@proudlyfromNJ  How is this served? With what? And is it still around? Is it just whole wheat type bread, or cakeish? I want to try this! 😆 


 

I've had this a few times as a kid.  Every Saturday supper was beans, usually with hot dogs.  I remember this being tasty, more like a gingerbread texture and had raisins and molasses.  My mother served it warmed with melted butter on it.  Think I'm gonnas look for it when groery shopping!

This iaps a once a year treat, because it is full of salt, but I find Campbell's chicken noodle soup very comforting. I buy the 25% less salt version, but it is still way too much. I just love the broth.

@KBEANS   I believe the canned brown bread shown, which is the typical New England brand used, has molasses in it.

 

Often served on Saturday nights (for some reason, don't know why) with hot dogs--no buns--on a plate, along with a can of Boston brand baked beans.

 

My mother-in-law-to-be, who herself admitted she was NOT a good cook, served it EVERY Saturday to the point that my fiance and I found excuses to go out to eat on those nights, or would volunteer to cook, instead.

Every day I see this question,  I want to write red licorice.  But I don't eat it now.  I'd like to though.  Don't want the sugar.

Ahhh, a favorite of mine, I'm not sure so much, in actual childhood, but, as a very young adult .

 

First time out on your own, a definite budget😋

I remember, a guy I dated, casually, making it with hamburger and corn.  He also made sloppy joe sauce,  top it with shredded cheese, bake, 
with biscuits on top. Hamburger  stew, hamburger, with diced potatoes, and assorted fresh veggies, then he stirred in a couple of cans of cream of chicken soup, a

couple cans, of whole milk, and 🥰

 

I remember him, so well, because, after he married, he and his wife, moved to a small town, opened a "comfort food", kind of restaurant, and did extremely well with it.  I visited a couple of times. 

When they decided to have kids, the restaurant, was too time demanding, and they moved on, but, it was a cool little place! 

Boy, did I ramble and digress 🤨
