    This reminds me of the "pizza" that I made for my brother when I was about 4
    or 5. First I would pull out the cutting board to serve as a special table.
    I then put a little cloth on it and a flower in a vase.

    I would make a piece of toast, put ketchup on it, a slice of American cheese
    and a slice of bologna. If I wanted to be really fancy I would use olive
    loaf. But we didn't seem to have that very often.

    Once I made him a cocktail to go with it. I used a stemmed pudding dish
    with a stuffed green olive and some 7 Up. Somebody must have been sick
    because we didn't have 7 Up very often. Mostly we had cans of Shasta diet
    soda.

    I can't remember the brand name but after Pop's first heart attack he
    guzzled diet "pineapple grapefruit" soda.

    Chock full of saccharin as a sugar substitute.

    I tried it exactly once. Terrible stuff, imho. He got to keep it all to
    himself, no problem!!!

    No saccharin in Diet Shasta in the modern era; I can't imagine any diet soda
    using sachharine anymore. Nutrasweet long ago replaced saccharin in sodas
    and now Splenda has pretty much replaced Nutrasweet.

    C'mon Andy, jump into the 21st century - the diet soda is much better than
    when you were a rugrat or teen-terror. 8-)

    l, not -l,

    We were the "Munsters" at the kitchen table, is how I can best explain
    us.

    Our Sis liked ketchup but wouldn't and still doesn't eat tomatoes.

    Me? I hardly ever ate anything!

    Reluctantly, I ate usual dinner salad.

    It all smelled great around the house, while cooking, it just didn't
    look so great on the plate.

    I learned fast, once I was away from home!

    Best,

    Andy

    Half & Half sounds pretty good; I'd like to try it and the Bitter Lemon.
    Have never seen it around here (St. Louis area); but, I'll specifically look
    next time I'm in the soda and mixer aisles.

    I loved most of the flavors. Not the cola so much though.

    I was once banned from making salad, after eating the whole entire head of
    iceberg when making the salad.

    I was in a play once where I was in an apartment with a power outage. I
    asked the host for a bitter lemon and wound up getting a real cocktail on
    which I got very drunk because I wasn't used to drinking liquor.

    I had to buy a bottle of bitter lemon to make it look authentic. Then I
    decided to try it. They were NOT kidding when they said it was bitter.

    It doesn't fit into your sloppy party BUM diet.

    That's not true. The overwhelming majority of diet sodas still use
    aspartame. Coke and Pepsi both make Splenda sweetened, but it doesn't
    sell anywhere near as much. Diet Rite has had Splenda for a long
    time. Diet 7 Up used Splenda for a while, then went back to
    Nutrasweet. "The 7 Up company claims they switched back to aspartame
    because they conducted a nation-wide study showing that people
    preferred the 'aspartame taste' over the taste of Splenda-brand
    Sweetener." I only buy Splenda for home sweetening, but I prefer
    sodas sweetened with aspartame (regular Diet Coke over Diet Coke With
    Splenda). What I love Splenda with is grapefruit.

    Julie,

    I took some saccharin tablets (for adding to a cup of coffee) on a
    hiking trip, thinking it would be a lightly portable and good sweet. I
    put one on my tongue and it was the most bitter thing I ever tasted.
    Nevermind the fact that the bitter aftertaste lasted for hours. ICK!!! :
    (((

    I forget what illness it was noted for.

    Best,

    Andy

    Guess I'm out of luck on trying it; they distribute to very few states, all
    quite distant from me.

    Julie,

    My life story: I basically grew up on bread & butter and milk. Mom once
    took me to the doc, concerned about my eating habits. Doc said he seems
    to be getting all the right nutrients, leave him alone. I'm the tallest
    in generations.

    Eggs were only acceptable when mixed into pancake batter.

    Look up "picky" in the dictionary. Yep, that was me THEN!!!

    That's what I liked was the bitter aftertaste. I used to drink Tab. It's
    no good the way they make it now. I never liked anything in my coffee.
    Could only drink it black.

    I would eat pancakes with "butter" on them. It was actually margarine. I
    wouldn't eat syrup. We didn't have real syrup in the house. Just fake
    stuff and sometimes they made it with brown sugar and maple flavoring. I
    would eat syrup on French Toast, but just a few drops. I would sift on as
    much powdered sugar as I could get away with. We had a Tupperware sifter
    that was designed to store the sugar in it. One of my parents would always
    cut me off and then I would add a few drops of syrup to make an icing.

    I didn't care for eggs much. My mom said poached eggs were the only thing I
    would eat after I had my tonsils out. I must have been really sick because
    I just can't imagine! I would eat them hard boiled either plain deviled or
    in egg salad. Would eat them hard fried (crisp) with just salt and no
    pepper. Didn't like scrambled too much but they were easy to make so I
    would sometimes eat them.

    I come from a family of picky eaters. My dad hated to try anything new and
    if it was new, he would run his fork through it looking for spices. If he
    saw something he didn't recognize, he would demand to know what it was
    before he ate it. My step grandpa would not touch a leftover nor would he
    eat outside. My brother was a pickier eater than I was. My mom would serve
    us cold cereal (but not too often) and more often raisins in hot oatmeal and
    then stand there making gagging noises telling us she didn't know how we
    could eat it. I thought this was rather unfair because it was all that she
    served us.

    I was tall but very much underweight as a child. I ate a lot! But I ate
    mostly vegetables so I probably wasn't taking in an overly lot of calories.
    I would get mad at the Dr. because he was always asking my mom if I was
    anorexic. If only I had that problem now! I only have to look at food and
    I put on weight.
