Pickles and Mustard Sandwich...Anyone??

Today we were driving home from picking up the kids free Pizza Hut "Book It" pizzas. Sign up for the fall - homeschoolers can take part in it.

Some how we got on the topic of the lunch dd made for her dad today. "I couldn't find any sandwich meat" she said. So I asked her what she did. "I just put on mustard and pickles". I thought perhaps she was joking b/c she likes to tease me and get me riled up about such things (hmmm wonder where she learned to do that??). She was serious. "Are you sure there was no sandwich meat?" I asked..."You should have told me b/c we could have at least made him a PB&J sandwich or I could have taken something out of the freezer". "Well there either wasn't any or I was too tired to see it" she continued.

I make a special trip to the grocery store for sandwich meat so that poor pops won't have two days of bread/pickle slices (4 per sandwich)/mustard sandwiches. At least it was some tasty homemade bread.

We buy the meat. I put it away in the fridge...look around for about 2 seconds and find the sandwich meat that was in fact, there, in the morning when the girl made her dad's lunch.

She was sorry. Probably not as sorry as a dad eating a pickle and mustard sandwich on whole-wheat. I called dh to ask if something was missing from his sandwich. The girl said I should not have told him b/c "maybe he wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it". :)

That's cute. I know how she feels in the morning. :)

I remember my grandma eating peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and it made me want to gag!
