Memory Lane Monday: Least favorite foods




I’m using the ’52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History’ series authored by Amy Coffin as an aid in starting my personal history throughout the year.  See the entire challenge on my Examiner.com article. I want to leave my OWN story in my own words so my posterity will be able to know me a little better. Perhaps you’d like to do the same.

Here is the beginning of my memories about my LEAST FAVORITE FOODS:

I remember mom serving a casserole with ground beef in it and Chinese noodles on the top.  I really didn’t like it, but it wasn’t served often and I ate it anyway.  I can’t say it was awful and gaggy, I just didn’t like it much. 

I wasn’t a fan of cooked broccoli, and it’s now one of my favorite vegetables.  (I don’t like it raw, however.) I guess I really wasn’t picky about food. 

The only thing I can think of in my experience now is Greek food.  I’ve tried it two or three times, and just don’t like the taste.

As founder of Family Tree Quest, people sometimes ask what tools I recommend for organizing and recording personal and family history.  Here are my highest recommendations.

Heritage Collector Suite  Your complete Family History Management System  (my highest recommendation)
This has everything you need to get your family history clutter into one, orderly place.  Store and retrieve photos, documents, videos, etc.  Create a PDF for a bound book.  Many bonus items such as storybook and GPS modules.

Personal Historian Software- I love it’s timelines and personal history prompts. 

Portable, easy flip-and-scan-technology.  You can even scan pictures in the frame or while they remain in their photo albums!  I sit on the sofa in comfort and scan to my hearts delight.
