Mayonnaise sandwich anyone?
You know how some people eat cheese sandwiches - just cheese and mayo between two pieces of bread? Kind of a typical kid lunch item, right? Others like bread and butter, not as a sandwich, just as a snack or side dish. Our Baby Girl has taken a liking - a BIG liking - to what she has termed "mayonnaise sandwiches." Mayo on bread is really what this is. She will pick the soft part of the bread, the part with the mayo on it, out of the slice and eat only that part, leaving the crusts behind. She LOVES it. Not exactly a great start to condiment preferences in life, but what are you going to do? Next week, she'll be onto something else.

Growing up, I remember instead of bread with butter with a meal, my dad liked bread with Miracle Whip. We were a Miracle Whip family. (Mom liked Mayo, but always got Miracle Whip since it is what Dad liked.) I still prefer Miracle Whip, but we buy both since Wife likes Mayo. Every now and then I test the kids to see which they prefer. So far, Boy prefers Miracle Whip and Baby Girl likes both, but requests "Mayonnaise sandwiches."

Where did you grow up? My Louisiana family loves mayonnaise, and I've never heard of anyone else just eating it on a piece of bread. They also eat mayonnaise on crackers - with gumbo or whatever else they're eating. I only like mayonnaise in salads, i.e. tuna salad.

That's funny. We alwyas used Mayonnaise (Hellmans') but once I discovered Miracle Whip I love that too!

Quirky - I grew up in a few states, but my parents primarily grew up in Phoenix, AZ....so if geography has anything to do with it, I would think that would be the influence.

Thanks for reading!

Oh yeah! You just took me back to first grade: Miracle Whip and yellow American cheese on white bread everyday in my school lunch! Hmmm... can't decide now whether it sounds tasty or totally gross...
