From Chipped Beef to Quinoa: 100 Years of American Family Dinners

If you grew up in the '90s, then chances are you and your family enjoyed many nights of tacos for dinner. After all, beef tacos and refried beans were among the trendiest family dinners in 1995, according to an interesting new video by Mode.com that chronicles America's favorite dinners over the last 100 years. For example, have you ever heard of Creamed Chipped Beef & Buttered Peas? It may not sound very appetizing, but apparently it was all the rage in 1935. As for 2015, the family dinner of choice is pretty spot-on: Grilled Salmon Over Quinoa & Kale Salad. Oh, and it's really too bad that cheese fondue dinners (1975), aren't still a thing, because mmmmm, cheese.
