People Share Weird Family Meals They Had As Kids

When you were growing up, your family may have had a strange name for a regular meal, most likely with a story behind it. Or maybe a parent whipped up something odd from what was in the house and it became a hit, even though you never encountered that dish anywhere else. HelloCullen mused about this on Twitter and began a landslide of discussion about weird family meals people either ate or encountered elsewhere.

My dad would make "pizza sandwiches" with one slice of bread, salami, cheese, ketchup, and spices, warmed in the toaster oven. That was good. He also made "Tang toast," which was not. 

Some of those stories are downright disgusting.

Stewed tomatoes, brown sugar, and bread heated up in a saucepan. I have no idea where my mom came up with that. I've never had it anywhere other than at home as a kid.

Mom kept powdered milk around "for emergencies," which I guess meant recipes. That stuff is awful. Then I found out the family next door, with seven kids, drank it all the time. That's the only kind of milk they had outside of school.
