What did your Mom always have on hand, that you NEVER do?

Oh yeah! The Heinz chili sauce was a must in our house. I remember my mom making a "salad" that consisted of iceberg lettuce leaves, a big dollop of homemade Thousand Island dressing which was really Miracle Whip mixed with chili sauce - yech! There was a nother version of salad that was iceberg lettuce with cottage cheese and either sliced peaches from a can or pineapple with the ever present dollop of Miracle Whip and I'm just about gagging thinking of it. Another item I haven't seen mentioned yet: Kraft (I think) pimento cheese in a small glass jar. The empty glass jars ended up being our stock of juice glasses for many years. And one more: Chicken A'la King (in those frozen bags that you thawed in boiling water) on top of toasted Bays English Muffins, an all time favorite!

Not just ring baloney, but PICKLED ring baloney! Loved it as a kid and yes, I'm from Michigan. Another related item: Mom used to hook her metal meat grinder to the side of the pull out wooden chopping board to make ground baloney - ground baloney sandwiches anyone?!
