My Mother's People  
Thinking about food.

My mother's people were mayonnaise people. They were Rainbo bread, eggs fried in bacon grease, mash potatoes with flour gravy people.

Because they lived in the Central Valley they did eat a lot of fresh produce. At least my grandfather did. The tomatoes and artichokes were eaten with mayonnaise. The cantaloupes were salted. The only kind of lettuce I ever saw in their house was iceberg.

My grandfather's sandwich:
- peanutbutter
- mayonnaise
- iceberg lettuce
- salt and pepper
- on white bread
I think he would have a glass of milk with it. It was eaten on a TV tray, in the living-room, on the davenport.

I grew up eating mayonnaise sandwiches on white bread.

With peanutbutter??? To tell true, I like them. The only time I got to eat white bread was at my grandparent's house. I discovered that I loved bologna on white bread with catsup.

Another decendant of the mayonnaise people
I enjoyed your photos. I remember the bacon grease eggs.
