The other day I got to thinking about sandwiches that I ate growing up. I decided it might be fun to make up a bunch of them and try them again. Somewhere along the way I stopped eating this kind of food.
The title of the post is a bit deceiving, because I’m sure all of these sandwiches have been around long before the 70s. But since that’s when I remember eating them, and because I think the title sounds cool, I’m sticking with it.
First up is the cheese sandwich. I’m pretty sure I took one of these to school every day for an entire year. I tended to get stuck on one thing. Mom always made it with white bread, an American cheese slice, iceberg lettuce and Miracle Whip. I hadn’t eaten one of these in forever, but it didn’t taste too bad when I tried it for lunch the other day.
During the Blizzard of ‘78, we ate a lot of fried baloney sandwiches. We must have eaten other things too, but that’s all I remember eating. Do you remember the Blizzard of ‘78? Did you ever eat a fried baloney sandwich?
I remember eating this and I remember liking it, so I bought a can to try again.
I didn’t like it. It smelled very canned to me, kind of like cat food. I think my tastes have changed or something. I also used to eat liverwurst and I liked that too, but I was afraid to try it now.
There are lots of foods that I remember eating when I was young, but rarely or never eat now. Things like Twinkies, Zingers, Tang, strawberry Nesquik…
What about you? What foods do you remember eating when you were young?
