G and I have been watching all the past episodes of Andrew Zimmern. He’s my favorite now that Anthony Bourdain is gone. I get to learn about the food, the history and the people.
So, I can see what you’re thinking. What on earth does that have to do with fried bologna? When I was growing up, this was my dad’s favorite sandwich.
Healthy? Hell, no. But, for many people all over America during and after the Depression, this was a big deal. I know, what am I doing serving green beans with it. I love green beans. You may not want to watch it being made, but it’s no worse than a hot dog.
I think we have a tendency to give our food too much snob appeal. As someone who has battled my weight my whole life, maybe it’s time to learn a few lessons, i.e., let’s eat to live and not live to eat.
*****From the Recipe Box:
Next time we would cut the bologna about 1/2 inch thick and at least 4 to 5 inches in diameter.
Now I want to try mortadella.
and remember what Steve Martin had to say: “A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”
