Oddly enough I remember mostly the things I did not like. One being this carrot salad that was a constant on my cafeteria tray. I like it now.



2/3 cup raisins
2 cups coarsely grated carrots
1 cup crushed pineapple , drained
1/3 cup mayonnaise-type salad dressing
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Directions:
1Toss raisins, carrots, and pineapple together lightly; set aside.2Stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and sugar and add to the raisin mixture.3Refrigerate until served.

Thanks for getting the thread up, Nicole! Not sure how I let it slip my mind.

I made some meatballs. Italian has always been a favorite growing up and when I'd get to pick where to go for something special, it was always italian.

Here is the recipe I used... Marvelous Meatballs! | Everyday Paleo

This was difficult because I already make most of childhood favorites. One food I hadn't had in a LONG time though (and certainly had never made) was Burritos. As a kid, I only ever got them if I requested that we go to my Uncle's house for them.



I did like these. The enchilada sauce in the recipe didn't seem to make much of a difference to me.

Caefteria style spaghetti



Canned sauce
noodles
ground meat
cheddar cheese

Cook the noodles directly in the sauce, and add cheddar cheese I used a measuring cup to get that perfect rounded cafeteria look.

Chris's dish:

I really didn't like chili growing up. I've since developed a taste for it, but I don't think I've ever made it myself before. So here goes. I looked at a few recipes and decided to wing it using them only as a rough guide. This is what I went with:

1 tsp Molasses
1/2 tsp Ground Oregano
1/8 tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper
1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Ground Cumin
3 Tbls Chili Powder
1 28 oz. can Crushed Tomatoes in Thick Puree
1 15 oz. can Tomato Sauce
2 15.5 oz. cans Dark Red Kidney Beans, drained
1 lbs. Ground Deer
5 oz. Deer Tenderloin, diced
1 large Red Onion, diced
Shredded Cheddar as garnish

In a large sauce pan, I mixed the cans of tomato and all the seasonings. In a large skillet, I cooked the onion, deer burger, and deer tenderloin (one at a time) and added each to the sauce pan as they were done. I simmered for about 1 1/2 hours and served with shredded cheddar cheese on top. I think it would have needed more water to simmer longer.

It came out pretty well. Spicier than I generally prefer, but that's easily fixed in the future.
