But now, a brief time-out, while we bring you the results of that slap-happy meme that has taken the Internets by storm, "What This Loser Food-Blogger Had for Lunch Today."
I will deconstruct for you. It had bits of meat. Some spreadable sauce-like ingredient. Fresh greens. And a supporting platform of a wheat-based product.
Let's guess! Bits of meat. Could it have been tuna from a pouch?
Well, then, a spreadable sauce. We're thinking mayonnaise, but. Scratch that. We'll go with mustard.
Oh dear. Hm. Fresh greens. Um, that would have to be lettuce. Right?
Anyway, at least we know the last item. Bread! Hah.
Dear readers, Cranky and I had Chinese roasted duck, shredded and separated from the bones (and fat). Cranky bought a whole, cooked duck in San Francisco's New Chinatown (the Richmond) for under $10. The counterman hacked it up on the spot.
We split lengths of scallion into fine ribbons. We steamed fresh flour tortillas (cut in halves). And we stirred a little rice vinegar into some hoisin sauce (on a whim, because the duck was so fragrantly seasoned with five-spice powder and we thought we'd need to cut the sweetness a little).
Procedure: Smoodge, put, add, roll up. Eat. Bliss.
Seriously, this would be terrific party food. Drop-dead easy to assemble the ingredients, and guests can roll their own. Unbelievably tasty.
It was the best SANDWICH ever.
