Memory Lunch

This lunch is laden with memories. Like the corners of my mind. Misty water-coloured memories.

When I was small we'd drive down to Sydney in the holidays. It was a long drive full of anticipation and wonder at what lay ahead.

We'd go shopping in the city. In the city people! And every time, every single time, we'd have lunch at a little cafe that adjoined Centrepoint Tower and David Jones. And every single time I would enjoy the toasted chicken and cheese sandwiches. With salt and pepper.
That cafe is no longer there, which is a real shame because they made awesome chicken and cheese sandwiches. And if my memory serves me correctly, they had bacon sarnies too, and they were pretty rad too.
From me to you, I highly recommend them. On wholemeal. And of course a smidgen of butter.

If eyeballing next door's chook ends up in something more than eyeballing (cos I'm ravenous), I shall be blaming you.

Oh yum!, my favourite With a little bit of mayo it is even better.

Oh Lexi, I am so glad it is not just me that does memory food. I call it hark back food. (And a personal favourite is scotch eggs and mayo. Eeeee, takes me back.)

Hey those sandwiches look goooood lady. Unfortunately my memory sarnies contain chickenloaf. And McDonalds special sauce. Two things I care not to ingest during my adult life.

Mustn't forget the butter ever. Love this post Lexi, it's funny how often a meal or a certain food brings but other memories. and those sandwiches looks just yum, just good old fashioned food, nothing fancy smancy gourmet jazzy rara, just honest good food.xo
