Favorite Things Friday - Favorite Snack.....

For this particular Favorite Things Friday, I am VERY glad that Sweet Girl is an adult. Otherwise the child protection folks might get their hands on this and come take her away from me.

I'm going to post something in this blog that is my favorite snack, and I don't think even my SISTERS know about it. Hubby certainly doesn't. It's one of those things I only eat in secret, because it's too bizarre for anyone in my closest circles to know.

Except for you, my dear reader(s). I feel confident enough in our relationship that I can reveal something to you that I tell no one else.

One of my favorite snacks in the world is a.....

....Catalina sandwich.

As in Catalina salad dressing. On bread. Nothing else. Except maybe that really thick BBQ bread (the kind you tear apart, not the already-sliced kind).

Preferably the entirely-bad-for-you white bread, the fresher the better.

It's actually better if you only eat one piece (at a time) and put the dressing on it and FOLD IT OVER (that's a story from my brother's childhood that I'll share with you sometime, but it loses a lot in print).

I don't know how I happened upon this particular snack. We must have been REALLY low on groceries.

I'm sure I wouldn't try this with other salad dressings, even though when we were children it wasn't uncommon for us to have mayonnaise sandwiches for snack. Except we didn't use mayo, we used Miracle Whip. I guess I made the "salad dressing" jump and decided it didn't just have to be THAT kind of salad dressing.

Can't picture it with thousand island dressing. Or ranch. Especially not Italian... ewwwwwwww!

But a Catalina sandwich is the ultimate comfort food. I haven't had one in a while (until I prepared one specifically for this blog), since we only have whole-grain bread in our house, and the Catalina these days is fat-free.

It just isn't the same.

Plain old white bread would be SO much better, but whatever.

Just pour the Catalina right on. Be careful, or it will ooze out the side. And you may just be wearing a crisp white blouse. I'm just sayin'.

Slap the two pieces of bread together. Best accompanied by a cold glass of milk. Whole would be best, but 1% will suffice.
Please don't judge me for the weirdness of my snack choices. I also have some other favorites that aren't quite so weird, like graham crackers with peanut butter and microwave popcorn.

I feel better having confessed to all of you. Happy weekend!

I think it looks... interesting. I like vegenaise on rye bread, nothing else. It's really tasty, so yours has to be good, too! I've never tasted Catalina salad dressing, so I'm in the dark about the tastiness of your treat. No judgment here! :-)
