Joshy Eats Hemingway's...

favorite sandwich.
Not much needed in the way of explanation.
Salt
Pepper
Butter
Radishes
Good crusty bread



Most of you know Joshy is like brother to me.
He's a Hemingway fan in all ways.

In the simplicity of a meal can be its beauty and greatness.
Fresh radishes and a little bread are wonderfully simple and classic.
Things like this take me to a time when the world moved a little slower.
Things were appreciated for their effortless value.
There was not a want for more... the satisfaction was in the simplicity.
Imagine something so splendid and classic...

Hemingway ate them often at the Closerie des Lilas in Paris.
A time when his days were spent writing in the cafes
and walking in the gardens of the city.
While writing many meals were consumed
and conversations had...
an uncomplicated easiness.
Never searching for more.

Hmmm, a Radish sandwich ...really? I've had a cucumber sandwich, but never a radish sandwich. I like radishes, so I guess why not.

Why not indeed...


Chuck, I wish I liked radishes. ha.

I like radish sandwiches too!

I'm half ukranian, and for some reason these really resonate with me:

toated pumpernickel (key) slathered with a mixture of: spring onions or shallots + sour cream, with thinly sliced radishes dusted with salt and pepper.

The sour cream is key.

Good to know someone else out there likes them.
