What we ate in Maine, Circa...

I am curious about everyones memories of what they remember eating as a child in Maine.
I hope that our diverse age makes this post very interesting. I thought to narrow it down if everyone just thought of three things in this order.

1. What was a fancy dinner at home...Sunday dinner or the big dinner of the week?

2. What was cooked when everyone had to eat but nobody had time to cook?

3. What was a seasonal delicacy?

For me Circa 1985 it was:
1.Boiled Dinner, with smoked pork shoulder not corned beef...and mom had to have the "Knuckle" whatever that was.
2. Beans and Hot Dogs or Kraft Macaroni and Hot Dogs
3. Smelts or Venison
