I've been slacking off with the Creative Questions, but I'm willing to bet that I'm the only who noticed. Instead of every week, I think I'll change it up to every two weeks. And although no one has joined in yet, I'll still keep it the link exchange up in case anyone decides to give it a try.
I love to eat. I mean, really, it is any surprise seeing as how the last Creative Question was also about food?
What are your two favorite sandwiches?
1. Patty Melt. Have you had one? Would you believe I had my first patty melt when I was 20 years old? It's like I grew up in the boonies or something. (FYI, I did.) I still remember that petty melt like I had just eaten it yesterday. Crispy and buttery, juicy and melty. Aw yeah. DJ's Greek Diner in Covina, thank you. Thank you.
2. Turkey with Cranberry Sauce. I loves me the turkey and cranberry sauce sandwich. I love it when I make it at home, I'd love it when you make it at your home, I love it from Quiznos, I love it from the deli on the corner, I love it in the chain restaurants, I even love it at Blimpies. Yes, it's true, I even love it at Blimpies.
And because now I'm drooling a little bit, let me just add my honorable mentions:
1. The French Dip. Who can resist this? Not I, said the hippo. Tender thin slices of beef on soft and sometimes crusty bread, dippping, nay, soaking each bite into warm savory au jus. Oh my gosh, I think I gotta go to Bobby Cadillac's now - it's the best your gonna get on Saipan. But if you want a patty melt, trust me, go to Wild Bill's - don't forget to ask for rye, it's not standard.
2. Reuben. Have you ever smelled a Reuben? I had never heard of a Reuben sandwich until I was 18 and hung over in my dorm room late one morning when my roommate and her boyfriend walked in and the combined smell of the corned beef and sauerkraut was enough to set my stomach churning. It was not a pretty sight. For the next several years, I stayed away from the Reuben like it was a sandwich devised by the devil himself. (Perhaps that isn't the best analogy.) But then one day, not too long ago, I saw James eat one. And no matter what delicious food I have in front of me, James's food always looks better. He so graciously let me taste his devil sandwich and, oh my, it was good. Yes, it was good.
I do have more exciting Creative Questions planned. But right now I have eating on my mind....
