Back in the day when The Speck was respectable, and good food. I havent been back since a friend bought a mess of KFC, and shared with a few in our community bldg, and everyone who ate the beans got food poisoning, Along with a semicast iron constitution, I am particular abut my baked beans,didnt give them a second look.

Look at those prices for chicken that was actually delicious and edible. The bucket price had climbed to $6.25 by 1969 when I hopped in with four high schoolmates for a weekend jaunt to Pendleton and one of my mates refused to ante up $1.25 as his share because he thought it was too expensive!

werent the mashed potatoes real potatoes back then, not the instant wallpaper paste ones? My mother used them often, and spackle is very similar.

Jann...My mother tried to slip me some instant potatoes one time, but I immediately recognized the consistency of beach sand and the taste of library paste and called her on it. She continued to claim they were real potatoes, but I won the day when I looked in the garbage pail under the sink. No potato skins.

Instant potatoes are possibly the worst of the ersatz food products.

I am saddened to hear your mother tried that, joel, they can be used as a thickener, r something quick, but they rank near dog food, kibble, on the decent list. Mom wasnt much of a cook, especially after we moved to Portland.
