What types of meats did you grow up eating on a regular, to semi-regular basis, and which ones do you still eat?
We always had beef. T-bones, or ground for various things such as casseroles, meatballs, stuffed peppers or cabbages, or burgers. Pieces for soup or stew.
Less often than beef, but still regularly, we had thin pork chops, which were good.
And, semi-regularly, small lamb chops. They never tasted weird or gamey then.
Chicken, most often breasts and baked with a coating on them. Although one grandmother fried some mean chicken...it was delicious.
Way less often than others, was halibut. That was the only fish actually cooked in the house, and again, it was not weird tasting or fishy.
Turkey for Thanksgiving/Christmas. Roasted.
Ham a couple of times of year only.
The only clams that I ate were in clam chowder...from a can, or maybe at a restaurant. I loved it though!
That's it. Anything else I ate when we went out. At restaurants we ate other fish and some shellfish, I got addicted to duck a l'orange out, as well as other foods.
We actually cooked trout that we caught when on vacation, though not at home, and dad sometimes brought home shrimp cocktail, or fully cooked Dungeness crabs, but they were to eat out of the bag. Dungeness crabs were also street food in San Francisco that I enjoyed when we were there, and ate with large, hot pretzels, or Wharf bread.
I don't eat much beef anymore, but buffalo is close enough. I still eat chicken, and have made duck myself once. I have rarely made lamb chops myself, as they are more difficult to find, are more expensive, and are not anything like the ones that I used to eat.
No shellfish now, because of Dh, but I've made my share of fish. Tilapia, halibut, blue gill, trout, cod, salmon, and others that I'm drawing a blank on.
How about you?
