Another food that made me
I loved this! Growing up in Battle Creek, the self proclaimed Cereal Capital of the World, I’ve always been fascinated with the foods we eat. My lunches were at home until school lunches were introduced in the late 60s. Tomato or chicken noodle, really any of the canned soups paired with baloney, peanut butter, grilled cheese or tuna salad sandwiches. Then we took it up a notch with fried baloney or fried egg sandwiches. I remember my father feeding a huge roll of baloney into a grinder clasped to the table edge. He then added mayo and pickle relish.
Great post 📯. I love sandwiches and history. Also thanks for linking the texts of the cookbooks. How about a slice of sourdough, some hummus and red pepper?
To this day, I don’t like hot lunches, other than a bowl of soup in the depths of winter. I ate cream cheese & jelly sandwiches. Peanut butter on rice cakes. The occasional grilled cheese (pressed in a waffle iron). Such nostalgia.
Loved this post. I definitely remember coming home for lunch, usually a PB & J sandwich, sometimes tuna salad. Always on sliced white bread. In fact, I still remember the commercial jingle for Bumblebee Tuna, as well as the commercial for Wonder bread.
