A Lunch Craving - Tuna Melt Sandwich

For about, mmmm. . . 5 years, from 5th grade to 10th grade, I went on a bit of a 'kick' and I think I ate, or at least requested, a tuna salad sandwich every day for lunch. You would think after 5 years of tuna I would never want it again but, luckily, I rarely tire of any kind of food. Thus, I found myself at home yesterday on a nice rainy Sunday and craving a tuna sandwich.

To create:  Open a can of tuna and mix in a good handful of fresh dill, an indiscriminant amount of mayonnaise, chopped pickles (I'm a sucker for Bubbies brand), diced bell pepper, and salt and pepper. Once combined, pile the tuna salad on a piece of bread and top it off with a generous amount of jarlsberg swiss cheese. Pop it under the broiler for a moment and once it reaches the desired melt-y-ness, enjoy.

It is a personal requirement that tuna sandwiches be eaten with a glass of chocolate milk - I have received some negative responses to this requirement but, for me, it is like eating a burger without a shake - completely unacceptable.

  1. If you ordered a tuna sandwich every day for five years, I'm sure your parents are having twitchy flashbacks seeing this! Looks good to me... what is that, a bagel? Yeah, chocolate milk with tuna sounds gross, but now of course I have to try it. Oh, here's something to amuse you. Once I got a tuna sandwich here in BCN from a sandwich shop. I asked if they could put cheese on it and the woman looked at me as if I'd just popped out of a spaceship and had three eyes. I asked "Isn't it possible?" and she said "Yes, it's possible, but I've never heard of anyone putting cheese on a tuna sandwich before." Yeah, it's a real mind-opener!
