Hmmm … you must be new around here. )  So here are some simple recipes. I cannot promise you that these sandwiches are healthy, calorie-wise or otherwise good for you.

Pride, Prejudice and Curiosity

A scene with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy after a swim in a lake is recognized as “one of the most unforgettable moments in British TV history”. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The words “Pride” and “Prejudice”, especially when joined with a non-contrasting conjunction are to a certain gender what, reportedly, catnip is to a feline.
