As a fat man of some note, I am a fan of food, and thus vary my diet as much as possible, and thus have never been a proponent of things like “meatloaf night” or having the same breakfast each day.  But on certain days like today, when I was up too late the night before and actually DOING stuff rather than my usual routine of “stay on couch, engage internet besties”, I always have the same craving: cheese and summer sausage.  It’s not even necessary for there to be crackers involved, although a sufficiently buttery and/or flavorful one can serve as a meat-cheese delivery system, enhancing my lunch experience.  Indeed, if you prepare ahead of time, it’s a meal that requires little prep time or work, making it perfect for the days when ya don’t want to do much of anything, which leads us to today’s low-carb but probably high in fat query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has a friend who routinely has cheese and popcorn every Sunday night as a family tradition of decades-long standing, asking: What meal do you think you would find yourself craving in the event of a theoretical weekend brunch?

    I don’t know what they are actually called, but you take a soft tortilla and spread a mixture of cream cheese and diced onions on it, then place lunch meat (I use the Carl Buddig thin sliced lunchmeat, but you can use other stuff), then roll it up and slice them into little circles. Simple as heck to make and really tasty.

      I had some things in mind, but you sold me on those.

      Take the exact recipe, but add a scallion cut to the length of the tortilla—awesomeness!

    Eggs Benedict topped with smoked salmon or crab cakes.

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
