Hey, me too.
Ever had a 'Bread, Butter and Sugar' sandwich when you were a kid? That was another 'po folk' food staple (at least in Chicago).
The darnedest thing is though, I didn't know we were poor :-)
Never had that, but my favorite dinner food growing up was pinto beans and cornbread, which should set our economic strata for you. LOL
Have you ever had a 'Wish Sammich'?
I have those every once in a while...having two pieces of bread and "wishing" you had something to put in between 'em ;)
OMG my grammy used to make my sister and I butter and sugar sandwiches and then those orange "circus peanuts" for a snack. Its a wonder neither of us ended up diabetics. LOL
Wonder Bread, butter and suger. One of the best. Almost as good as Peanut butter and sliced bananas.
How about a butter, sugar from Pixie Stix, Captain Crunch cereal sandwich--and a Coke to wash it down.
*grin*...Close, but I'm from the South, so I had my butter and sugar in a homemade biscuit. I liked 'em best when mother would poke a hole in the front edge and stuff the butter and sugar in there...didn't drip, or drop sugar as bad that way. : )
It's just plain bread, spread with plain butter as usual, then sprinkled all over with colored nonpareils - they call them "100s and 1000s."
