Picnic pickles to dine for
Something very odd is happening to me. I used to be able to pass up salty stuff on my way to the sweet and carby stuff. Chocolate chip cookies, pie, bread, breakfast cereal were all acceptable dinner entrees when I wasn’t cooking for the family.
Lately, I want cold cuts, red meat, eggs, sausage, cheese, chicken wings, barbecue, spicy anything — and pickles of any kind. This is funny because that’s a pretty accurate description of my husband’s tastes, heretofore.
Meanwhile, he’s trying to go to vegetarian lunches. The significance of this seismic shift is hard to convey and I can’t begin to wrap my mind around it. All I know is that I couldn’t skip this recipe, which made my mouth water for an Italian sub loaded up with Sweet-and-Spicy Bread-and-Butter Pickles.
