Gah. I'm so sorry about your apartment. The first thing I did after seeing your fire pictures was go out and get renters insurance. And then I emailed everyone I know and told them to get renters insurance.

On the sandwich front, I'm a grad student too (public health and epidemiology) and sandwiches are definitely the food of last resort in my house. That being said, there is one sandwich I really enjoy. Get some fresh (cooked) or tinned tuna or salmon (we can get really good tinned fish up here in Canada), add some olive oil and lemon juice and squish with a fork for a tuna/salmon salad consistancy. Toast some whole wheat bread, grate a whole bunch of carrot and add some sunflower seeds and your fish.

Hope things get better soon.

I feel for you! I get equally frustrated when I visit family and end up eating this sort of stuff. I can't imagine doing it for longer than a few days! :( I recently visited my sister (who does not cook and does not ever eat real food), and after the first day I woke up sooo cranky. Not even coffee! They don't even drink coffee! I need my coffee from a French press, daily. It always feels amazing to return to fresh, homemade food. I hope you're able to do that very soon!

I am very sorry to read about the fire in your apartment. Really sorry.

There are so many things that we can loose on fire but you can also find a brand new future for you in the remains of this terrible accident.

I am sure you will remake your life beautifully and soon start to believe in the creation powers of fire!

Good luck!

I'm not going to presume to tell you how to eat - I'll just contribute once again that your situation totally sucks. I actually have a lot of much more vulgar expressions that I'd like to use but I don't think they're appropriate. Fire sucks!

2010-01-09T16:39:13.599-08:00

so sorry to read about everything that you are going through. i think the worst part is how long it takes you to get back to the regular things you take for granted, like eating at home.
i have to say however that sandwich is making me envious. i'm pregnant, and haven't been allowed sandwich meat for over six months. so while i definitely feel sorry for your sandwich repetition, i want to lick the computer screen. who knew deli meats could cause such insanity!

"I feel like I could cut open a good artery and use a spoon to scoop out the cholesterol and spread it on toast."

Arg! That is one visual description I could have done without, but highly effective.

Hope you get a salad soon.

For a panini press, just use a regular skillet on the stove and also heat up an old-fashioned cast iron bacon/burger press and put that on top. Presses it down and adds a little heat at the same time. Flip sandwich over to complete the cooking. I've also used just a plate on top w/ a tea kettle full of water to just get the squashing value of a panini press.

2010-01-08T15:09:20.560-08:00

You know I think I like you all fired up (excuse the pun) and pissed off! You are quite hilarious this way plus your metaphors are simply perfect. I think my favorite was when you were talking about the sting rays and how they hated the change of menu, "The proof was the red whip like marks that streaked my ankles, like I’d been flogged in a Turkish prison by a limp-wristed guard."
Even with all you've got going on, you seem to be holding up but it is rough out there, without the right utensils. I am a college student who studies by day but cooks and bakes by night (and drinks but hey,it comes with the job description). I find that you can improvise with just about anything. A good 12 inch nonstick skillet is your new best friend! Ok, that does not truly comfort you like a burly Russian woman who makes you rest your head between massive bosoms but I can't send you Olga, sadly enough.
With all that said, I love this passion sandwiches seem to have on you. I am positive sandwiches have never inflamed someone quite as much :)

hi garrett--just wanted to say how sorry i was to hear about your fire. how awful that must be! i really enjoy reading your blog & hope that your life can get back to some semblence of normality very soon. take care & i'll be praying for you to find some peace.

2010-01-08T10:43:04.762-08:00

I often say that if I had to eat one food every day it would be a sandwich. That's all hypothetical though, and I know how tiresome eating out can be. Is there a nearby Whole Foods? Pricy, but the salad bars have lots of veggies and whole grains.

2010-01-08T10:36:36.257-08:00

I bet you can get a George Foreman for 2 or 3 bucks at Goodwill.

I know its not gourmet, but I have had some pretty amazing grilled smmies and chicken/fish/kabob meals made on a Foreman grill in my day!

Also, just want to say that I am so sorry to hear about the fire. I know we don't know each other, but I read your blog religiously, and so i feel like I know you, and my heart hurt for you when I read the post.

2010-01-08T04:13:03.466-08:00

If I were you I'd invite myself over to friend's and acquaintance's houses for a wee bite. Use the homeless angel. Home-cooked food, no dishes...

Larder.

My family calls it a larder and receive much chastising from the pantry people.

Glad to know we're not alone.

Also? That sammich looks mighty good.
