Mine is also not a babysitter thing, but a couple of the things I loved when I was a kid were spaghetti sandwiches (left over cold spaghetti on cheap white bread) and refried bean sandwiches. I also liked to eat left over cornbread with sugar and milk on it, like cold cereal. Another, which I still like occasionally, is peanut butter and jam sandwiches using left over pancakes as the bread.

I never had a babysitter, but at PJ parties my friends and I tried odd stuff like - chocolate chip cookies and ketchup, or watermelon and spaghetti sauce. somebody tried mustard in coca cola, but that made her upchuck - good times, good times.

I also ate sugar sandwiches or pickle sandwiches as a kid.

My sister ate a Milkbone dog biscuit with ketchup once. I don't think she liked it much though.

mmm, a slice of bread, some peanut butter and sugar sprinkled on top. Eaten open faced. Back when kids were allowed to eat sugar and drink real pop.

When I was around 13-14 I did a few odd jobs for a nice couple at their tiny mom & pop store on the corner. I can't remember if they paid me money or in goods, but I always left with a bottle of Dr. Pepper and a package of Suzie-Q's. Wow, the memories that just flooded back!

I used to take empty pop bottles to a local mom and pop and would leave with Coke and Pixie Sticks
Back when Coke could take the rust off your pocketknife

no baby sitter here either. a friend and i would always make grilled cheese when we were together. the twist? we brushed the bread with evaporated milk and put under the broiler. we would keep brushing, turning over and so on til a nice crusty coating on the sandwich. we loved it.

Mustard sandwiches are best with a nice bit of cayenne.

I spent half a year in Denmark when I was 5. In nursery school I would occasionally have an open faced chocolate sandwich on heavy rye bread. It was chocolate specifically for sandwiches :D

Sometimes as a snack, I have another Danish standby: lard or bacon fat on heavy Danish rye with salt and pepper.
