Club Sandwiches

I like to try just about every food. One food I have never tried is a club sandwich. I worked at a deli for a summer and ate so many sandwiches, but never that double decker that sold so well.

This morning, as I was perusing the menu and trying to decide what would least offend my tender, hungover stomach, I noticed THE CLUB.

The club is one of those foods soon to be obsolete, containing many things on the trendy (and growing!) list of awful food. White bread, processed meat, american cheese, mayonnaise, and bacon. No whole grains, nothing natural about this sandwich except the lettuce. And that was wilted this morning.

Shunning processed foods is tres chic right now. White bread? Please. Make it a whole grain baguette or I'm leaving. Sugar? Hell no, I want evaporated cane juice. And I love it. I can't stand the soft squishy emptiness of white bread. When was the last time you had a Kraft single? I had a burger with one of those pieces of "pasteurized process cheese food" on it and I didn't even finish it. Try holding a piece of deli roast beef up to the light -- it has these shimmering rainbows on it like an oil slick in a shopping mall parking lot.

But I grew up on Kraft Mac 'n Cheese, grilled american cheese on white bread smeared thick with butter, oreo cookies, McDonald's happy meals, and deli meat. I can't stand any of those things now.

So I say goodbye to the club sandwich. It was over for me before it even began. Rating: 1.5 (out of 10).
