In California, you can’t take two steps without tripping over an avocado.  Good thing, too, because leftover guacamole makes for an excellent sandwich addition.  This ‘wich was most energizing after a snowy Tahoe ski day.

Heart Shaped Sandwich

Heart shaped sandwich

Valentine’s Day holds a special crappy place in my heart as a day of the year where I don’t get to eat a lot of sandwiches. Bless the cooks at the Google cafeteria, though – they felt my pain and gave me a handmade pork cutlet breakfast biscuit sandwich. The heart not only commemorates the special day of the year, but also the love that the cooks put into this delicious treat. Also, my inevitable death from heart failure. Mmm.

 P.S – Happy birthday, Drew!

Brain Sandwich

This summer I visited Ferguson’s Pub in St. Louis, pursuing the holy grail of sandwich related journalism: the Brain Sandwich. This massive chunk of beef brain has been increasingly hard to find, due to fears of Mad Cow disease and general disgustingness, but St. Louis remains blissfully willing to consider the following as edible:

Brain Sandwich 001

Not much in the way of ingredients, the brain sandwich overwhelms a couple of pickle slices and two small pieces of rye (destroyed by the hard deep fried texture of the brain like wooden ships against a rocky coast). Onions are supplied for those inclined…

Brain Sandwich 002

The sandwich itself is remarkably tasty at first – the edges have a high surface area to mass ratio, meaning you get a lot of deep fried goodness per mouthful of brain. However, as you get deeper into the organ, it starts to squirt fluid into your mouth with each bite, and the texture becomes much wetter and less crunchy. As you reach the middle of the sandwich, the realization that you’re eating undercooked brain replaces any remaining enjoyment with a wholly blanketing nausea.

I’m looking forward to my inevitable case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy.

It was either this Ira or the Monte Cristo, and I think I got the better half of that deal, tentacled nature of this sandwich notwithstanding.  I can’t seem to find an official list of ingredients, but it looked like onions, tomatoes, a generous mass of mozzarella on rye.  I can’t remember if bacon was involved or not.

Is a burger a sandwich?

Is a burger a sandwich? I’m going to say sure, if it contains two types of lettuce, tomato, red onion, mayo, sweet relish, and chipotle tabasco sauce. Thankfully, this fits the bill.
