The Super Sandwich

The Super Sandwich

When I look back at my childhood memories, there are a few distinct moments, almost like screenshots (keeping it current, snapshots/photo images) that are vivid in my mind of people and places. I can tell you what I wore or what song was playing at an event or moment in time, but will fail in giving you a year or telling you how old I was. I can even still hear the jingling of my mother’s favorite gold bangles as she entered a room; you always knew when she was approaching. Even stronger memories are tied to certain smells, such as the scent of Greece, the motherland of my parents. We would land every summer into the Athens airport and walk off the plane into paradise. It is something magical and unique to experience.

Taming the School Lunch Beast

Back-to-school season conjures up awesome memories of my sisters and me buying our school supplies that—of course—had to be color coordinated to our folders (Trapper Keepers) and notebooks. Do kids do that anymore? Anyway, back to school also means back to structured schedules, hurried mornings, and school lunches.

So how do we stay on course with a nutritious diet while hitting the road?

Thoughts of a “Sandwich Child”

I have three older siblings and one younger sibling, and all of us were home-schooled. My dad worked nights most of the time. My mom worked from home, on top of home-schooling each of us. Throw in all the extracurricular activities and needless to say, life was hectic. My name is Kevin Fodrey, and I was a sandwich child.
