( BTW, WTF is everbody today, aint NOBODY talkin back at me today )

Everbody has their "feel like a kid again" moment. I was thinkin 'bout this when Molly posted her blog last week about rollin down a hill (which I have done and at -ahem- 40noneofyerbiznessomething, it dont feel that good the next day).

At lunch today, I had a feeling I was 8 years old again.

Now, I have made my chilrens PB&J sammiches now and again. They is in their teens now, so I dont get to make em for em anymore, they makes their own.

So back to it. I was hungered today around noon, so I looks in the pantry to see what we have. I see'd that I done bought a brand new jar of JIF CREAMY fer the chilrens.

Oh. My. GAWD.

And the only thing you can put with a fresh creamy PB sammich is grape jelly.



I wet my panties it were THAT GOOD.

And as I sat there and savored ever last bite, I thought of the things I liked whilst I was growin up back home.

Bomb Pops.
Pepsi Slushes at the Kwik Shop.
Laffy Taffy.
Pizza Rolls with chocolate milk.
Bubs Daddy.
Campbell's ABC Soup.
Happy Joes Taco Pizza.
Lipton's Chicken Noodle Os after swimming lessons.
Hiland Potato Chip and AE Dip.
((oops hee hee now ya'll can figger where I am originally from winkwink))
Ok. I will say it aout loud:
. . . FUNNEL CAKES and FRESH SQUEEZED LEMONADE FROM THE IOWA STATE FAIR.

What do ya'll crave when you (a) think of childhood (b) think of home . . ?

There isn't room enough to list all of my childhood food memories but this week I made a fluffer nutter (peanut butter and marshmallow fluff on white bread). OMG it took me right back to being a kid again. Heavenly!

In the small town where I grew up there was a man who made peanut rounders. This is a candy made of peanuts and something red and sugary. It comes in a round shape and they were so good. I wonder if they still make them. HMMM. Also Dr.Pepper with peanuts in the bottle. And Moonpies with Yahoos to wash it down. And dreamcicles from the ice cream truck! Yummy!
