Tuna casserole. It wasn't often, but it was icky.

The other was milk toast. My Dad was paid monthly on the first day of the month. That day we got the best steaks or crab or something else yummy and extravagant, even abalone.

But by the last day of the month, on some months, there was that dreaded milk toast for dinner.

I think that was only while my Mom was a stay-at-home Mom, though. Eventually her seasonal work turned into full-time. Once it did, we ate better, but I sure missed having her around all the time.

Any dishes with cauliflower, lamb, liver, crabmeat, white or brown onions (I like onions now), strong aroma cheeses.

Green bean casserole with canned green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and dead fried onion rings.

Tuna noodle casserole with canned tuna, pasta, and god knows what.

Lima beans, liver, canned vegetables, canned beef stew. Ewww.

Hamburger helper.

Sloppy Joes.

Jello - lots of sugar and always in strange colors.

Kraft macaroni and cheese from the box.

Any Campbell's canned soup. Any frozen food by Stouffers. HUGE amount of salt!

Potato chips with onion dip made from onion soup mix in a box.

Ice cream that never gets hard in the freezer, no matter how long it stays there, because of all the gum-this and gum-that.

Margarine. It is only one molecule away from plastic.

And never forget canned fruit cocktail where all the little bits of fruits all taste exactly the same.

Once a week we had liver and onions. I never could like it, and in those days you either ate it or did without. My mom would make mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy to go with the liver and onions so my supper one night a week was mashed taters and biscuits and gravy. Which wasn’t too bad as I recall.

Boiled hot dogs with Van Camp's Pork N Beans on the side, along with a slice of white bread. Ugh.

Several school lunch regulars were my most hated foods:

- Steamed or boiled cheap hot dogs and gloppy baked beans.
- Army-green canned peas.
- Sugary-sweet Sloppy Joes on the dissolved white mush known as hamburger buns.
- Barnacle burgers (hamburgers steamed to a tasteless, cardboardy grayness covered with identically gray crater-like growths of unknown content).

I liked most of my mother’s cooking, and luckily she did not make anything resembling the above nastiness.

Liver and canned spinach. Both banned from my house my entire adult life.

Canned peas. Tuna casserole, with canned soup. Tamale pie. Liver and onions. I'm sure there are more that I've blocked out! Mom was not, and still is not, a cook. LOL

Corned beef casserole. My siblings loved it. I couldn't choke it down.

Canned corned beef mixed with cream of chicken soup and egg noodles and baked with a topping of crushed potato chips.
