I was talking to my husband about things people used to eat, but you rarely hear of anymore.
We have become quite picky. Most of these "strange," abandoned items were protein sources. Once upon a time, it was not as plentiful. And sweets were rarer, too.
Do you remember foods that were once common but are now avoided?
Some things have simply "gone out of fashion," I believe.
I am thinking of:
Pate [Circa 1960s chic]
Caviar [See above]
Brains [I could use some, but no]
Pigs' Feet [Faints]
Candied Figs [I love them still but eating the lil' bit of stem is disturbing]
Dates [They look like candied roaches to me]
Souffles [I remember a whipping for letting the front door slam]
MoussesPoached Eggs [Queasy just thinking of it]
Pickled Eggs [floating eeriely in a giant jar of murky vinegar]
This gal, like me, watches her weight. Watches it go up, that is. Bet I'd lose weight on a diet of pigs' feet and candied dates.
