    Graham crackers without jelly are pretty good too.

    Bananas with peanut butter definitely pulls my chain. Yum yum yum.

    A joke in my family is that I like food with my ketchup as I like a lot of it with 99% of I eat, but even I wouldn’t have ketchup with an English Muffin.

    Does Dad have the recipes for all of these entrees written down?

    Are they kept in a secret vault?

    Is Dad experimenting with some new combinations?

    Warning to Parents of young children: kids may try to copy these entrees at home.

    “Bread w/ an egg on it” – Toast that bread and put some peanut butter on it and that’s what I’m having for breakfast this morning! (I’ve been accused by my 4 teen/adult children of being “a Dad.” It may be true. :) )

    My dad liked anything left over from dinner. All stodged together. He was an artful stodger.

    Finally. A restaurant that really servers home cooking. I’ll bet I could get tuna fish cheese macaroni there. It’s great with a glob of mayo mixed in.

    A lot of those sound like how I still eat, though I tend to do the improvising with healthier foods now… still some pretty weird combinations based on what I still have sitting around and how fast I can make it.

    I might try some of that stuff, especially the pickles and chips, if it weren’t for the prices.

    Toasted bread with an egg on it is still one of my favorite things. Nowadays it usually includes hot sauce and cheese.

    There is definitely honesty in that menu with some Dads. However, many of us are really everyday good cooks and not just bar b que Dads….

    I think the best deal is the pretzels with root beer is the best deal. It’s the only meal that comes with a beverage.

    My Dad used to make us pancakes on Sunday morning in the shapes of U.S. states. Funny how he never told us which state it was until after he poured the batter. :)
