I could go for a yellow mustard and Miracle Whip sandwich with Ruffles potato chips right now.
Yeah, yeah, I know, Miracle Whip……[:0]
I like Ham and Cheese sandwiches with plain chips on them.[:p] Chips are good on Cheddar Cheese sandwiches as well.[:p]
Yes, I have taken much good natured ribbing here…..[:D]
well, if anyone asks again, you can just cut and paste my response.
Although, I did miss Adjudicator’s comment that your pics looked "interesting." Perhaps it was a combo of his and Pwingsx’s comments that got the ball rolling.
anyway, all in good fun.
I like when we all tell each other our gaffs as well as our successes. It keeps it real. No one can be perfect all the time.
Thank you Scorereader for clarifying my purple debacle[:I]…..
You put it in better terms that I could have ever thought of…
ARRGH.. I just clicked the link and saw IT!
Quick, Adjudicater, shut your eyes… and it will go away!
I still see my very first friend; we met when we were 3 or 4 years old, and I turned 53 this week.
In elementary school, when they served hamburgers (you know, those gray, steam table hockey pucks), he would put the entire meal on the bun with the burger.
That was: bun, burger, mashed potatoes, potato chips AND the green jello.
A few years ago we had lunch together at KATZ’S, and damn if he didn’t do the same thing! He piled kraut, pickles and half a knish onto a corned beef sandwich. No jello, though.
Old habits die hard, I guess.
Thanks for clarifying Scorereader, that is very funny! As you can see, I’m new here and missed that one. How much better I feel as a Nebraskan and Runza freak knowing I didn’t miss out on something I should have known…
I’m going to have to tell my mom (she can make them, I don’t have the patience) about the purple cabbage. It might just be a way to get the kids to eat them!! Something funny about Runza’s (sorry if off-topic) is that their recipe is "secret" and when you get hired there you have to sign a contract never to tell. As most runza recipes are quite good, it really doesn’t matter. I know what that "secret" ingredient is and it is nothing special that the average person couldn’t figure out – or imitate. I think their "contract" is very amusing!
Esska BBQ Loaf on white bread, potatoe chips with miricle whip.
a Purple Runza, is a runza that Roossy made once. She had gotten the recipe from another poster and was very excited to make it. At some point, she decided to make an ingredient switch. She opted for red cabbage instead of regular cabbage. (leftovers from St. Patty’s Day). Due to the red cabbage, the insides turned completely purple. She was kind enough to post her debacle on this site. (though, apparently, it didn’t affect the taste at all) She has since made runzas that weren’t purple. The error, though, has been a running joke on this board ever since. All in fun, of course. From time to time, even Roossy herself will bring it up. There’s probably someone out there making purple runzas just because we now know the ingredient to make a perfectly good runza turn purple.
here’s the thread where she learned about Runzas: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6394&SearchTerms=runza
here’s the infamous purple runza thread, which doesn’t make reference to the odd color initially. Roossy acknowledges her mistake, but the long running joke may be because of Pwingsx’s comments on how blue it looked. Roossy admits it was actually a deep purple. It doesn’t actually become a running joke right away. That happened over time when the purple runza got referred to, but here is the origin: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=11997
Oddly enough, the whole thing started in a CHILI forum. go figgur!
You haven’t lived until you’ve had a purple runza with chips on top. [:o)]
A purple Runza? I’m from Nebraska, so you’d think I would know…what the hell is a purple Runza? Do you mean the Swiss Mushroom one? They used to wrap those in purple. They don’t anymore.
Haven’t had a chipwich in sooo long. Now I know whats for dinner tonight!
Potato chips on Sandwiches made with white bread, Velveta style cheese, thin onion slices and lots and lots of yellow mustard.
I know, a nutrition nightmare, but a taste that is just great!
A thick layer of BBQ potato chips on my PB&J is the order of the day.
ann, This is what hubby has been doing since being diagnosed diabetic a few months ago since having the sandwich AND the Fritos would be too carb-heavy. He trades the bread carbs for Fritos carbs! As long as he still gets some Fritos with his tuna salad, he doesn’t even mind it not being a sandwich.
Welcome TooPhat too!! I’m pretty new too and I love this site. Trouble is I’m drooling and starving in no time after reading it just a few minutes! Love food!
