Same law in Canada way back then too.....definitely odd.

What a strange law, Sk8eycat, forbidden to sell yellow margerine, or in sticks. Why was that?

Comment by sk8eycat on June 14, 2014 at 1:26pm

I think I was born with a sensitivity to peanuts...PB & J or just PB on hot toast always gave me a stomach ache...Mom tried to get me to eat it a lot during WW2 when other forms of butter were rationed.  Never worked for me.  I was a weird kid...couldn't tolerate cows' milk very well, either.  They had to find a dairy that sold goats' milk... I can use it for cooking; the higher the butterfat content, the better.

Then when I was 12 or 13 I was cursed with orthodontia...lost my "taste" for everything sticky

I never use margarine for anything. (Does anybody else remember when it was against the law to sell yellow margarine, or in sticks?  You had to add your own food coloring, or it came with the margarine, but in a separate capsule thingy...mom had a mold that formed the sticks after she finished mixing the color into the white crud.)

I use real butter on toast and veg, and corn oil for cooking.

Felaine, my mother has made lentil spaghetti sauce.  Quite good, actually.  

Randall, I agree, celery coated with PB is great.  Was a favorite of mine as a kid.

Felaine, wonderful remembrances of the Polar Palace from so many people. What an enchanted childhood!

My favorite sandwich is Reuben, piled high with homemade sauerkraut, German mustard with the mustard seeds, home-grown horseradish slices, and of course, the piles of corned beef, Swiss or Gruyère cheese on marble rye bread. Cary makes a great Thousand Island dressing.

Despite just eating (breakfast), my mouth is watering from reading about peanut butter and meatball sandwiches! But not on white bread anymore. I simply love peanuts--in shell, plain, buttered, with or without jam or honey, etc. Celery coated with PB is wonderful!

Yes. Meatloaf sandwiches are best after at least a day in the fridge. Especially with mustard on rye bread. As to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I never did eat the things, even as a kid. Loved the peanut butter (crunchy style), but no thanks to the jelly. I do like jams and jellies, just not with peanut butter.

Lentil soup is great - yummy little eyeballs.

Comment by sk8eycat on June 14, 2014 at 1:32am

I forgot to mention two vital details about meatloaf sandwiches: a) the meatloaf is better when it's been cooked and then refrigerated for about 24 hours, THEN sliced.  And b). if you makeg it out of anything besides beef, or a pork and beef mixture, add an extra egg, bread crumbs (or rolled oats) with melted butter (I use Panko bread crumbs).  Holds together MUCH better.  (I detest lentils. Nasty little eyeballs.)

I remember ´bread with contentment´ best, my mother was really generous with that. You got it with every meal: first the bread with cheese (mother watching like Cerberus how you sliced the cheese), then bread with jam scraped thin, after that bread with contentment.  It means a three days old slice of bread with margerine scraped very thin.

Ah, I kind of like peanuts, but they don't like me, nor does peanut butter.  Pity; it' supposed to be the food of last resort for diabetics.

The best meatloaf sandwiches I ever had were from the coffee shop at the Hollywood Polar Palace...they were grilled with cheese, dill pickles, the usual burger trimmings, on whole wheat bread.  Pity the rink burned down in 1963.
