When you were a kid did you like eating at your friends house more than you did at home?

I was just looking in my cabinets to grab something quick to make myself for lunch and for some reason it popped into my head that when I was a kid, I used to love going to my friends house. We would raid her kitchen and she'd have the best stuff in there that I loved to eat but we never had, like chef boyardee raviolis,lol. I remember how she always thought they had nothing to eat and I was like, what are you talking about! Look at all those cans of goodness in your shelves,lol. Everythign we had to eat, took forever and a day to cook because the ONLY convienience food that we had was a box of cereal, lol.

Funny to remember things like that,lol.

  • LMAO, yes. I was on a strict nasty diet. I was about 8 or 9 when the original slim fast shakes came out and I promise you they were not smooth and flavored back then. lunch was skim milk cheese, flavorless boiled chicken, celery sticks, OMG so nasty. My Mom was on a huge crash diet every few weeks and I had to suffer along. I never had pop, fast food, etc til I was 15 or 16 and had a job and my own money.

    Friend had colorful cereals and crunchy snacks.... it was shocking and exciting

  • Yes. My friend lived near the school, and we went to her house for lunch a lot. Many times she'd eat what I brought and I'd eat what her mom had left for her!

  • I agree with PP, everything tasted better at a friends house...probably because it was in a totally different atmoshpere.

  • Not really but I do remember not seeing or experiencing a Twinkie until I met my friend across the street at 8 yrs old. My mom never bought those types of snacks.

  • Actually no, I thought my mom was the best cook, I was leary of other peoples food unless it was general stuff like burgers and dogs etc.

  • Oh, gosh, no! My mom is an AMAZING cook! Everything she makes somehow comes out tasting like Heaven. lol. I LOVE my mom's food and my family still goes over there at least once a week to eat dinner with her. After I had DS I got really sick and could not eat ANYTHING. DH went to every restaurant and got all my favorite things, and I couldn't eat it. They wouldn't release me from the hospital until I ate something. So my mom went home and made me meat loaf, man n cheese, boiled potatoes and corn bread and I ate until they took the plate away and wouldn't let me eat anymore. lol.
