It is amazing how we ate so many strange things growing up. We came from a not so wealthy family that survived on what we had. My poor grandmother raised my sister and I and we came out just fine! We also had ' noodles and eggs ' and you would eat it with ketchup on it. I still eat it today! Not very fond of fancy stuff, just plain ol' food!!! Glad to know I am not the only one, Penny!!!

Milk`Mac...loved it. Hey, it was filling and much better than going to bed hungry. I grew up in a not so wealthy fam also, way out in the sticks on a farm....no running water in the house and no indoor bathroom. We did have electricy and one heater in the house, it was in the livingroom.

Our Mom would take her iron and set it on the heater until it got hot then she'd iron our sheets (yes, they were on our beds), so we could jump into a warm bed in the freezing winters since there was no heat in any of the bedrooms.
We had a well right out the kitchen door in the back....and the outhouse was way out close to the barn.

We'd also have "Milk & Rice Cereal"...was made with the leftover rice. We'd warm some milk up in a saucepan with a pat of butter and pour over the leftover rice.
And if we had leftover cornbread we'd do the same with it..."Cornbread Cereal".
My Grandmother would eat "Coffee Soup"......she'd warm some milk & leftover coffee in a saucepan with a pat of butter, when heated then pour into a soup bowl and dunk leftover toast into it.

aaawwwwwwww, memories.
