Eating Crow Sandwich

Kirk | Dec 12, 2004 02:45 PM

Having offered a number of derisive comments about English food (and its derivatives, such as Canadian "cuisine"), I feel the need to post an apology ... and the "recipe" for a sandwich I enjoyed very much today.

The sandwich consisted of toasted black bread (in the case, Russian rye); a few pieces of dry-fried back bacon (the real stuff from Canada, thanks to Costco, which has been selling it in the Dallas area); a liberal amount of Branston pickles, and mustard. The Branston pickles were what "made" the sandwich.

Next time, I might add some lettuce and tomato, but today, the combination of flavors, three kinds of crunchiness, and sweetness and saltiness, were exactly what I wanted in a sandwich.

My apologies to those I may have offended in the past. And my fervent hope that you will someday realize that yeast extract, kidneys and powdered gravy do not a good meal make.
