You’re probably familiar with new dinner trends: kale everywhere; grains everywhere; red meat approximately nowhere. But how well do you know the dinner trends of the generations that came before you?

This short video by Mode Studios starts in 1915 with roast beef and potatoes, and ends in 2015 with a dish that is — no surprise — significantly greener.

How does their selection line up with your memories of food over the years? I definitely remember lots of Tex-Mex goodness from my younger years, but I never considered the fact that my parent’s decision over what to serve for dinner might have been influenced by a national trend! Is there anything you think the video missed? What do you think family dinner will look like 10 years from now?
