Choking on sandwiches

I went to disneyland with Sunha for my birthday. For lunch, I went to Cafe Orleans in the little new orleans there. I went with the safe bet, the chicken sandwich.

As I waited, the waiter kept walking by with these unbelievable looking montecristos. I soon realied my blunder, which was, not stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new. I didn't order the montecristo because it had powdered sugar and cranberry sauce. I could have experienced something very special and beautiful that day and therefore, choked... by not ordering the montecristo...


  1. Ah ah ah
    your blog is so funny to read and makes me hungry!
    What is a montecristo? Can you make a post about it sometime in the future.

  2. Hey Mel,

    A Monte Cristo is a fried ham and/or turkey sandwich.
    The sandwich can differ regionally. Traditionally it is dipped in its entirety in batter and deep fried. In some regions of the United States it is served grilled, and in some regions it is served as an open sandwich with just the bread battered. It can also be served as an open sandwich using french toast as a base, with the ham, turkey and cheese piled and then heated slightly under a broiler.

    The sandwich is often served with fresh fruit or with clotted cream on the side. It is sometimes served with fruit preserves, powdered sugar, maple syrup, or sweet mustard sauce.
