Does anyone remember Cold Duck and then there was that cheap strawberry wine that all of us drank when we weren't supposed to!
Boone's Farm was where we got apple wine.
Was the strawberry Orchard Creek?

What I enjoy even now - is Yago Sangria. I buy it by the gallon jug, pour a quart into a pitcher, add brandy, and fresh fruits.

You're right. I checked them out when I went to work yesterday because I got curious.

I remember when you were considered uncivilized to use oil-packed tuna (also the 80s, I believe). I think there was some kind of low fat mania/fat phobia back then I always use tuna in olive oil--it's finally more widely available. The good tuna ventresca has always been in oil. Ever try to make tuna salad with that water-packed crud? You'll never get it to emulsify properly--ever hear of oil & water?



I LOVE chicken thighs...........well, I love all chicken.

Breasts are fine, but very trendy now, the price for breasts is kinda insane.

Sounds good to me!
My dad used to love a late-night snack of potted meat and crackers. I don't think potted meat is available now...or it's called something else.

Boone's Farm Strawberry Wine - my husband's first drunk! Quite the thing in the early 1970s.

Lol--it's still around. We used to eat that years ago, too. I haven't had it in at least 35 years. We also used to eat pickled pigs feet straight from the jar--Mama always kept a jar of those in the fridge.

I remember pretending that I loved pizza beforehand because all the other kids were talking about how they liked pizza from this place or that place, and I realized I was the only girl in the troop who had never tasted pizza. Because I was aware probably by the time I was six that my family was weird, lol, I was already used to pretending to be normal. It worked out just fine. After I ate it, I didn't have to pretend anymore. I loved pizza after that day, and I still do.
My mom made everything from stratch. We did eat out now and then - my dad was in restaurant and country club business. However, I never had pizza either. When I was about 14, my mother made a pizza. It was horrible. Fast forward a couple of years - my first date - football game and then pizza. I was petrified thinking - what am I going to do? I hate pizza. Well, we went to this awesome pizza place in Fort Lauderdale and it was the MOST AMAZING pizza ever. I loved it. Then, I was able to enjoy the evening. LOL. (I told him the story months later - he was a nice first boyfriend to have!)

I still love pizza too!!!

I also remember having a milkman. His name was Mr. Jim, came to house 3 times a week and I think he retired in the 80's. It was Borden. Truly end of an era. Such a nice man too.

The only pizza that we ever had as a young child was that awful Chef Boy-ar-dee "make at home" stuff. There was never quite enough crust or toppings or anything.

By the time we were teenagers, my father got into the game and would buy those cheap $0.69 Tortino pizzas. Those were also pretty bad. However, he agreed that they were bad and would top them with GOOD ingredients and they were better than most of the pizza places locally. Then, he would let us top our own pizzas ... and that would get interesting.

you can still buy boneless breasts for 1.99lb in these parts

and that was the sale price 30 yrs ago for bnls breasts

at regular retail-not on sale, bnls reasts can be high... 3.49lb

the organic breasts,,,are just too much,,,i refuse to pay that much for a breast,,-well,, nevermind..

bone in breasts have gone up a bit- just buy them on sale

What did you guys do all day outside? What was a typical day like in each season? esp. summer & winter

I was born in the 80s so I missed everything but the tail end of this era you all fondly remember... I would love a few different people's takes on this - feel free to pm me if it's too off topic!!
