Hodgepodge Sandwich

Man does not live by diet food alone.  I chopped up the last of the pulley-ham, and sauteed with some green onion, then added a beaten egg and cheddar.  When the eggs were done, I slid them onto the last of the homemade sandwich rolls, with a little mayo.  Click on the photo to blow it up (and if your cursor has a + on it, click on the photo again), look at it for 10 seconds, and see if it makes your mouth water a little.

It was outstanding.  The best part is that I was hungry and just went through the fridge to see what was there.  No way I could have intentionally created something this good.

I try to keep advertizing, religion, and politics off my blog, but thought this was cute and generic enough to be ok, and from my perspective, applies to whatever party holds the White House. It came to me from daughter Kathy.

This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occur on the same day.

As Air America Radio pointed out, "It is an ironic juxtaposition of events: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication, while the other involves a groundhog."

I didn't know either:  Juxtaposition

1.  an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, esp. for comparison or contrast.
2.  the state of being close together or side by side.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. I love the political humor. Sending that one along to the hub. And I think we should all use juxtaposition in a sentence three times today. ;-) And last but not least..that sandwich looks amazing. I'm on my third attempt at homemade bread, maybe oneday my blog will be sporting the last of the homemade sandwich rolls.

  2. Ooo, yes your breakfast looks good - the sort of thing I make for brunch, but without the home cooked/cured/barbequed meat. A BBQ is kinda different here - yours seem better!

    The word verification is "fougg" - that is Fog with a fancy accent!

    Sending warm, cosy huggles to all at your lovely home, Michelle xxxx

  3. Oh my lord. That sandwich is one for the books.

    And that is an awesome observation about groundhog day/state of the union address. Maybe if the address were given by a groundhog it would be a bit more useful :P

  4. Hi Larry, Yes--that sandwich on full-screen did make my mouth water... Of course, as much as I love to eat, many things make my mouth water. ha ha

    Cute joke --and very applicable this year... Oops--did I say that???? ha

    Have a great day.

  5. That's one awesome sandwich, Larry.

  6. Larry, It's another great looking sandwich! Of course it helps to have that left over pully ham around as well as homemade buns. Leave off the onion...add a bit of onion power to the eggs and cheese...and I'm in! (It's that 'texture' thing again...)Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  7. Great sandwich Larry and not too political on the joke! Just true. Politicians should get along as well as was we bloggers.

  8. Larry,
    Two things:

  9. Oh sorry, I just drooled on your bad!!

  10. Oooooh you said the "p" word ;)

    If you get bored, google "Juxtaposition photo" for some interesting results.

    Glad you were hungry, that's one hoss of a sandwich!
