Lunch à la Scooby-Doo

Oh, Daphne. Be still my beating heart.

Ahem! Sorry… bit distracted there.

The pic above is a little misleading, I’ll admit, but you know those sandwiches that Shaggy and Scooby-Doo make? The ones where they open the refrigerator, sling the ingredients across the kitchen like a croupier at Caesars Palace, and everything lands on a plate as a perfectly-formed, multi-layered snack? Yeah, that. Minimum prep, maximum nom. Don’t they always look like the greatest sandwiches you’ve ever seen? My mouth is watering at the very thought!


So, I thought I’d give it a whirl at lunchtime, earlier today. Not the flinging ingredients across the room thing, but making one of those awesome sandwiches. It wasn’t as colossal as one of Shaggy’s spectacular creations, but I opted for the countless ingredients approach, and it turned out pretty darn well!

The sauerkraut makes it!

Jinkies! Behold – pastrami, chicken, Swiss cheese, gem lettuce, tomato, sauerkraut (don’t be shy with the sauerkraut), gherkins, mayonnaise and French’s mustard on rye bread. I call it “The Shrieking Madness” (Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, season 1, episode 12).
