made the crust, put in the apples, sugar, tiny, tiny apple pieces and cooked the thing. I remember it being good, too. It was a green oven and the girl down the street lent it to me to "cook" on it. Wow, why certain memories remain w/ us is a weird thing! Probably around 66-67' time period.
