Dh and I were discussing our childhood foods, and we came up with some interesting facts.
One was on pizza, which is the question:
Did you eat pizza growing up?
And, what type, from where?
We started the discussion because it's kind of a long running joke that my Dfil, who in every other way was fantastic, thought that pizza was junk food. We think that he just didn't grow up with it, and it didn't settle with his stomach later in life when he tried it.
But, as we spoke, it occurred to me that my dad never asked for, or ordered pizza, either. Once, on the way to the mountains, we stopped at a pizza parlor and ate it.
So, I looked back and realized that my mom let us get one of the 2 frozen pizzas that they made back then, once in a blue moon, to have on a night when my dad was at work all night. (On call.)
Aside from that, and it was only desirable because it was something that we didn't get - it was not a great pizza - and a slice at the Catholic church fair once, which our neighbor took us to, I didn't eat pizza until I was a teen.
At that point, we found the best pizza ever - a small, local place that was amazing, and they delivered. I decided that I loved pizza then, but still the family never ordered it in. My sister and I got it when our parents went out at dinner time. Well, mostly my sister, but I didn't complain, and ate my share!
That made me wonder if other people got pizza growing up? How did your parents' feel about it?
My grandparents didn't have it, either. Though, sometime in her 80's, one of my grandmother's discovered frozen pizza on French bread. She had them after that, now and then.
How about you?
