My dad used to say that if you couldn't put dinner in a sandwich it was probably not dinner.

He made an exception for casseroles (where the bread was more of a mop than a container) but for most of my childhood two slices of white-and-buttered were constant tea-time companions.


We didn't eat out much. When we did, I noticed the ham steak came with a pineapple ring, and the regular steak was stuck with blue-and-red plastic cows (my dad liked his meat medium rare).
