Episode 025: Snack Platter, Memories & Spring Hiatus

In this episode, we kept things casual with a low-key snack platter full of delicious eats pulled from Erinn’s pantry and fridge! Tortilla chips with tomatillo salsa, green grapes, pistachios, honey roasted peanuts, sharp cheddar cheese, and cinnamon graham crackers. All things you can find at your local grocery store. We also chatted about our lives at the moment (personal and professional), 90’s nostalgia, and had something important to announce!

If you don’t already know, we’ll be taking a recording hiatus for the next few months. We won’t be recording any new podcasts during this time, but that doesn’t mean we’re gone for good! You can always find our entire library of episodes at the Past Episodes tab at the top of our website, and also on our show page on iTunes. If you’re feeling nice, we’d love a review! You can also contact us anytime by sending us an email: heytablechat@gmail.com or find us on Instagram or Facebook

Thank you so much for all of your support since we started the show last April! We have loved getting to know all our wonderful listeners and hearing your feedback, suggestions, and encouraging comments. We’ve also loved hosting two giveaways for our community like our Birthaween giveaway and our most recent collab with the awesome organization, Drop the Label Movement. Now, go live, go do your thang, and catch us next time on Table Chat, the show that’s taking a break…but not for too long!

Episode 020: Nostalgic Potluck, The 90s & Childhood Food Memories

Today’s episode is sponsored by the 1990’s and the color beige! We’re talking all about our childhood food memories. We discuss the biology of taste, why food is so often tied to memories and emotions, share our listener’s favorite childhood foods, and then discuss our favorite, funniest, and even worst food moments we had as kids.

For our food chat portion, we created a nostalgic potluck worthy of an after-school snack time. Thank you to some of our listeners for submitting their childhood foods as well!

Here’s what we sampled:

Honey butter crescent rolls

Salami and mayonnaise on white bread

Tuna salad on white bread

Cool Ranch Doritos

Spaghettios

Beef Ravioli

“Fluffernutter” Peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich

Cosmic brownies

Fruity Tootsie rolls

Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal

Rice Krispie treats

Rachel’s favorite recent food memory – Rare Bar & Grill 

Erinn’s favorite recent food memory – Cauliflower Romesco with Roasted Salted Potatoes

P.S Erinn made an error to the cauliflower recipe she discussed in a recent food memory. It was a “cauliflower romesco” NOT “cauliflower romanesco.” Romesco is a red pepper based sauce and romanesco is a type of broccoli. The more you know!

Let us know some of your childhood food memories in the comments below!
