Juggling about a thousand things I want to get out of the way before the Auto Show next week, and of course none of them are finished. What to do?
When in doubt, pause and eat a sandwich. Here’s a good one:
- barbecued pulled pork (homemade, or the good kind from the butcher’s. The kind in the tub at the grocery store is way too salty.)
- potato chips (Ruffles or other thick, wavy chips)
- low fat ranch dressing
- 100% whole wheat buns or sandwich thins or flatbreads
Heat the pork almost to the boiling point, and pile it on a whole wheat bun. Make one sandwich at a time! Do not use too much pork– you want the sandwich to be compact, not overflowing. If you are feeling healthy, use one of those thin sandwich buns or a flatbread. The crust ends of a loaf of whole wheat bread will work in a pinch, but regular sliced bread is not tough enough. Do not use white bread. That would be disgusting. Drizzle on a little of the low fat ranch dressing, and at the very last minute add the potato chips. Don’t put them on and pour yourself a drink, let the dogs out, or move a pile of old car magazines off your chair. Put them on and eat the sandwich immediately while the chips are still totally crunchy. Serve with a tall rum and coke with lots of lime juice.
If you are still hungry, make another sandwich. Then fill in the corners with some Greek yogurt. Put some fruit in it Pineapple is particularly nice.
There. Don’t you feel better about everything?
