Speaking of those yummy cucumber sandwiches, are they still offered on the room service menu?

I can't stop thinking about them now! LOL

Cucumber sandwiches - reminds me of the Agatha Christie days.

Think they are too sour (IMHO).

Makes me think of a "tea party".....

.....of the cucumbers? ...or the bread???

Personally, I absolutely LOVE cucumber sandwiches ... with or without the crusts, but definitely without the peel.

The Bread, of course!
I'll eat 'em ... but they'll need to add peanut butter.

They are still on the menu. Reminds me of my 94 year old mother. She likes cucumber and cold green bean sandwiches. Bread crusts on or off. Usually off when she has them for tea.

Not one of my favorites, though.

I know you're kidding, Rev, but believe it or not I know people who absolutely love cucumber w/peanut butter sandwiches. It's good because the peanut butter keeps the cucumbers from sliding out of the bread the way they do with mayo. As for me, I like mine virgin with mayo and lots of salt & pepper. My mouth waters with the thought!!

Yeah, especially if you leave out the cucumbers.

Well, as an ex-pat Brit, I grew up eating cucumber sandwiches and we didn`t have to wait for a tea party! it was a matter of economics! A cuke sarnie, or a tomato sarie is right up my street!


Vic, are you British by any chance?

What, no scrapple sandwiches or cheesesteaks or hoagies? You probably didn't have any Schmidt's either.

Seriously, it sounds like you hosted a very elegant tea.

Love peanut butter and sweet pickle sandwiches. Would that be similar, Revneal?
Also peanut butter and bananas
Also peanut butter and mayo (this is a real heart-stopper)
