On another food note: the Flying Spaghetti Monster has been sighted in cupcakes for sale! : "Grocery Store Delights"

Thanks Deidre. Hope you don't me cutting to the front of the line. As to the pickles, I'm wondering if Cuban sandwiches are an American vs. Cuban invention. Like I said, when in Cuba, I never once had a pickle in one. I know pickles in Cuban sandwiches are ubiquitous in the US.

Joan, at the risk of diving in ahead of Deidre, Cuban sandwiches are delicious. Slice Cuban bread horizontally (like a hoagie roll), and pile on roast pork, ham, pickles and cheese. Oil a large pan and place the sandwich in the pan with a brick or heavy weight on top. Grill for a about 4 minutes per side, till the sandwich is about 1/3 its original height.

On a side note, pickles are used in these sandwiches in the US. About 5 years, I went to Cuba, and while I had several Cuban sandwiches in both Havana, and other places, I never once had a pickle in it. Instead of pickles, they use cured and sliced green olives in the sandwiches. Absolutely outstanding!

Most of the time I have bread made of mixed grain: rye, spelt, wheat, rice, oats or whatever else they can find in the bakery. So it isn't pumpernickel.  And sambal goes with anything; I prefer a mild sambal made with peppers and fried onions.

Deidre, what is a Cuban sandwich? I love Caribbean food.

Pat, I am with you on Spanakopita!

Carl, We have lots of US-Mexican and US-Asian. Very few authentic ones. There is a Lebanese restaurant, but they have turned to US flavors. The Indian restaurant has wonderful food and I don't know if it has been modified by US tastes. 

Randy, I don't care for lamb either, but just about anything Greek tastes good to me. I'll bet you are doing a lot of dream-mining as you remember a year ago in Greece.

Chris, Is sambal on brown bread good? Is the bread like the dark bread of northern Europe? I am thinking of the dark rye , or pumpernickel.

I grew too tired to make a decent meal. Dinner was brown bread with sambal, cheese and tomato and a handful of liquorice I found in the kitchen.

Yogurt, home made granola, and a plum.

Spanakopita!  Mmmmmmmmmm

Randall, no Greek restaurants within walking distance of me but there are plenty to choose from in other neighborhoods.  My immediate area is saturated with Mexican, South American and Korean restaurants.
