I know this is gonna sound weird (following on from yesterday’s prompt)…
But my favourite sandwich is a raw mushroom sammich.
Just bread, butter, and sliced raw mushrooms.
I don’t remember when I started making them—probably as a teenager when there was nothing else to eat that appealed because I was vegetarian and my family was not.
They’re great. I understand why people look at me strangely, but I love them. They kind of remind me of cold chicken sandwiches back before I was vegetarian. Not sure why.
Possibly because everything tastes like chicken…
Anyway, set a timer for 5 minutes and write about your favourite sammich. Not just the sammich, but why you love it.
When you first made and ate it.
What it means to you—if anything—other than a means of inserting calories into your body.
And how, if it’s a bit weird, you’d persuade someone else to try it.
