A Few Items From the Menu

Federal holiday today, so us AF folks had the day off. Sitting around the table with the family for breakfast this morning, we struck up a conversation on various things about each of us. "What is your favorite color? What is your favorite book? What meal would you eat on a desert island if you had to eat the same meal for the rest of your life?" This line of questioning morphed into various strange things that my family has been know to eat from time to time.

For example, my son William's latest creation is the Salami and Peanut Butter Sandwich. Sounds nasty. I've been a trooper and tasted it. Yep, it's nasty. My son Benjamin is fond of his Swiss Cheese and Grape Jelly Sandwich. Nasty as well. They all gag at my strange sandwich: The Banana and Mayonnaise Sandwich. Something magical happens when those two ingredients mix.

Is it just me, or is this sandwich a Southern staple? I remember growing up eating them all of the time. Ask folks around here and you get the deer-in-the-headlights look. They don't know what they're missing.

Mmm banana sandwiches, especially at my great-grandmother's house. Leave them out on a plate all mayo-ed up for hours on a warm summer afternoon. No telling what was growing in them, but man they were good.

Don't know about the sandwich thing, but Happy Belated Veterans Day and THANK YOU for your service!!

B-a-n-a-n-a Banana!

I loves me some banana sammies! I like the mayo and a bit of Salt.

From one AF guy to another...your not crazy.

Todd said...

I prefer my banana sammies with peanut butter. Yum!

And I also thank you for your service to our country, sir, and for your friendship, and the many laughs which are therein included.

Forthwith and heretofore.

Oh yes, the banana and mayo. But it has to be good mayo, like Dukes. None of this light or fat free stuff. My daughter used to enjoy ham and peanut butter on white bread. Perhaps she and your kids would get along.
