    My grandma made graham cracker/frosting "sandwiches" for us, and hot jello to drink when we were sick. Oh, and cinnamon toast.

    (When I went looking for a image for cinnamon toast, I found it in a recipe site. Who in the kitten needs a recipe for cinnamon toast?!? :laugh:)

    I used to make toast for myself with butter and sugar when i got home from school. It was easy for me to make. Didnt know anyone else liked it!

    Love the recipe site for cinnamon toast! I loved when my Mom made it for us.

    Haha NewLifestyle, what a trip back in time. We should start a whole new thread for all the memories. :) S&H green stamps, and Plaid stamps. :) Oh so many memories. :) But many people gone from back then. :(

    Green stamps? Are those like the grocery store stamps that went in the little booklets to redeem? My Mom made me lick them all to stick in the books, I'm so glad stamps are sticky now, that was pretty gross!

    Lol Yep, I did all the licking and sticking for my mom too. Then Plaid Stamps tried to be a thing, but only a short time.
    I remember the only thing I ever bought with the stamps was a playpen for my firstborn, he turns 39 this yr. :'(

    Yep and the "gifts" we got to redeem were fabulous. We always had a water pad bottles to help our parents and grandparents put the in the little booklets instead of licking them.

    My mom made the yummiest oatmeal for me as a child, she cooked it with milk and molasses and it sat on the stove all day. I can't make anything like her

    What a beautiful memory!

    growing up my dad would always make homemade waffles on Wednesday's before school... one of my favorite combos was chocolate chips with shredded cheddar cheese. Want!

    That stuff'll pull your fillings out. It's no wonder so many of my teeth ended up with cavities; this was way before sealants were available.

    I never tasted sherbet until I got to NZ. Not a favourite. My friends LOVED it and giant sherbet straws too. Drank my first Spider there too - the Coca Cola + ice cream float

    Ya know, it's was and still is super HARD to find a "good" sherbet. I didn't and don't like most sherbets either. The sherbets I LOVED didn't taste thick nor super sweet, but tasted very thin and not that sweet with a wee bit of tartness to it. Most all of the sherbets sold in grocery stores are the kinds of sherbet I didn't/don't like (thick and super sweet with very little if any tartness=NO). The sherbet's I used to love came from certain ice cream parlors and hand-made. I haven't found a terrific sherbet is YEARS!

    Also, I did like coke floats FAR BETTER than root bear floats, but would take a ginger-ale float over them all.

    Never had the opportunity to try quality hand-churned ice cream parlour blends of sherbet. 🍨

    That makes absolute sense to me now. I initially thought sherbet to be overly sweet, tart and chalky. It was often served at their homes, out of store bought containers of sherbet. I could never get excited like my friends for it, often opting for a piece of fruit back then.
