Food for Thought: Diagonal Slice
Is it me, or do things taste better when they are sliced diagonally? I remember when I was younger, my mom once made me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that was cut from the top right side to the bottom left side. I took one look at it and thought to myself “Why”? Within seconds after the point of the crust hitting my taste buds, I realized that my mother was a genius. She was somehow able to make the simplest and most favored kid sandwich, even better. From that point forward I was hooked. Whenever someone put a rectangle shaped unsliced sandwich in front of me, I became outraged. I literally would hold my fist up to the air and declare war on the maker, and the contents between the bread. A war that quickly ended with my fists smashing into the face of what I thought to be a culinary atrocity.
I sometimes find myself wondering if the creator of the club sandwich was as into diagonal slices as I am. After all, a club sandwich has 4 diagonally cut pieces. The club is basically the completed Triforce of all sandwiches.
That’s my food for thought for the day. How do you like your sandwiches sliced?
