    Usually freshly baked white bread loaf from the bakery, Anchor butter, fresh tomatoes from the backyard, sprinkle of salt with hot hot Chai. Pre-teen holiday breakfast and snack. If the avocado trees were ready @ripened fruit, we would add that too. Bread was never toasted. Nor cheese added. No broiler was used.

    Fire roasted ripened breadfruit and its toasty earthy seeds. My maternal grandfather would treat us to his roasts on his breadfruit farm or from his 6 trees he brought via seedlings when he moved to the City when he bought his home near the University in 1970 when my mum was accepted as one of the pioneer students, because we were always so good at guarding the trees saved for export harvests and not for subsistence uses, with our sling shots, keeping those pesky fruit bats away. I preferred it over chocolate or ice cream or Indian shaved ice.

    My maternal grandfather always planted sugarcane in his city backyard lot. Pre tropical cyclones or hurricanes, the temperatures are excessively hot. This was usually when we would trim the bush and slice off the sugarcane. You would then use your teeth to peel off the outer layer of barky waxy skin. You need to bite chunks off, then chew through extracting juices into your mouth, discarding the cordages and intermittent hard inedible stumps.

    Girl you just gave me major nostalgia.

    Government cheese. Lots of my siblings turned up their noses at it, which meant more for me! I loved grilled cheese made with that cheese and pickles (usually homemade pickles).

    My dad's homemade root beer - made with real cane sugar, I bet.

    Snack cakes have always been my kryptonite - they are the one food I never eat now - but I remember the original Drake brand (before the name was sold to someone else) as being some of the best and whoever made the Banana Flip was a genius.

    Fresh peas, pods included, from my grandmother's garden. I would eat any vegetable straight from the garden if no one stopped me, but her peas we're magic.

    Blackberries picked while out roaming - so good!

    Tuna spaghetti with green olives! My favorite of my mom's meals.

    I don't actually like those Trolli peach gummi candies but OMG the Haribo ones...such a favorite. In junior high school, my friends and I would get dropped off at the mall on Friday nights and buy them in bulk and have them for dinner. We spent the food money our parents gave us on cassettes and cds.

    My friends and I would buy gummy strawberries from the mall (candy store bins like Dylan's Candy Bar), rent a video and eat them whilst viewing on Overnight weekends. We weren't really into popcorn - strange, as we would buy it if we were at the movies. It's filling, as I remember them... Real food was rarely on the menu of edibles on those movie nights.

    * Or listening to dubbed cassette tapes from boys and playing with my friend's rabbits and token guinea pig.
    * CD's. .. What a Godsend those were at the time.

    That reminds me of these...
