The dog days of summer


Summer is coming to an end and that means only one thing - bring in the patio furniture and dust off the dining room furniture - no, it means - Battle Sandwich deadline is looming on the horizon. Look, I dont care if you dont want a hundred bucks, I'll keep it, its just that simple, but if you do want this gift certificate you need to enter your best sandwich creation by midnight August 23rd. See that image above? Its NOT a sandwich - it is a pork chop with garlic and a baked potato - it would not qualify in the Smackdown.

Do you see this piece of sushi with spicy salmon and quail egg? It too WOULD not qualify.

Where as this little morsel would qualify - a little lobster salad sandwiched between lobster macarons - part of my entry for Battle Lobster in a previous smackdown. Good luck people - entries have been coming in and the competition looks tough!

Oh and to my overseas friends we might be able to figure something out if you win - where I use the certificate for you and then we figure out shipping to get the item from me to you, if it seems economical. Any thoughts on this?

Since my links are getting lost in the excitement I will post what you could read if you followed the link:

Battle Sandwich-

You heard me right the lowly sandwich but believe you me there is nothing and I mean nothing lowly about a sandwich. Look -here's a sandwich now. I dont need to go into the whole Earl of Sandwich sales pitch to enlighten you in any way. You eat sandwiches or you know someone that does. What is a sandwich, a sandwich is any filling between two pieces of bread - that is the only real consideration here, the sandwich must contain some kind of a bread and some kind of a filling so for all you witty ones out there this means that lettuce wraps are out and to further clarify any vegetable or fruit wrap would be out as well - it needs bread - any kind of bread - some kind of bread - BREAD makes it a sandwich - clear?

Hey do I qualify too? Or am I too far away :P Delicious photos.

mmmm...look at that roasted garlic...mmmm! So, I'm a bit confused (what's new)...are we supposed to be sending you our entries as we get them (via email???) or just all at once by midnight on the 23rd? Sorry...

doggybloggy said...

I am confused too - I have started a draft post with the entries that have come in already - if you have entries and you want to send them now you can - I think some people like to wait till the deadline so I imagine a small flood at that point...but yes via e mail and dont forget to link on the post containing the sandwich the details of the smackdown -

Now if I live in LA and my patio furniture stays out all day and I spend more time in the pool in winter than summer, can I still enter? GREG

doggybloggy said...

Sipp: all kinds of exceptions are being made so why not.

Belinda @zomppa said...

Dang, that lobster macaroon?? Brilliance! Love quail eggs.

FOODalogue said...

Sippity Sup and Chez What? comments on one page is definitely LOL material.

Marjie said...

I can't compete with your sandwiches, but I'll send an entry just so you can laugh at the patheticness of it. I can laugh at me, and I'm happy to be a source of hilarity!

Intriguing!

Cooking Gallery said...

I am in Germany I hope I am eligible to join in. Question no.1: Does the sandwich need to be with bread or something else like potato, rice, etc is ok as long as it looks like sandwich (say, sausage sandwiched between potato cakes or so??)?

Question no.2: Can I just post the entry in my blog then I let you know it has been posted?

Hope my questions are not too confusing!

doggybloggy said...

cooking gallery: yes you can enter - no it has to have some kind of bread wrapping the outside - tortilla, pita, bun, biscuit, fried dough, cookie - and yes you post it to your blog with a link to my blog and send me an e mail so I can retrieve pictures and links...I hope this isnt confusing....

Cooking Gallery said...

I just noticed that I missed reading the last part of your post! It has to be with BREAD! Okie dokie, I will think about it, hopefully I can find some rather unconventional ideas :).

teresa said...

woah, lobster macarons, incredible! i also want to grab that little piece of sushi. i'm excited to check out all the creative sandwiches.

Adelina said...

Thanks for the comedy! I will see if my brain will spark until then.

Sounds like we'll have some fine entries and a good turn-out for this Smackdown! Doing my best not to wait too close to that midnight deadline :)

Meanwhile, I'm working on a round-up of year-round panzanella recipes (which I hope to get up on my blog tomorrow night). Doggy, if you have some fabulous twist up your sleeve, please let me know.

Ain't judging a fabulous job :)

A SPICY PERSPECTIVE said...

Sounds fun! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

doggybloggy said...

EVERYONE should enter because ANYONE can win. Why not? Maybe I should enter? Its a thought.

LaDivaCucina said...

I am SOOOO in and will post on Monday!

Jamie said...

Now I'm hungry! I never make sandwiches and now I want to...

Claudia said...

I don't know - couldn't they all be sandwiches? Put a piece of bread on the plate and call it a day - because I do want them all.
