Granny Crawley asked me if I knew what happened when Cinderella got to the Prince’s ball?

I said she probably gagged.

Spaghetti and meat balls.

Swanson's Fried Chicken TV dinners! A big treat back in the day. Loved the apple compote dessert.

kfitz said...

mac and cheese and dino nuggets lol or any kind of pasta

Vita said...

Great to have you around, Candy!😂

My birthday meal request was always my mom's recipe for bbq ribs.

Moose said...

@Nutty_Flavor - Swanson's Salisbury Steak was mine, with their mashed potatoes and peach cobbler. It wasn't until much later in life that the high life I thought I was living eating salisbury steak was just a fancy word for hamburger smeared with gravy.

pork chops and applesauce

Pizza, always the best.

Or cupcakes, the breakfast of champions.

My Granny's chicken and dumplings, pickled beets that I helped can, and raisin pie for dessert. It was the "go-to" meal at the end of winter when everything else in the pantry was pretty much gone and spring planting was getting ready to happen. Felt good to have it in my tummy knowing that I helped Granny and Grandpa even if I mostly just got in the way. I would certainly give almost anything to have her cook that meal for me today. *sigh*

my german grandmother's potato pancakes.

Gator said...

Ha! Swanson's Fried Chicken in the metal trays...nostalgia.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Moose, I do remember the Salisbury Steak! That was a good backup for the fried chicken, from my point of view.

Saw an episode of the 1970s era Bob Newhart Show and his wife was cooking him "swiss steak" . That was just hamburger with tomato sauce on top of it, wasn't it?

The Swanson mashed potatoes were indeed very good.

Guesser said...

Spagetti, I went through a time period I wouldn't eat anything else. The Swanson TV dinners haven't been the same since they were in foil trays. Turkey with dressing,and whatever one had the brownie,I would eat whatever else was with it.

Krab said...

Pizza. I grew up in New York so it was good, not Pizza Hut garbage.

Moose said...

@Nutty - I think Swiss steak was a different cheap cut (maybe top round), pounded flat with a kitchen mallet, then cooked with tomato sauce and American cheese on top. Another cheap meal given a fancy name, and we were none the wiser.

@Guesser - I haven't had one in so many years, I didn't even know they replaced the tin trays (which makes sense, I guess, in an era of microwaves). And the turkey was another classic - I think it came with succotash (mixed peas/beans and carrots)

Meatloaf

Todd said...

My mother's homemade chicken and dumplings.

Ann said...

Grilled cheese sandwich. +1 Nutty and Moose. Loved to pick out those dinners and I always chose based on the desserts. That apple compote one was the bomb.

Guesser said...

@Moose is right,Swiss steak you pound the cheap steak and cook in a lot of onions with the tomatoes tenderising the meat.

Do Tell said...

I dunno about dinner, but I took pb&j to school every day for years and years.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

Franco-American SpaghettiO's with Meatballs.

Or, probably just pizza.

Or maybe Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with a can of tuna added.

Or possibly pot roast.
