Sea Urchin Sandwich

I'm not usually too crazy with my sandwich preferences, but I had high hopes for this sandwich tonight:

I'm sad to say-- as adorable as it looks, this sandwich made of sea urchin, delicious bread and some other things sort of tasted like used sponges and horseradish. Better luck next time?

After School Special

I made the classic after school special combo: cheese sandwich and tomato soup. Didn't make the tomato soup, that's Campbell's tomato basil you see in that mug. The sandwich has mozzarella, parmesan, feta, and then I added some basil to that, too. That's called making your foods complement each other. Someday I'll teach you how to be that awesome.

Also, doesn't this seem like a lot of food to feed a kid after school? That kid just ate lunch, and dinner is just around the corner. Although, to be fair, my after school special growing up was a huge bowl of mint chip ice cream while watching Batman: The Animated Series.

Advantage: Strach.

Best Post of This Blog So Far

Yo. v.DANGER spitting at you here. You wanna talk sandwiches? LET'S TALK SANDWICHES. An associate of mine put together the pictured sandwich a few moments ago using only items that were in my kitchen. Here's the key info:

Ingredients: La Brea Bakery olive loaf bread, Whole Foods cilantro and pumpkin seed pesto, Whole Foods red pepper hummus (the King Cobra of hummuses), red onions, cherry tomatoes, basil, spinach, and slices of granny smith apple.

Verdict: Delicious.

Practice safe sandwiching.

Totally Delicious Sandwich

Tonight I made a sandwich of pan-fried halloumi, chopped and sauteed broccoli rabe with garlic, and roasted cherry tomatoes on a warm baguette. You heard that correctly: I fried cheese before putting it on a sandwich. It was fantastic.

Big Bear

We stopped at Kujo's BLT Restaurant in Big Bear.

Sandwiches ordered: BLT, BLT Burger, Turkey Bacon Sandwich, Veggie Sandwich. Satisfaction varied. The main thing I remembered was that our waiter spoke in an indistinguishable accent and when one order was changed very slightly at the last minute, he got frustrated and forgot all our orders.

One member of the party got sick afterward, but it's unclear whether we can blame Kujo or not.

Also in Big Bear, me and a friend made a bunch of sandwiches with all the leftover food in the house. One of these was a prosciutto and apple sandwich, which may sound interesting, but I have a feeling that like all sandwiches containing apple slices, the diner will conclude, "Yeah, this would have been way better without the apple."
