New Mexico here. We ate red and green chile with everything. Fresh tortillas, beans, beans and then some beans.

I bet that was an awesome mix though!! So much good food from both areas!
I have heard of shoo fly pie, but never had it or made it. The German side of hubby's family have a few pork/sauerkraut/apple type recipes they ate a lot. I got really good at cooking it, which really wasn't hard. I've even made my own sauerkraut!
It's funny you say they were on to dinner preparing after breakfast! I grew up in a family who did the same. LOL I still find myself doing that, but I justify it by telling myself I live in a house full of males, all they do is eat. LOL I have four boys, five if you include hubby, which I do! I remember lunch was the snack type meal, no one ever sat down to a full lunch. The main meals were breakfast and supper. It was so odd after meeting my husband that they put so much effort into lunch. I still don't eat much for lunch.
I didn't think anyone else ate tomato and onion sandwiches!! We often would just have onion sandwiches on white bread with a little mayo or mustard, salt and pepper! I ate a lot of fresh tomatoes with salt or straight out of the garden washed off by the garden hose. We still do that in the summer time here, but Colorado has such a short growing season.
I've never actually had a persimmon, but we lived in Washington state for a while and always had tons of apples and various berries! The wild strawberries were the best!
Now a days, I have my own chickens and a large garden so not a whole lot has changed. I wanted my kids to be able to experience some of this stuff too! We have a butcher in town, but I was never that impressed with them. Recently though we got an old style butcher downtown and all the meat is local!! I go down there often! They even have a little deli where you can order sandwiches and a can of soda. LOL
I really do need to get all of our family recipes together. I'd like to make a book with all the recipes and have it printed! Pass it on down to my sons, or their wives if they are interested.
damn, sorry im healthy as a horse and haven't been to a doctor in 13 years, well there goes my karma its going to up catch to me quick.....

No, no the taters were perfectly fried. My arteries caused a change of menu.
Trick to a good skillet is keeping it seasoned proper.

I swear I saw Five Alive in the store not all that long ago! I LOVE LOVE LOVE fried bologna or fried spam sandwiches! Hell, I still eat it. My 14 year old son loves fried spam! Fried spam or bologna, lettuce, tomato, mustard on cheapy white bread!
I didn't even know they made chocolate syrup in a can! I'll have to look for it now. LOL As for a Braves game, I'm just now learning about baseball. My family was a football family, but my youngest son is a baseball fanatic! I found out that my grandpa (moms dad) was big into baseball as was my uncle who was going to go into the minors, but then decided to go work with my grandpa instead. We joke that my youngest is my grandpa reincarnated, with his love of baseball. Baseball try outs are soon and we already have coaches wanting to draft my youngest. They say he has a good arm, whatever the hell that means. I know he pitches a lot. Like I said, still learning about the game. LOL
