Sometimes my husband calls me "sugarbabe", just for fun, lol! Isn't it funny how we remember the theme songs to tv shows from 50 years ago, yet can't remember what we cooked for dinner last night????

Chef Boyardee pizza kit in a box. You'd add water to make the crust then pour on the little can of sauce and sprinkle on the littler can of cheese.
It wasn't authentic, but it tasted good. emoticon

Old movies playing in the middle of the night, and there was a live host, interviewing an actor from the old movie, at 3 am!! I had a baby that could not sleep and watched this show for months, back in the early 1970's.
