Do you have any idea what I am talking about?

I'LL BET YOU THINK I'M TALKING ABOUT A SANDWICH....AND YOU JUST MIGHT BE RIGHT!

I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT JUST ANY OL' SANDWICH....THIS IS A SANDWICH I HAD NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE UNTIL RECENTLY. 

"A FOLD-OVER SANDWICH".............

Have you ever heard of such ??????  YES, I HAVE HAD ONE, BUT WE CALLED IT A HALF OF A SANDWICH.

A COUPLE OF OUR GRANDSONS PLAY SELECT BASEBALL.  THEY WERE HAVING A TOURNAMENT IN THE DALLAS AREA, WHICH MEANT THE TEAMS WOULD BE THERE MOST OF THE WEEKEND.  SEVERAL OF THE MOMS WERE MAKING PLANS TO TAKE PICNIC FOODS IN ORDER TO CUT DOWN ON THE COST OF THE FOOD. 

SHANDA WAS VISITING WITH ONE OF HER VERY GOOD FRIENDS (WENDY SMITH) ABOUT WHAT KIND OF FOODS WOULD BE THE EASIEST TO TAKE.  WENDY STATED THAT THEY WERE GOING TO BE EATING A LOT OF FOLD-OVERS SO, SHE WAS PLANNING ON TAKING SNACKS TO GO ALONG WITH THAT. 

SHANDA WAS A BIT CONFUSED....SHE ASK WENDY WHAT A FOLD-OVER WAS.  WENDY EXPLAINED THAT A FOLD-OVER WAS JUST A HALF OF A SANDWICH FOLDED OVER...NOW HOW SIMPLE IS THAT?  WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED THAT?


WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF LAUGHS ABOUT THIS ONE....  WENDY WAS TICKLED BECAUSE WE HAD NEVER HEARD OF SUCH, AND WE WERE LAUGHING SO HARD ABOUT THE WAY WENDY WAS LOVING HER FOLD-OVERS.

FUNNY ISN'T IT, HOW WE TAG A CUTE LITTLE NAME ON DIFFERENT FOODS WE EAT.
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A "Brown  Derby"

I AM ALMOST SURE THAT EVERYONE HAS HAD A BROWN DERBY.  IF YOU HAVE EATEN AT A DAIRY QUEEN, CHANCES ARE THAT YOU HAVE TREATED YOURSELF TO ONE.
A BROWN DERBY IS A DIPPED CONE.....

HOW ABOUT "SARATOGA CHIPS" ...
HOW MANY OF US HAVE HAD THESE?  POTATO CHIPS WERE ORIGINALLY CALLED SARATOGA CHIPS.....


I WISH MY GRANDPARENTS WERE STILL LIVING.  I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SIT DOWN AND TALK TO THEM ABOUT THINGS LIKE THIS.  I'D BE WILLING TO BET THAT THERE WERE A LOT OF SLANG NAMES FOR THE FOODS THEY ATE. 

DO ANY OF YOU KNOW OF UNUSUAL NAMES FOR FOODS?       LIKE, WHAT IF FRIED STEAK WAS ORIGINALLY CALLED "SKILLET FRIED MOO".  GRANDMA MIGHT SAY, " WE'RE HAVING SKILLET FRIED MOO AND TATORS TONIGHT"
DOESN'T SOUND AS GOOD DOES IT....HOWEVER, I STILL DO NOT KNOW HOW THEY CAME UP WITH CHICKEN FRIED STEAK....?  HOW DID THE CHICKEN GET IN THERE?  THAT'S ANOTHER STORY IN ITSELF!

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT ON THIS GREAT THURSDAY MORNING....I'm  just sayin'


Shug..........

Thank you Jesus for adding laughter to our day....
