Bubby's Sandwich

Bubby, our oldest son who is 8 1/2, wanted to make his own sandwich for lunch today. I had just cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom. He assured me however, that he would clean up any mess he made so I agreed. I saw him get out the bread, ham and cheese as I was passing through the kitchen on my way to the laundry room. After folding a load of clothes, I made my way back to the kitchen to survey the damage. Sure enough, he made a huge mess. But, he was proudly eating his own creation. Now, when I say creation that is precisely what I mean. It wasn't your ordinary, run of the mill ham and cheese sandwich. However, I didn't know this until he was almost completely done. As he was holding the sandwich up to take a bite I saw this brown goo dripping from the bottom. After he explained what it was I was totally grossed out. In addition to ham and cheese he also added cut up wieners and...are you ready for this.....chocolate syrup! Can you imagine? The worst part is, he ate it. This evening during dinner, he even bragged about it to his dad and offered to make him one. Much to his disbelief though, his dad passed. Oh, and by the way, he was going to add peanut butter but decided not too because "that would have been gross."


  1. Makes perfect sense. Ham cheese and Chocolate syrup. I used to just find things to eat throw them together in a blender and much. MMhmm peanut butter, milk, and eggss.. That was delicous.

    Shane - Your phone should be ringing shortly, the call will be for Garrett from none other than the famour Dagwood Bumsted. Just as soon as Blondie reads your blog to Dagwood regarding Garrett's master piece,he will be calling for the recipe. Dagwood's car pool will have to wait so my favorite comic strip character passes on his new "creation". Nope, I'm not requesting a copy, too complicated for me. Congratulate my nephew for me, give him a hug too....Barbe


Yippee! I love it when you leave me comments. Thanks a bunch. :)
