Tough cuisine when times were lean
Tough cuisine when times were lean

Reddit.com recently posted responses to the most depressing meal you’ve ever made for yourself and some of the responses were pretty sad. But it did remind me of a lean cuisine staple growing up as a kid: mayonnaise sandwiches. Yup. Two pieces of Wonder Bread lathered up with mayo. Hey, when the bologna ran out for the week in our house that’s all we had to work with. Some of the other faves on Reddit were as follows:

  • “While squatting in an empty apartment I once boiled up pasta in a mop bucket and ate with a screwdriver.” Also known as Bucket de Bepo.
  • “My roommate and I ate bag of stale Doritos that came with our apartment.” Also known as “stoners.”
  • “I loved a poor man’s steak sandwich and tomato soup. The steak sandwich is A-1 sauce on a piece of white bread. The tomato soup is a bowl of hot ketchup and water.” Also known as a good salesman.

Anyone who went to college for any length of time remembers the Ramen Noodles we cooked up in the “hot pots” we weren’t supposed to have in our dorm rooms. But what’s strange is how we sometimes still kind of crave those spartan treats. I still catch myself spreading a layer of Hellman’s on a piece of bread every now and again. Is it a nod to the lean times of the past or is it a reminder of what I may eat again in the future if life takes a wrong turn? Then again, maybe I just like mayonnaise on white bread. Bon Appetit.
