The 1950s: The food is salty, starchy, soothing. Milk arrives in glass bottles; eggs are delivered by a farmer. We can our own tomatoes and fruit. Frozen food is too expensive. I feed sugar cubes to the junkman's horse.
The 1960s: College food is salty, starchy, and much less soothing. My roommate and I supplement with Ritz crackers, peanut butter, and jam. She sneers at my store-brand label.
