Some of you are familiar with SOS. I have heard that it’s well known among military folk . The official name is chipped beef but in my house growing up, it was referred to as ‘shit on a shingle’. Classy, eh?
My mother would make her SOS using steak-umms (do they even make steak-umms anymore?…don’t answer that, I don’t really want to know), white flour/water gravy over toast.
I have ONE word for this meal, YUCK!
As young as 11 years old, I down right refused to eat this. I would make toast or a pbj. In all honesty, I didn’t like much of the food my mother cooked. She didn’t like anything green and was a real meat and potatoes kind of woman. A farmers daughter.
Perhaps all those plates of SOS, Sunday potroast, and packages of bologna are the reason I abstained from meat eating early in my adult life. I cut red meat at 18/19 years of age and was full vegetarian by my 25th birthday. Of course after a decade, pregnancy changed everything. Sigh…..
One thing I know, I will never serve my kids shit in a shingle. Or soggy water logged tuna that smells like cat food. I mean, barf!
My kiddos are eating gourmet, if I do say so myself.
I would love to know, what was the meal you detested as a kid?
