I haven't bought typical white bread for 20 years probably, but a few posts lately have me thinking back on the place it has held in my own food life. St Paul sandwiches are made on white bread, and loose meat sandwiches on white bread buns. In St Louis i was served pork steak from roadside grills laid on a slice of white bread, presumably to catch the grease and sauce.
Baloney sandwiches, fried egg sandwiches, or even PBJ's, don't taste the same anymore. Even just a slice of toast, man.
