Making sandwiches is serious business

humor, picky eaters, tips | September 10, 2012 | By


So after posting the complaint about Subway’s method of making sandwiches, I figured that would be the last time I posted about how to put together a sandwich. After all, to each his/her own, right? 

But this is kind of genius. 

One piece of circular deli “meat” is rarely enough, but if you put on two, then you’re left with cornes of chewy crust without any filling. 

Slice each in half and cover all your bases, though? Success! 

Chocolate ice cubes – Spice up and choclify your drink

Chocolate ice cubes for cold chocolate milk with coffee or slushie

Oh yes they did. At first, I just thought it was a clever way of making chocolate milk. It’s definitely a great way to keep the milk cold all the way to the bottom instead of making it halfway through a glass and realizing it’s room temperature.

Instead, though, this isn’t just chocolate. This particular variety has dark chocolate and instant coffee with vanilla milk for a sweet treat instead of plain ol’ chocolate milk. It was also mentioned to play around with other ingredients like pepper for a kick of spice. Yum.

Chocolate ice

  • 200ml milk
  • 50ml water
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee (optional)
  • 70g dark chocolate (66%)

Milk with Vanilla

  • 600ml milk
  • 60g sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod

Full instructions for making each are at The Mixer. If Google doesn’t automatically translate it for you, there’s an option on the right-hand side to put it in English.

How to eat on the go with kids – Fast food bento boxes?

Use an art supply school organizer to hold hamburger, fries, apples, drink, and sauces from a fast food restaurant like McDonald's

You know how it is eating fast food on the go. Sure, cars usually have a drink holder, but what about for the rest?

If your kid can barely keep food on his/her plate when sitting still at a kitchen table, how can you expect them to juggle a burger, fries, sauces, and getting a drink every so often on a tiny uneven lap in a moving vehicle? You can’t.

Lookie What I Did got this little basket for a buck at a dollar store and I’m sure we’ve all seen them for art or craft supplies….or they’re synonymous with showering in college dorm rooms considering you have to carry your own toiletries back and forth.

Why not keep a couple of these organizers in the car to make chowing down on the go even easier, too? Nobody likes cleaning up ketchup off the backseat, after all. I can’t help you prevent the splatterings on the roof, though….not that I’ve ever had to deal with those exploding ketchup packets in the backseat before or anything…
