For this week's Throwback Thursday, we wondered what you miss most about living at home with your folks.... or not at all?

JStew: Man, there's lots of things to miss. I miss eating my mom's cooking everyday, for sure. What I might miss most, although naturally I didn't appreciate it at the time, was that we all lived under the same roof. I grew up in the same house as my grandparents. It was a big house, and we all lived together. Well, my sister had gone to college by then, but my most of my life was with my whole friggin' family. I wish I'd had more foresight about it. I miss my grandparents terribly, and would give anything to go back sometimes. And talk about missing my mom's cooking..... I miss my grandmother's just as much. the two were unstoppable in the kitchen. These days at family events, it's me and my mom in the kitchen, and thank god I'm old enough to be mindful of the memories I make with her now.

Cori: I actually miss a lot about living at home, too. There was always activity and someone to talk to. And yummy food. My mom baked a lot, so there were always sweets. But I think the thing I miss most are the beverages! My mom was always making cups of tea or coffee—so there was always something warm and cozy to drink. Or in the summer, if we were playing outside, we'd always have to take a lemonade or ice-tea break when she brought out the drink trays. It’s still that way, thankfully!

The answers range from funny to pure nostalgia, as always. Let's take a look and see what you missed...

Mary Klein Drouin Feeling of safety and security. Unconditional love.
Greg Miller I grew up on a farm ... I miss the freezer always full of beef.
Nikki Johnson That my mother did all the dishes and all the laundry.
Aisling Doucette Laughing together while having supper.
Rick Thibodeau Playing cards together.
Betsy Goodwin How carefree life was and not appreciating it.
Elaine Foss Fitzpatrick Not having to decide what's for dinner...it's the little things!
Chinonye 'cinny' Anumaka I miss a lot of things about my parents home. Plenty food and love to go a life time
