Debbie and I spent a lot of vacation recounting childhood memories. She is 8 years older than me so remembers things I don't and I of course have stories she doesn't remember. It was wonderful fun….we even drove by the little 1960s shopping center where my grandmother would go every week to buy suntan lotion. We would stay in the car while she went in for the 'suntan lotion.' Turns out she was buying alcohol….I guess we never thought it was odd that she was going to a liquor store to buy suntan lotion. Mind you though….Debbie was EIGHT years older than me….you'd think she would have caught on…..
One of things Debbie reminded me about was the glories of fried bologna. It was one of the things we would make for ourselves. In fact, I don't remember my mother ever making it. Yes, we took bologna, fried it in butter and placed it on white bread with a touch of mayonnaise. Ernie and Owen expressed dismay at the idea of it, Leo ignored us but Debbie and I shouted in glee.
So of course later in the week we HAD to recreate the fried bologna sandwiches of our childhood and good GOD but they were delicious! DELICIOUS I tell you! Even Ernie and Owen came around and agreed it was good. HA!
Any similar childhood food memories out there?
