On this particular day, my younger son came home from work at noon because he had an early afternoon follow-up doctor appointment. This was what he fixed for himself to eat.
Sandwich Number One:
Sweet Lebanon Balogna with lettuce and tomato, mayo, and tons of mustard (always tons of mustard) on an oatmeal sandwich bread that I’d test-baked for the bakery.
Sandwich Number Two:
Leftover bacon cheeseburger from the night before, with garden stuff and condiments.
Sandwich Number Three:
A single piece of bread stuffed with balogna, ham, etc.
And then we went to his follow-up doctor appointment where we learned he weighed five-pounds less than he did the week prior and he’s now 6 foot 4.
This same time, years previous: the quotidian (8.31.20), at home, crunch week, the quotidian (8.31.15), the new bakery, walking the line, my mornings.
Thrift at Home
Holy cats! Feeding growing children is serious business!
He has his dad’s smile!
I’m looking forward to feeding five grandsons in the years to come. After raising three daughters.
mmmm, Sweet Lebanon Balogna! Delicious! One of my Lancaster born mother’s favorites <3
I have a 12YO who is six feet and growing. I feed him 3 banana, chocolate and peanut butter shakes a day and he’s 115 lbs. I guess he’ll graduate to sandwiches in a little while?
Their scale if defective. Or else he was wearing 5 lb more of clothing the week prior.
