A perfect lunch today: cucumber sandwich made from a just-bought, still warm baguette. Spread one side with super fresh unsalted butter & the other side with fresh ricotta, then tiled that side with angled slices of cucumber sprinkled with salt & pepper.
I can go with that. Sounds delicious. Makes me look forward to the home grown cues.
Sounds like "Cup-O-Soup" with added veg. Celery would be a great improvement. We give all our guests some sachets of quick soup and also one pot noodles incase they get hungry later on in the evening and pizza deliveries are closed. If I can't find anything appealing in the fridge I start looking in my store cupboard for noodles and throw in some veg even if its frozen peas, which incidentally make a Ham & pea soup sachet quite delicious.
I had a jar of rollmops for lunch, especially when I saw that the jar had expired in January. It passed the sniff test, and they were delicious as usual. The only reason it took so long to eat them was because they were in the back corner of the refrigerator.
I made crab salad sandwiches for lunch. I would have made my usual tuna sandwiches, but I discovered that my stack of crab tins in the cupboard was now higher than my stack of tuna tins. This said, it must be admitted that tinned crab is rather tasteless and tuna makes a far better sandwich.
I also noticed, somewhat to my dismay, that if we were to go into total lockdown again and they closed the supermarkets this time, I might be the last person in my building not to die of starvation. Nobody should have so much food on hand.
I had Spam for lunch yesterday (actually the Dutch Zwan) -- a true blast from the past. Actually it didn't taste bad, but I suspect that it was made from things that even the hot dog companies would reject.
I don't think there is anything icky in Spam except for the stratospheric amount of salt. It's actually a fairly clever product, meant to deliver that ham experience cheaply & easily. It appears to have been embraced in preference to ham in many places.
