Famous Featured Sandwich-Eater

Back in July of 2005 year, a month after I discovered blogging, I was led to a site called "Self Portrait Day" by a blogger pal (you know who you are!). I was notified via email today that they got around to posting my portrait. Be forewarned that since I posted my picture there, the site seems to have taken a turn for the worse... don't browse the photos with youngsters nearby. Some of the pictures are a bit 'liberal'. They have done something strange with the site since I submitted my photo 8 months ago. Somehow while they changed the format my sandwich information was lost (which was one of my favorite parts of the site's intrigue). So I thought I'd share not only the link to my photo over there (you may have to scroll a few pages to find it?), but I'd also share the information they lost (#1 below).

Here's a list of my favorite sandwiches in order:

1. Manny Hattan's Ebbots Field Knish ($9.95 and worth every penny)... Grilled turkey & onions, bell pepper, jalapeno & jack cheese wrapped in a light and fluffy potato pastry... TIME FOR A ROAD TRIP! It's like Texas meets New York. I get to eat these ever-so rarely... it's a form of torture to know they exist and I can't have one (...maybe God's punishment for past sins or something).

2. Is a taco a sandwich? Chipotle's build your own burrito is awesome - even without the tortilla (burrito bol).

3. Sprittibee BLT: Crisp Microwaved Turkey-Bacon, Egg, Cheese, Lettuce, Mayo with a dash of Cayenne and Salt... maybe some pepper, too. These are a staple in my house. My kids love them as much as I do. They are very versatile... breakfast, lunch or dinner.

4. Cumin Falafels with thinly sliced hot pickles, cucumber-yogurt sauce, Romaine Lettuce in a Wheat Pita

5. Shwarma - Chicken or Falafel

6. Grilled Cheese with a bowl of Campbell's Tomato Soup to dip it in (yumm!)

7. Jason's Deli's Ranchero Wrap

8. Tea Room Chicken or Egg Salad Sandwiches... (still searching for the perfect recipes)

9. Baloney on Wheat with Mayo and about 20 crunched up Nacho Cheese Doritos!

10. Arby's Beef 'N' Cheddar (dripping with cheese) - OK, this is really not healthy. Come to think of it, neither are a lot of these... oh, well. A girl has to eat.

So there you have it. The most important information you'll come across on a homeschool blog this week. Hands down. Everyone loves sandwiches. Stop over at Self Portrait Day and let the world know what kind you like to eat. Maybe by next July, you'll be famous like me.

There's a good-looking recipe for Coronation Chicken Salad on
It's a popular dish/sandwich served in the tea houses in England. Although I remember it with peas rather than raisins...? Printing out a copy for myself to do a taste test with the fam.

Don't feel bad, they lost my explanation of how I discovered the Internet. I think they are just trying to consolidate things on the site so that it will be easier to browse. I should have insisted that I not only discovered the Internet, but that I invented it! :p

OH MY GOSH I LOVE Chipotle's burrito bowl! Do they have Chipotle's where are you are now? And Arby's plain roast beef samich with tons of their arby's sauce, I drink it out of the packet. ;) lol

Sprittibee said...

Erin - Please do share the recipe. I'm always on the look out for a good one. I have made Chicken Salad a good many different ways... never the same way twice!

Firefly - You and Al Gore! ;)

Sara - Chipotle is a bad topic for me. I don't really like talking about it. I might need Prozac. I'm pretty sure I'll get to have some in MAY when I go to Dallas... so NO, they don't have one here. I'll have to pass on the Arby's Sauce. I do like the "horsey" stuff (horseraddish) and Loooove that drippy, highschool-concession-stand nacho cheese they pour on those things. Another sauce that is really good is Popeye's Mardi Gras Mustard. I have no idea if I spelled that right. Where's the Terrible Speller when you need her?

Recipe follows. Rave reviews from my husband. However, I broke out in hives after eating it- was it the curry or the mango chutney? I guess hubby will be eating the leftovers solo.

Coronation Chicken

Category: Whole Chicken
Serves/Makes: 4 | Difficulty Level: 3 | Ready In: 2-5 hrs

1 cooked chicken
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon mild curry powder
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
1 tablespoon apricot jam
1 tablespoon mango chutney
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup cream

Carefully remove the skin from the chicken; cut chicken into bite-size pieces and set aside.

Heat the oil in a small saucepan and fry the onion until wilted and pale gold. Add the curry powder and stir. Remove from heat and mix in the tomato sauce, apricot jam and mango chutney. If there are pieces in the jam or chutney, chop these very small first. Transfer to a basin and cool. Stir in the mayonnaise.

Whip the cream until it holds soft peaks; gently fold into the other mixture a little at a time. Pour about 1/3 of sauce over the base of a serving dish and spread out thinly. Place some chicken on top and repeat the layers, finishing with sauce.

Chill for at least two hours.
