Other items found in our house circa 1985

I'm not going to deny what my brother wrote earlier. It was all true. The Diet Coke, the Soda Milk, the People Magazine. If Doc Brown showed up with the Delorean and offered to bring you back to our childhood home, you'd find that those were all pretty typical items at the crib on Walnut Hill.

Here are some of my favorites from back in the day:

Five Alive- you don't see this much, but it used to be one of my drink boxes. That and Crantastic.

(Diet) Canfield's Chocolate Fudge Soda- I always thought it was pretty gross, but for some reason there always seemed to be a couple cans in the pantry. Maybe because no one ever wanted to drink it.

Freihofer's Chocolate Chip Cookies- Greatest chocolate chip cookies ever. And sadly, very unavailable South of the Mason Dixon line.
Stouffer's Macaroni and Cheese- Unbelievably good frozen macaroni and cheese. So good, that when The Barefoot Contessa's recipe for Mac 'n Cheese didn't work out as planned at Thanksgiving a couple of years ago, Mom substituted Stouffer's. Everyone loved it (especially me, who knew at bite one what I was eating).

You forgot Mallowmars, Chicken Rondelets, Veal Loaf, Altoids (before they were popular or even available outside of New York)... what else?

Note to self: future blog post on the evolution of Veal Loaf.

Is nothing sacred in this blog? And keep your mitts off Karl Ehmer's Veal Loaf
