3 Things I Loved as a Child:

Road Trips: My parents loved to travel, but had to do so on a bookkeeper and teacher's salary. This meant, what I look back on as ``fun-filled`` car experiences, but did not have the same appreciation for the ride and my younger brother, at that time. What was cool, was the destination. My parents drove us from Delaware, my home state, North. During any given summer growing up, we visited all of New England and New York City, and sometimes the South, stopping at many historical site along the way. Every year was a road trip adventure and many memories were made.

Crabbing: We spent at least two weeks with my grandparents in southern Delaware each summer. At a very young age, I learned from my grandmother, aunts and uncles how to cut up and tie bait, and use a crab net and basket. At the end of the day, we would take our catch back to a little cabin on the river front. Crabs were cooked, beer flowed (ice tea for me), and lots of card games, played.

Holiday season: Most kids love the holidays. My parents both came from families with limited means, so they wanted to make sure my brother and I had the ultimate holiday -- every year. They both were very creative and used Halloween as the starting point to prepare decorations. We were the family on the street with the light displays, twelve ft tall, live tree and artfully, handmade ornaments. Our also talented relatives, would compete to see which house was the most creative and best looking. A magical time, where the gift-giving took a back seat to the holiday preparation and contributions from each family member to make it a special season, every year.

3 Best Parent-Approved FoodsL

1.) Easy to make
2.) Inexpensive ingredients
3.) Very hard to ruin

Pizza: With young kids, you learn that you can make almost anything into a pizza. Even toasted sandwich bread or bagel with a little spaghetti sauce and shredded (or even a slice of) cheese and Voila! Even over-cooked (which some prefer), pizza is an cheap food, that doesn't take a lot of imagination to make.

Grilled Cheese: Whether it is Gruyere between Sourdough or American between Wheat, Grilled cheese is again, easy to make, and better with butter. I prefer it paired with hot, creamy tomato soup, but the sandwich itself can always be enjoyed on its on.

Tortilla Chips and Salsa: (Qualifies more as a ``snack`` but I've made it into a meal far too often). Easy to prep, hardly any mess (unless you add queso - which is always welcome), this snack time wonder will satisfy every time. It is the reason why you're too full to eat your dinner at home and when they place it on your table before a meal at restaurants. Salty and crunchy, you can add a little lime and guacamole or eat the chips by themselves. It is the forever perfectly timed treat.
