Childhood favorite sandwich

That's right -- and I don't remember anyone ever getting sick from those unrefrigerated meat or tuna sandwiches sitting in our warm Alabama classrooms all morning. Today, we would be charged with child endangerment!

Childhood favorite sandwich

Oh, my mother would make those cinnamon treats with leftover pie dough scraps, and I made them for my kids when they were little. YUM!-- hope they remember this with their own kids now!
Another favourite from my childhood which I passed on to my kids -- take any leftover chocolate frosting from icing a cake, and spread it between graham crackers. Let the graham cracker sandwich cookies sit a little to mellow -- best thing ever in a lunch box or with a glass of milk in front of the TV.

Childhood favorite sandwich

Just like my grandma used to make me back in the 50's!

Childhood favorite sandwich

My understanding from Brits who hate PB, is that it stems from childhood memories of the vast quantities of (often rancid) peanut butter that was shipped to Britain from the US after WWII. (Postwar aid gone bad)

What was your favourite childhood concoction, which you now think is disgusting?

Much better homemade donuts were to use the Pillsbury refrigerated biscuit dough. Separate each biscuit from the roll. Poke a hole in the center and stretch gently to form doughnut shape . Deep fry in hot oil, then roll in cinnamon sugar. Must be eaten immediately while warm. Our family loved them as a weekend treat!

I loved the old cherry coke drugstore fountain drinks as a teenager too! But when the canned cherry coke came out and was my daughter's favorite as a young adult, I couldn't stand it. Guess we do eventually grow up... The mixing every pop available at parties was called swamp water here in southern Ontario when my kids were growing up.

Childhood memories! (I'm "over 60", too) My favourite was mayo and jelly sandwiches -- then there were the peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches my "northern" grandma made us when we visited. But my all time favorite was fried bologna sandwiches with mayo (and one my kids loved, too. but without the mayo) .
