What Did/Does Your Dad Cook Best?

Time frame was early 1950's. For lunch on days my Mother wasn't home Daddy cooked sliced potatoes fried with bacon grease in the iron skillet, served with crisp bacon, Campbell's pork and beans, and sliced tomatoes from the garden if they were available.

I remember a fall day when Daddy had harvested the sweet potatoes, he culled out some little ones and roasted them on a big bread pan. When done, he cut them open, added butter, a little sugar and back in the oven. When my older siblings got off the school bus and walked to the house, they were so happy to have the sweet warm treat waiting for them. BTW, we were all as thin as fence rails because we didn't have prepared food other than canned food.

Your Favorite Retro Dishes

Stuffed celery. I read somewhere that during one of those retro decades celery was the American family's favorite vegetable.
In the 1950's I was a farm kid in Virginia. When my Mother went to work and became a 'modern woman' she found the Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee spaghetti dinner in the box. We loved it!
