Ham sandwich with mayo and white bread so fresh it’d gum up on the underside of your front teeth. Ah, those were the days, still my favorite kind of sandwich but I’d like to think I more sophisticated now, grilling ham and cheese and toasting rye, or pumpernickel, still with mayo, but also a little dab of creole mustard.
We also had sandwiches made with variety pack cold cuts, bologna, salami, pressed ham, and olive loaf, with the pressed ham being my favorite. Few months back I had this bizarre urge to taste olive loaf again, and got the smallest serving (1/4 lb?) of Boar’s Head olive loaf I could buy, at the grocery deli. With mayo and white bread, it wasn’t bad, and brought back a flood of memories.
