Have to give equal time to the Italians!! Now MY childhood memories are 
from my Italian side, and the heavier Italian influence (pun intended) 
in this area. Grilled Italian sausages w/onions and peppers on a bun 
(hopefully a Piantedosi bun - made here in Malden).
The main purpose of frequenting Revere Beach way, way back was to get 
sausages. (for me, it was NEVER to ride that scarey, rickety roller 
coaster). Mmm. Today, just about the only remnant of the old (Boston's 
Little Italy) North End are the festivals (and they are, I'm told, 
nothing like the ones years ago when the North End residents were 
actually mostly Italian), where one can still get some great sausages. 
I can cook my own, but somehow it's not the same.
Mmm - can smell them

I can only dream. Where I grew up, we didn't have any Italian  
community. We had a lot of Poles and Hungarians, though, so getting  
good sausage was easy in my town. There's still one place there  
(South Bend) that makes good kielbasa, and I keep intending to get  
some when I visit--but it's always late, out of my way, and so on. I  
feel the same way, though, about kielbasa that I am sure you do about  
Italian--that stuff you get at the MegaMart isn't even close to what  
you had as a kid. Not that we view those times through rose-colored  
glasses or anything. :)
