Growing up, we didn’t have a whole lot of money. Dinners out were reserved for very special occasions, my mom would go to the meat market once a month to stock up, and there were long stretches where PB sandwiches were the norm…I still remember very clearly one afternoon, sitting down and opening my brown paper bag to find a cheese sandwich in there. Apparently we’d run out of peanut butter, and since hot lunch wasn’t an option, I got a cheese sandwich. To this day, I feel guilty that I lied to my dad about eating it, and instead threw it away.
