Instant Tradition

“Instant tradition” is a contradiction of course, but it’s also meaningful in at least two other ways: an attempt to create a tradition on the spot by some form of persuasion (such as marketing), and a tradition that involves pre-prepared items.

“Pigs in blankets” using hot dogs and canned pastry seem to fit all of the above extremely well, too well in fact.

What about DIGBC? *

Any others?

* Disgusting Instant Green Bean Casserole

Fluffernutter sandwiches and queso dip come immediately to mind.

Absolutely. And pbj, grilled cheese and rice krispie treats.

I see nothing instant about any of these.
Just tasty American heritage regional and national food cuisine.

I can’t identify with most of these, but is “grilled cheese” a problem? I WISH I could indulge in some version more frequently. So many versions!

Problem? In what way? I included it because you can buy processed wrapped sliced cheese and processed bread and still prepare a tradition.

I’m with you. Perhaps I misunderstood the question.
Starting with green bean casserole.
So, premade ingredients combined to make another dish.
But I don’t think disgusting, I think delicious :yum:

Well, I took instant to reference the tradition, not the food. I now realize I was coming at it the wrong way.
I’m left handed though, so I’m used to this.

I’m left handed too!

In my defense, I was ASKING if it was a problem. I almost never assume I understand.

Yep. I take the same route.

If the OP returns, it would be nice to understand the question. I rarely enjoy staying confused. Is that a right handed thing, lol.
