I'll be visiting Amish country Sept.5-6 and would appreciate suggestions for good restaurant choices around Lancaster, Pa. for good Pennsylvania Dutch Food.
I grew up eating these yellow cookies with brown edges but haven't seen them in many years. They were made by FFV ( Fine Foods of Virginia ) who also made Orange Thins. I recall as a kid we would dip them in our Russian Tea ( Tang and Nestea ) and were they ever yummy.
I've searched the internet but no luck as to a source for these wonder cookies from yesteryear. Anyone remember them or found them lately?
If you were in the army during the 60's and 70's chances are you have. The B-1 units as we called them consisted of small olive drab cans of meat, fruit, veggies and cakes. There was also a package of crackers, spread, cocoa, sugar, salt, pepper, gum, plastic utensils and cigarettes in each B-1 box.
A great deal of swapping went on amongst soldiers as you never knew what a B-1 contained until you opened it. The beans and franks were prized while the canned pork was not very good. The fruit cocktail was tasty but the fruit or date cakes were dry as a bone. As for the canned eggs, well I won't go there.
Many soldiers ( only briefly for me ) smoked in those days but for some reason the four pack of Newports seemed to dominate C-Rations over all other brands. One pack of Marlboros were easy worth two packs of Newports.
While the C-Rations gave GI's needed calories and sustained life they sure made a hot meal something to look forward to. Even the infamous S.O.S. would trump anything in that B-1.
Last time I checked my P38 was still hanging from my dog tags. Any vet from that era can tell you that C-Rations were of no use without a P38.
Down here in the capital of S.C. pimento cheese burgers are all the rage. Many local joints have them and even claim that the owner's mom makes the pimento cheese fresh every day.
When President Bush visited Columbia a few years ago dang if he didn't eat a pimento cheese burger at Rockaways for lunch.
Is this just a Carolina thing or do yall have them other places? If you ain't tried one, it shore can trump a conventional cheese burger.
The pizza and four berry sundae at Sam's Club floats my boat!
I'm borrowing my neighbor's and dang if it doesn't fry a turkey without oil. It uses a propane tank so it still gives us guys an excuse to cook outside and drink beer.
