I think you'll be happy this posting doesn't include a photograph. Do you really want to see what a cheese mayonnaise sandwich looks like? Don't forget to butter the bread if you try this out.

Butter always makes things better, even adding it to croissants ;)

I have had many cheddar cheese and Miracle Whip sandwiches, some with lettuce on them and sometimes not. Don't need all the garnishments.

Was "cress", which I assume to mean water cress, more available back then? I remember seeing it more in brooks when I was younger than today, but maybe I was just around more brooks when I was younger...

Now I am hungry. Nothing better than a mayonnaise and sliced cheese sandwich on white bread. Even better if it is toasted with butter on the outside of the bread slices. And when it is fresh tomato season, add slices of tomatoes.
I can do without the chopped cress and shredded celery.

I have my mother in law's mayonnaise maker. A tall glass jar with a metal plunger. The glass has instructions for adding 2 Tb vinegar or lemon juice, tsp. of salt, mustard, sugar, and dash of pepper. It is when you add the 1 pt of Wesson Oil, that you begin to think mayonnaise might not be very healthy.

Back in the day people worked a lot harder than we do now with all our modern conveniences. Caloric lunches were necessary for most adult jobs, No automatic clothes washers, wood for heat, walking to school and back, and all those other memories you have of the "good ol' days."
I remember my mother, 112 pounds, collecting sheets off all the beds on Monday morning, down to the basement and into the Maytag, then feed into a the wringer and into a very large wicker basket. Then up the basement stairs with the basket of wet stuff, down 5 steps into the yard, shake and hang. If it looks like rain, quickly remove, into basket, and onto the porch until it passed and then back onto the line. This does not include ironing the all cotton sheets. Cotton clothing was dampened with a starch and water mixture and rolled up for Tuesday ironing. Oh yeah, go make the beds with the clean sheets. Glad I was in school. Does not include cooking meals for a family of 6.

We had water cress in our creek. Used to pick it and use it all the time.
