Is a hot dog a sandwich?

Sometimes I eat a Rueben sandwich with a knife and a fork.

Bon Appetite says Sriracha's "Totally Over." Agree?

I was reading Bon Appetit before it was cool. I read Saveur now, you've probably never heard of it.

Need suggestions for sides for a raw oyster party

Champagne and stout beer.

Bon Appetit died when Barbara Fairchild left. Since then it is nothing more than a rag reporting on the whims of hipsters and pop culture happenings.

Is a hot dog a sandwich?

Everything that is a filling of some sort, wrapped in starch for ease of eating out of hand is a sandwich. This does not mean that all sandwiches are out of hand friendly.

That being said, even though a Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich is termed a sandwich by it's creator, that does not make it a sandwich. This falls into that open faced "sandwich" question. If anything served on a single piece of bread can be called a sandwich, then is pizza a sandwich? It is just toppings on bread.

Gyro, Reuben and Southern Biscuits & Sausage Gravy -- Lay's Potato Chips....?

A lady in my office brought in a bag of each for us all to try. The consensus was that the Rueben chips were the best. I thought the biscuits and gravy chips were okay. They gyro and truffle fries chips were just weird.

How is a lobster roll not a sandwich? Is a cheesesteak sandwich not a sandwich?

I wouldn't call a tamale a sandwich. I don't think it is intended to be eaten out of hand. Tacos...sandwiches.

How is a tortilla not bread? (Flour + Water) + Heat = Bread.

So Serranos aren't real chiles?

Favorite Mustard for Hot Dogs?

No matter what kind of mustard you put on the hot dog, it remains a sandwich.

It was a Kirkland dog and I think it was $1.50 with a fountain drink included. I filled my cup with Diet Pepsi.

I had a great sandwich at Costco over the weekend. It was an all beef hot dog with deli mustard.

Cuba Libre (Rum and Coke)

You need a recipe for this?

Lent Starts One Week From Today

Catholics fast on Ash Wednesday which is February 18 this year. Then there is no meat on Fridays until Easter. We fast again on Good Friday, the Friday prior to Easter.

Lent Starts One Week From Today

I'm sure every diocese, every bishop, and every parish has a different take on why we eat fish on Fridays.

Lent Starts One Week From Today

The way I learned it was that eating fish was a show of solidarity with the poor. During Jesus's time, only wealthy people could afford to eat meat. You had to either have a lot of land and livestock to kill, or have the money to go and buy meat. Poor people, on the other hand, could drop a line in any lake or stream and catch some fish to eat.

In that case it does seem to be a form of self denial.

It's not sriracha. It's sriracha flavored ketchup.

I've always gotten a kick out of the Catholics who choose to go out and eat lobster on Fridays during Lent. It kind of defeats the purpose of the season.
