Would You Eat This Sandwich?


While watching an episode of Diary of a Foodie on the new Gourmet website, I came across a very interesting sandwich.

The magazine's editor in chief, Ruth Reichl, was making The Max Special, a sandwich with peanut butter, mayonnaise, and pimento-stuffed olives. At first I thought, "gross!" Then I realized if Ms. Reichl is eating this sandwich, it must be pretty darn delicious. I plan on making one to see how it tastes.

What do you think? Would you eat this peanut butter, mayonnaise, and pimento-stuffed olive sandwich?

At this point being pregnant its hard to say. I guess the peanut butter becomes the sweet and the green olives the salty. I don't know I might try it but stay close to the kitchen sink LOL.

Well I like peanut butter. I like mayo. I don't really like olives. So I guess 2/3 isn't too bad, right?

I'm not sure who Ruth Reichel is, but I don't care if Patty LaBelle, Oprah or my Great Grandma was eating this mess, I wouldn't eat it.

Seriously, I SO wish that you would have tried this BEFORE you posted this, so you could have at least given a LITTLE bit of an idea of how it tastes! Especially since I just can NOT see myself actually going home and making it because my family might have me committed thinking I lost my mind.

Not a big fan of olives. However, it could be a flavor combination that that might work. I'd give it a try, especially since it seems to be a favorite of someone who really knows her food.
