    Question Childhood food memories?

    So I'm sitting here introducing DS2 to weetbix with condensed milk and hot water poured on top, thinking about how it is such a strong food memory for me from my childhood which got me wondering, what everyone else's are?

    I also remember at every roast dinner I would trade my brother my roast potato for his roast pumpkin..soo yummy!

    I can remember a dinner we used to get served that i hated but now get cravings for, unfortunately i can't seem to recreate it and have no contact with family to find out the recipe.
    It was potatoes, cabbage, bacon, really nice sausage (teh only part i liked as kid) slow cooked - no idea what it was or what else went into it but i want it again so much.
    Also mussels, smoked fish and dutch licorice are strong/fond childhood foods memories.
    Snip ice creams and bubble o bills too.

    Pineapple rice cream. It was a recipe from a 70's Women's Weekly recipe card set. My mum used to make it and I LOVED it.

    My grandparents who were German and very poor used to make all sorts of delicious, incredibly simple food that I can't recreate. Whenever I try, I just end up with really bland food.

    Eg.
    - Spinach, boiled eggs and potato.
    - Green beans, potato and beef in a broth (also with carrots)
    - fried mince and macaroni. No real sauce at all but so yummy.

    Dutch food! My favourite comfort foods are all from my childhood - Dutch licorice (triple salt, of course) appelflappen, ollieballen (can't wait 'til Oma makes these on NYE) sauerkraut (mashed through spuds) and rookwurst (vege burger for me now) with mustard, bami goreng, nasi goreng (which are Indonesian/Dutch fusion), speculaas sandwiches, kartoffelpuffers with appelmoes, hagelslag, gouda, pumpernickel, anijsmelk, stroopwafels, those little almond cakes (can't recall the name, I'm sure if I went over and asked my Oma she'd have some in the pantry), fries with whole egg mayonnaise ... I always request bami goreng for my birthday dinner. They probably sound made up unless you're Dutch or German
    Basil pesto spaghetti is another one, and my Oma's cooked porridge with butter.

    Making shortbreads and lamingtons with my Granny. She was a great cook and I used to love visiting her and making things and eating my favourite roast chook that she would always make for me!

    I make her recipes now, so am really looking forward to doing that with my kids too.

    Mine is a good old traditional braai with boerewors, pap en sous, and running around while it all cooks chewing on biltong.

    I second everything Berrie said! Stroopwafels are divine!! We grew up living next door to my grandparents (grandma was Dutch and g'pa Indonesian) and we could always smell the cooking from our house! So we'd follow our noses to grandmas house and help ourselves to what she had made! Definitely the best nasi goreng EVER and always with the perfect fried egg on top! Mmmmm luckily grandma passed on her cooking to my mum so we still get to eat it whenever we want. Berrie, always asked for that for my birthday dinners too!! Hehe
    I'm so hungry now!!!!
