So many have probably wondered...well maybe not and I am humoring myself....why I haven't posted that many food items. We have had our kitchen counters replaced. My kitchen has been out of commission for about two very lonnng weeks. I never realized how many times I used my kitchen sink till I didn't have one. Using the bathroom sink was not only bordering on gross but made cooking a real challenge. We didn't have our dishwasher or the garbage disposal working. I know many of you may say, "I don't have one either! So what is your problem?" I guess the problem is that I was used to having them so we didn't have the habit of washing dishes, especially in the bathroom sink. We used a lot of paper plates but the kids would invariably forget and get a regular dish. The dishes mounted in the two weeks. Argh!
The dust has been incredible and I have been going nuts!! At last, it is finished and I am putting my kitchen back together. Food will come again and we won't be eating sandwiches for lunch and dinner! However, I have told my kids that we are eating like royalty with our sandwiches. How so? I found a 'rest of the story' on the sandwich sent from a friend. Thought you would enjoy it as well and you can tell your kids that they are eating like royalty when they eat their peanut butter sandwich! :)
The "Rest of the Story" for the lowly sandwich:
Food historians generally attribute the creation of the sandwich as we know it today to John Montague, 4th Earl of Sandwich.
