Re: Happy new year....

The whole point about being out of the EU, and the only reason I voted Leave, is that we can now cut our sandwiches any way we like. 😀

Re: Happy new year....

Now I'm being reminded of some of the weird sandwiches we had as kids.

Dad loved banana sandwiches - which was probably something to do with the fact that there was an import ban on them during the last war. Bananas that is, not sandwiches. Mum would always be running short of something or other so lemon curd would appear from time to time in between two slices.  

Did it get better, well no not really as during my 'just left home and fending for myself' period' fried bread sandwiches were often a good cure for those tummy rumbles.

Weird? Banana sandwiches?

NO NO NO....... one of the best butties you can have, along with a fried egg sarnie (strange how a buttie becomes a sarnie when the filling changes).

But talk about weird, my dad used to put sugar on lettuce.

Re: Happy new year....

A fried egg sandwich had to be just right. Somewhere between rubber and runny. Get it wrong and it was either messy or just plain horrible.

@billnotben 

I believe that in the armed forces they call them an egg banjo, or is that just with bread rolls. 

@Mayfly 

As kids, a friend of mine would have bread a butter sandwich sprinkled inside with sugar.

Re: Happy new year....

Mucky fat, what's that?

Back in to 50's we used to have beef dripping on bread sprinkled with salt, but never hear of it now.
