5- When was the first time I ate THAT?

Broccoli...
Seems like it snuck up on me...
Mom must have slipped one by me ...
or on second thought was it after I was married.

Just wondering.

Pizza. I hated it. Took off everything and ate the bread part.

A Reuben. Wow.

Frog legs.

Forked River, NJ, Barnegat Bay, NJ, - CHERRYSTONE CLAMS - 1950's.

I was in my teens - parents bought them directly from the clammers at the dock - paid $1.00 per 100.

Took them to a vacation bungalow (shack) we would rent for a week.

Everyone would have a dozen or so raw on the half shell, with a strong (horse radish) cocktail sauce.

Then we would have a couple a hundred steamed, each person dipping in their own bowl of melted butter.

Finally, everyone got a (coffee) cup of the broth from the steaming pot after it had been doctored with spices (celery seed was always one) and reduced slightly.

Given access to a TIME MACHINE, this is an absolute certain repeat for me.
