??????? and what pray tell are "OKRA CRISPS" 2Lane? I love fried okra.
It's okra that has been dried, cooked and seasoned. It's crunchy like a potato chip, and a really great snack. I get them at the grocery store in the candy section.

Ate a lot of fried frog legs when I was a kid; haven't had them for many, many years.

Something I eat now that didn't exist,as far as I know, when I was a kid is OKRA CRISPS! Love them!
I've eaten frog legs throughout my life. During my late teens my Dad started cutting the frogs right behind the head instead of at the midsection. Some of the tastiest meat is on the front legs and in the back. Looks a little odd though... :ROFLMAO:

This is one of my favorite snacks. Lay a layer of saltine crackers on a plate. Pour hot tea over them and sprinkle with sugar.

Two Fig Newtons with a slice of Velveeta Cheese.

My Dad used to fry up bacon, remove it from skillet, add hominy, greens (spinach or whatever was in season), and tomatoes. After tossing those together in some of the bacon grease, he would add the bacon back in. Probably not the healthiest (he did have several bypass surgeries late in life) but sure was tasty.

Fresh bread
Good unsalted butter
Chocolate, either shaved bar or chips (shaved bar is best but chips are right there and easy)
Optionally as a sandwich to keep the chocolate from falling off when you eat it

It's basically an instant dessert, I've eaten it all my life (probably a couple times a week haha)

I'll skip dessert.
