I have not had balogna in many years due to dietary restrictions. I recall when I was very young and had a paper route that required me to deliver papers after school. that was when Knoxville’s main paper was an evening paper. Mom packed my lunch for school which was a balogna and cheese sandwich on white with mayo and a extra double balogna with mayo for the paper route. I carried a lunch box which was metal and a thermos bottle that kept my milk cold. I cannot drink milk anymore due to a visit to a buddy of mine’s dairy. Sorta turned me off.
She also packed me on occasion balogna and cheese on plain crackers. At the time, it was gourmet for this young business entrapeneur.
