EATING IN THE  FIFTIES 
  
1.          Pasta  had not been invented.  It was macaroni or  spaghetti. 
2.          Curry  was a surname. 
3.          A  take-away was a mathematical problem. 
4.          Pizza?  Sounds like a leaning tower somewhere. 
5.          Bananas  and oranges only appeared at Christmas  time. 
6.          All  chips were plain. 
7.          Rice  was a milk pudding, and never, ever part of our  dinner. 
8.          A  Big Mac was what we wore when it was  raining. 
9.          Brown  bread was something only poor people  ate. 
10.     Oil  was for lubricating, fat was for  cooking. 
11.     Tea  was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never  green. 
12.     Cubed  sugar was regarded as posh. 
13.     Chickens  didn't have fingers in those days. 
14.     None  of us had ever heard of yogurt. 
15.     Healthy  food consisted of anything edible. 
16.     Cooking  outside was called camping. 
17.     Seaweed  was not a recognized food. 
18.     'Kebab'  was not even a word, never mind a food. 
19.     Sugar  enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white  gold. 
20.     Prunes  were medicinal. 
21.     Surprisingly  muesli was readily available. It was called cattle  feed. 
22.     Pineapples  came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real  one. 
23.     Water  came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more  than   gasoline  for it they would have become a laughing stock. 
24.     The  one thing that we never ever had on our table in the fifties...was  elbows!
