I was talking with YouKneek over on her thread at LibraryThing (starting about message 275) and we got sidetracked onto what our ratings would be if they were sandwiches.
I through out a whole range off the top of my head but once I was done I realized, this was a subject worthy of a serious blog post. Food is serious business and so is rating books. And considering that I’m Mister Serious, it all fit together, like a toe in a sock in a steel toe’d boot!
So without further ado, I present My Ratings as Sandwiches!
1) Anchovies and (your favorite) Cheese on Toast
This is a picture of ricotta cheese (not my favorite btw) and anchovies on toast. The mere sight turns my stomach!
2) Peanutbutter and Jelly
I ate this from 2000 until almost 2010 everyday for lunch. It was economical, easy to change up (different jelly every week) and I loved crunch peanutbutter. Now however, I will go hungry rather than eat one of these. I burned myself out on them and I’ve never recovered from it.
3) Turkey bologna and cheese
I use wheat bread instead of white bread (because I’m not a racist!) but this pretty much looks like a bologna sandwich I’d make. Relatively cheap, not for every occasion but giving my body all the fuel it needs during a work day.
4) Toasted tomato sandwich
Toast, mayo, salt and pepper and then sliced up summer tomatoes. Yummmy!
5) Reuben on rye but with turkey bacon instead of sauerkraut
I don’t have a reuben very often. 2-3 times a year at most but I savor them when I do have them. Something about the rye bread just hits my tastebuds square on.
I hope you’re hungry now.
