Musings: Childhood Food Faves
After writing about school lunch, I got to thinking about what meals are nostalgic for me now. It seems as though the simple things are the ones that stand out the most from my childhood. But, kids typically like things simple, so that makes sense. Here are favorite memories:
|Homemade Frozen Juice Pops|
|Poached Egg in a Mug|
|Grapefruit with Jelly and Sprinkled Sugar|
And my number one most memorable meal: Peanut Butter Sandwich. I used to eat peanut butter sandwiches all the time in different forms. Peanut butter and jelly/jam/preserves (the best was my grandmother’s homemade strawberry preserves), peanut butter and bananas, peanut butter and honey, and (when I was in high school) peanut butter and cream cheese.
Even now I have peanut butter sandwiches, sometimes in their classic form, and other times in a more grown up way. In fact, yesterday for lunch….

Cinnamon sugar toast, triscuits with cheddar cheese baked under the broiler until bubbly, artichokes, graham crackers with peanut butter, better cheddars with peanut butter, air popped popcorn and the very unhealthy brown sugar and butter sandwich!
Brown sugar and butter sandwich? That one’s new for me! I’ve heard of sugar and butter…. Sounds very yummy!
Oh, that reminds me I loved brown sugar and peanutbutter sandwiches, and graham crackers with butter and white sugar. I also made myself sharp cheddar sandwiches with yellow mustard and salt and pepper, of which I was quite proud that I concocted on my own.
Brown sugar & peanut butter sandwiches…never tried that. I bet that would be good warmed…like grilled cheese style. 🙂
