When in Rome

Remember I told you how everyone, and I mean everyone here has a Friday fish fry?


It's because fish fries are What is Done on Friday.

Apparently, mayonnaise and bacon are also What is Done in Milwaukee. SH and I went to a Vietnamese place last week for some soup and a sandwich. In San Francisco, a Vietnamese sandwich consists of an oven-fresh baguette, roasted pork, pickled carrots, jalapenos and cilantro. It is yummy.

In Milwaukee, a Vietnamese sandwich has all those ingredients plus mayonnaise and bacon.

Which is probably what leads to the Milwaukee roll:


Not that there's anything wrong with that.

My mother still does not 'get it' that Wisconsin is the only place with a 'Friday Fish Fry' on every corner...even though I've not lived in Wisconsin for 24 years, she still asks me every week if we are going out for fish on Friday's totally a cultural thing!!! White-Chocolate
