You got it. Exactly. Well said.


All of the above listed lunches, by various posters.....I remember them well.


However, does anyone think we've taken the joy out of indulging in simple pleasures......such as a tasty nostalgic lunch from the past???

Maybe all we need to do to not feel guilty is to rename the sandwich and quadruple the price. For instance liverwurst, onions, mustard on rye can be renamed

"Braunschweiger Pate on Thinly Sliced Rustic Dark Brioche dressed in Grey Doujon with a Sprinkling of Shallots".

Sounds great ! Love it.

However, nowadays, they would tell you that liverwurst contributes to gout.

I worked for my dad in NE Philadelphia (family owned business) weekends and during the summers. A block away was a dinner, that made the best hamburger. High quality beef, cooked in an oval to fit a great hard Italian roll and some excellent fries. To this day I have not found one as good.

Peppers and eggs were only popular with Italians.
Other than that, most others never would had given peppers and eggs a thought.

Glad you enjoyed it. Hope your team won??? It seems that you both are feeling better & that your appetite has returned.


It's just plain old home cooking.......meat & potatoes.

Actually, it was a Lenten or meatless Friday sandwich.

I know plenty of non Italians who enjoyed it.

Nowadays, it "might" be considered vegetarian as per the green peppers. Don't knock it till you've tried it.

Just a simple "peasant" lunch........which perpetuates down through the generations.........

As a non-Italian, I always liked pepper and egg sandwiches. The mothers of all my Italian friends kept me well fed. However, those who were not as fortunate as I with many Italian friends had no clue about that sandwich. It was almost like a well-kept secret. As a child, it had nothing to do with Lent or not eating meat on Friday; it was made all the time.
