Comment on California Club with Chipotle Mayo by Malcolm Bedell.

Thanks Trish, that means a lot. Jillian actually found some really great deli turkey with lots of nice texture, not that weird rubbery stuff. I think this sandwich would also be amazing with leftover roasted chicken in place of the deli turkey, but then you’ve got the problem of eating both adult and baby chicken in the same bite, which has been known to give some people a case of the heebiejeebies.

I absolutely ADORE Steakumms, and quite frankly, I’m kind of surprised that I haven’t talked about them on this site before. They were always a lunchtime favorite of my dad’s, who would fry me up two of the grey slabs to go on Wonder bread (which my mom referred to as “squishywhitebread,” pronounced as one word) with a healthy layer of Hellmann’s. Thirty years later, it’s still a favorite, though rare treat. I’ll only allow myself a Steakumm ‘n’ mayo about once a year, though they are also amazing in breakfast sandwiches. Hmmm, I wonder if it’s been a year since my last one, yet.

All in all, I think there’s a post in here, somewhere. 🙂

Thanks Heather! I still have a LOT to learn…but I think I’m getting there! It’s rewarding because it’s so hard. 🙂

True…I never eat fast food more than I do when I am traveling overseas. That “taste of home” is such a comfort.
