Weird Food

I tried to have a nice, peaceful lunch yesterday and today, but I caused a bit of a ruckus. Apparently my choice of meal is a little unconventional, even weird to some of my coworkers. I took out 2 pieces of bread and start cutting slices of cheese to put on one piece of bread. Pretty normal. But then I pull out my raspberry jam and smothered it on the other piece of bread. My coworkers who were eating their common spaghetti, salads, and turkey sandwiches start eying my less-than-traditional sandwich. "Are you putting those pieces of bread together? That's weird." "Um, yeah. It's actually quite a fancy food served at sophisticated luncheons in Texas. You obviously wouldn't understand." (I've found that anytime people think something I do or say is "weird" I can just blame it on Texas.) I actually did try this sandwich for the first time at a friend's bridal shower in Austin. It is delicious - so don't knock it until you try it!


  1. I have never heard of that, but hey...I'm game to try anything. It sounds interesting. what kind of bread and cheese did you use?

  2. Depends on the type of cheese. What did you use?

  3. I just use wheat bread, cheddar cheese (mozzarella would probably be good)and raspberry jam - it is so yummy!!
