This is a post that I mean to make a very long time ago. I made this while in Santa Monica for Thanksgiving, but have unfortunately been very busy with school, and forgetful. This sandwich started after a night at the UCB. The group I was with had been drinking and we decided a late night trip to the grocery store would be a good idea. While at the grocery store we developed the idea for the next sandwich, The Cure. Unlike the vast majority of sandwiches on this site, this sandwich does not involve ice cream (GASP!). So what is a Cure? Let’s find out:
First we start off with some turkey bacon:
Uncooked turkey bacon.
I received an email the other day, and inside was a guest post! The sandwich is awesomely fancy and the photography is probably the fanciest this website has yet to see. This post is brought to you by the lovely Megan Van Sipe of www.lilacsaloon.com, you should check it out, she sells some fancy things! Enjoy the post below!

Of all of the sandwiches I’ve made so far I think this one is my best. For those of you unaware KFC has a sandwich called the “Double Down“. Instead of using bread for buns KFC chose two chicken patties, in the middle you get special sauce, two slices of cheese, and bacon. Before the Double Down came into existence it was something people would joke about being able to get at a fast food place, now you can. I have yet to have one but the idea is pure genius.
The idea was so good that it made me want to adapt it to a fancy ice cream sandwich, so I did. My idea was to have two slabs of ice cream with some ingredients in the middle, but I wasn’t sure how to do it. I needed a way to get the ice cream in nice retangles. Multiple people told me to just cut the ice cream container into sections to get the pieces I wanted, the problem is I can only find Ben & Jerry’s in pints. So what did I do? I used Ziploc bags!
So my girlfriend is an avid reader of Smitten Kitchen, which is a wonderfully fancy food blog. If you’re like me (which you probably are if you’re reading this), you’ll probably enjoy Smitten Kitchen, it’s fantastic. The reason I mention this is because my girlfriend sent me a link to a recipe a few weeks back, and it was one that I just had to make. The recipe was for homemade pop tarts. Today I had some free time, and money wasn’t too tight, so I went out and bought all the supplies.

This guest post comes from the guys over at Career Purgatory. In case you haven’t been paying any attention this is also the first non-ice cream sandwich to be posted here. Enjoy the guest post below:
This is the type of gourmet sandwich you are capable of making if you have a struggling career and a healthy appetite to drown your sorrows.
To start off I’ve selected a loaf of Rosemary Olive Oil bread that you can find at any Costco and sliced it in half as shown below.

As you can probably tell I just ported everything to WordPress. All the old posts are below. Honestly I am not very pleased with this platform, I will hopefully be switching to my own custom blogging platform very soon. I will make a legit post that has a Fancy Sandwich very soon. Sorry for the delay on posts, I’ve been busy with learning new languages, working, and with school stuff.
