Favorite childhood food

Crisp potato chips layered over a huge slather of sandwich spread. (Sandwich spread: really just mayo with chopped pickles in it.) All on white Rainbo bread.

Cold leftover scalloped potatoes and cold salmon patties for breakfast. Not the kind of scalloped potatoes you get in a box now-a-days. Real scalloped potatoes. And the salmon patties were probably fried in something ghastly like bacon grease.

Navy beans ‘n ham (greasy ham floating in a navy bean soup) on corn bread.

Ignorance was bliss.

One thought on “Favorite childhood food”

  1. Hoo boy, can I relate to that! Bologna sandwiches with mayo on white bread. No lettuce, tomato, pickle, mustard….just mayo and the kind of white bread you could ball up a whole slice into a walnut-sized smoosh.

    Package dried chicken noodle soup, flush with MSG and salt.

    Kool Aid by the pitcher.

    Deviled eggs on special picnic occasions, as many as you could cram in your mouth.

    Three color ice cream in a box.
