Popcorn – our Sunday night supper. It’s a family tradition, a carry over from my husband’s growing up years. On Sunday nights, his mom popped big batches of popcorn, and if anyone was still hungry they could fix a sandwich or dig through the frig for leftovers. Sounded like a great tradition to me, so I carried on when we first married. And nearly 30 years later, we are still popping that corn on Sunday nights.
This week, I added something from my growing up years. Braunschweiger, Miracle Whip, thinly sliced onions on Roman Meal Bread. Yum Yum!!!! Took me right back to my childhood. My mom often had the makings for this tasty treat on hand. Sometimes my Mom would spread it on saltine crackers or toast, but Roman Meal wheat bread was my dad’s favorite. There was always a jar of MW in the frig. Nowadays, we use my own home baked whole wheat bread, and true Miracle Whip is only in my frig when I find a really great deal (which I did recently). I sometimes embarrass my family as I stand in the aisles of the grocery store, salivating as I relive culinary memories. Anyone else have that problem, or am I alone here? I am winning my children over – though a few prefer actual ‘mayonnaise’ and only Luke and Dad will eat the onions.
I wonder what special foods and traditions my children will revisit as they are raising their families. It’s gonna be such fun finding out!
