Tasty Meat!


I arrived at my desk this morning to a special treat - Pennsylvania MEAT! My coworker just returned from a trip to "Amish Country" - which is near where I grew up. He remembered me mentioning how much I missed "Ring Bologna" and "Lebanon Bologna" - two "Pennsylvania Dutch" meat treats.

Ring Bologna (we usually pronounce it "baloney") is similar to a pepperoni, only not as dense. And it comes in a casing that you must peel off before eating. Anytime you are having "company" to your home in South Central Pennsylvania - you always put out ring bologna with your cheese and crackers. It's just not a party without the baloney.


Lebanon Bologna (real PA hicks like me pronounce it "lebnun baloney") is similar to salami but it's sweeter and is used as a luncheon meat for sandwiches. I cannot tell you how many school lunches Mama Bunny packed for me which included a Lebanon Bologna sandwich with mayo and American cheese on white bread. Yummy!!!


And now for the main course ... BEEF!

My best friend in high school ate either a lebanon bologna sandwich or a jelly sandwich for lunch every day for four years. I don't know how she did it, but then my taste buds demand variety!

LOL @ chef - "love of large sausages"!

NOM NOM NOM NOM to each and every one of the guys. Love love love the stud ripping his shirt open.

The various sausages . . . more for you, David! I think I was scarred early in live seeing my father prepare a sandwich of liverwurst, cheddar cheese, and grape jelly on a bagel. Blech.

. . . that should be "earlier in life" of course." Typo.
