    Eating In The Early Sixties

    * Pasta had not been invented.

    * Curry was a surname.

    * Indian restaurants were only found in India .

    * A Chinese chippy was a foreign carpenter.

    * A Pizza Hut was an Italian shed.

    * A Big Mac was what we wore when it was raining.

    * Olive oil was kept in the medicine cabinet

    * Herbs were used to make rather dodgy medicine.

    * A takeaway was a mathematical problem.

    * A pizza was something to do with a leaning tower.

    * The only vegetables known to us were spuds, peas, carrots and cabbage,

    * All crisps were plain; the only choice we had was whether to put the salt on or not.

    * Tesco's was where poor people shopped.

    * Grocers only sold food and didn't have a bank named after them.

    * Coke was something that we put on the fire.

    * Eating outside was a picnic.

    * Cooking outside was called camping.

    * Eating raw fish was called poverty, not sushi.

    * A microwave was something out of a science fiction movie.

    * If you ate pork & beef sausages money was tight

    * Brown bread was something only poor people ate.

    * Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking

    * Bread and jam was a treat.

    * Hors d'oeuvre was a spelling mistake.

    * Fish didn't have fingers in those days.

    * Ready meals only came from the fish and chip shop.

    * Frozen food was called ice cream.

    * Nothing ever went off in the fridge because we never had one.

    * If we said that we were on a diet, we simply got less.

    * Healthy food consisted of anything edible.

    * People who didn't peel potatoes were regarded as lazy.

    * "Kebab" was not even a word never mind a food.

    * Cornflakes had arrived from America but it was obvious the would never catch on.

    * The phrase "boil in the bag" would have been beyond comprehension.

    * The idea of "oven chips" would not have made any sense at all to us.

    * Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold.

    * We never heard of Croissants we certainly couldn't pronounce it,

    * We thought that Baguettes were a problem the French needed to deal with.

    * Garlic was used to ward off vampires, but never used to flavour food.

    * Water came out of the tap, if someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than petrol for it they would have become a laughing stock.

    * Food hygiene was all about washing your hands before meals.

    * The one thing that we never ever had on our table in the sixties were elbows.

    Cancer isnt new. They used to call it 'consumption'. Nowt to do with eating too much of course. My Mums got diabetes, as soon as you walk through the door the plate of chocolate Club biscuits comes out. What can you say? Eating in the 60's 3275847336

    Consumption is TB (tuberculosis), they used to stick people in a sanatorium to recuperate wheeling them outside no matter what the weather to breathe the 'clean' air and sticking sandbags on their chests while they slept in order to strengthen the lungs.
