52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Favorite Food

Week 5: Favorite Food. What was your favorite food from childhood? If it was homemade, who made it? What was in this dish, and why was it your favorite? What is your favorite dish now?

As a child my favorite dish hands down was my grandmother's baked macaroni! Sounds simple, right? It was. I make it and my kids love it too. Simple to make as well. Can be a side dish or a meal in itself. All that it takes to make it is noodles, Velveeta cheese and tomato soup. Oh yes and some parsley! My grandmother only served green dishes! Everything got covered in parsley -- probably where I got my love of parsley from. I also add garlic in mine often.

Now -- my favorite meal is pizza but to actually cook ... probably a tie between the baked macaroni and my lazy lasagna.
I like them because not only do they taste great and the kids like them without any fuss but they are SO simple to make. The picture is of the lazy lasagna. I don't think I have one of the baked macaroni.

  1. Similar to mine, just stewed tomatoes or thick tomato sauce, macaroni and maybe hamburger. I should try the cheese. Mom always ate it on bread? As if the carbs weren't enough!
