I LOVE Lebanon Bologna - the regular though, not the "sweet". I never knew there were 2 types before moving down here to VA where I ordered the sweet in error. Never again!

But Lebanon Bologna & cream cheese (& Genoa Salami & cream cheese) were were sandwich staples growing up at my house back in NY.

My mom would make me crepes as a treat every once in a while. I would have them with butter and sugar and she would yell at me for eating them too fast!

My all time favorite is peanut butter & jelly sandwishes. I sometimes have it for dinner. I have turned down full dinners just to eat my peanut butter & jelly sandwishes.

Years later I introduced my kids to it and they agree it rocks.
I have lived in Pa. since 1989 and never had Lebanon Bologna . One of these days I guess I will have to try it.

I grew up in Ohio, but Mom was from East TN. She made us fried apple pies for a treat. They were hand-sized folded-over pie dough with cinnanmon apple filling, fried in melted Crisco in a cast iron skillet. Heavenly! From the corner store, a 'carton' of little wax bottles filled with sweet liquid. They were called Nikl-Nips or something like that and cost five cents. Don't know if they're still made as that was a loooong time ago.

When I was growing up (small town, rural) we had only one "fast food" joint. A Dairy Queen drive in. I loved their french fries dipped in chocolate shake. I haven't had that for over 30 years... thankfully. We don't even eat fast food now. I do still think about that treat, though I'd never eat it now!
Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.

One of my Brighton Beach friends was into mustard sandwiches. Hard pretzels, knishes, pizza and sesame bars were the most readily available snacks in my neighborhood.

i adored butter-sammiches as a tot. also applesauce, salads swimming in creamy cucumber, yogurt, neopolitan icecream, bleu cheese......

i, too, am a born pennsylvanian, & lebanon balogna? read of that before, yet to see a deli offer that, though.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

I used to love lox, mashed potato, and boiled egg when the yolk is soft and the white is hard (what is it called?)
And something I have never seen in the states, we had this farmers cheese mixed with something sweet, could be just sugar, with rasins and it was dark chocolate glazed, that was to die for.

You are what you eat.
