Family Meal Traditions I'd like to see how many of you can recall and share an odd food combination your family practiced, or your own idea of a treat. Such as a peanut butter and pickle sandwich. My dad used to put honey on his cottage cheese. We were too poor to eat out, so when we'd go on long trips, mom would put a piece of balony on top of a sweet roll for us to eat. Then she'd peel an apple and say "here's your apple juice." I still can taste that balony and sweet roll sandwich. She also served saltine crackers with our homemade ice cream so we wouldn't get "brain freeze." We'd use snow to make homemade ice cream in winter time. Serve up some more memories.
