There are some things in life that just bring back good memories from childhood. Food is often one of them. There are several foods that do this for me. It isn't that they are necessarily really good foods (though some are), but just that I have good memories associated with them.
My family was extremely busy when I was in my early teen years. My older brothers had lots of after school activities, as did I. My mom and dad both worked running their company. One year we were also busy building our house in our "free time." This lent itself to having a lot of take out food. It was around this time that our town got its first Little Caesars. At that point you could get a couple pizzas for next to nothing so we'd get 4 and usually devour them. We ate a LOT of Little Caesars. I mean a LOT. For some reason though, when I see a Little Caesars now it reminds me of those good times.
A new Little Caesars is going in down the street from our house now. That makes me happy.
