You realize of course how pathetic it would be that a guy who lives in a very populated section of Washington State would need to resort to measures normally reserved for people who live in deep rural areas....like Alaska.

But I must say that I have seriously considered this solution to satisfy my pizza craving. So far I just do the best I can making my own, but I have not yet perfected the RockFord Il version of the Chicago Thin pizza.

@hawkeye10,
I like the good old bagels like those we used to get somewhere around midnight at I M Joy's on Temple Street in downtown LA. after concerts and whatnot. Dense, chewy, plain, delicious.

Total opposite of a company like Noah's Bagels - relatively fluffery big bagels with immense schmears, ugh.

Recently I've looked up a recipe for making Montreal type bagels, since they sound more like the olden days' IMJoys.

A bagel in Albuquerque? Fuggedaboudit.

Here's the recipe:

Sounds doable.

Now to figure out if that is diastatic or non diastatic malt powder (from my slopping reading of a few sites, I think bagels get the non-diastatic (no active enzymes).
Will announce it, however it goes, if I ever make any. I've been busy enough making Momofuku's chinese scallion pancakes - pancakes being an odd word for them, as they're also easy, tasty, and chewy.

Oh, on the matter of the thread -

I put butter on good bread toasted, 1 side. Sometimes I put good olive oil dribbles on instead.
Back as a kid I think we buttered only outside when making grilled cheese sandwiches. If I'm going to heat cheese, I'll usually make a quesadilla, not a sandwich.

For regular sandwiches, I'm a bread snob. Dense bread with good tooth/crumb texture, preferably homemade or the hearthbread types from market. Of good bread types, I like all sorts of flours, or mixes of flours.
I use mayo, but not a lot, a thin glaze. Sometimes my mayo has stuff in it - herbs, spices. I've made my own mayo a few times, it's easy with olive oil and tastes better, but I'm over that.

Once in a blue moon I'll add mustard to a sandwich.
If the meat or fish is already dressed with a marinade I throw on, then the sandwich is wet enough, nothing else added except whatever stuff like caramelized onions, roast eggplant slice, or roasted sweet peppers... or sliced pickled peperoncini. Lettuce/spinach/etc if any is alive and perky in the fridge.

Or maybe it's a plain sammich. My lifetime faves are the ones I remember my parents making when I was about four or five - left over roast turkey, salted, on bread with mayo.

Which brings up olden times bread - in the Chicago area in the fifties, it was called Weber's Bread, not Wonder Bread. Same stuff. Tuna/mayo or bologna went on it, sometimes served with a bowl of Campbell's chicken noodle soup. And Cool Aid or hmade lemonade.

Thanks for the reminder. I saved some of those recipes I looked up the last time you mentioned them. This time I'll leave the links on the desktop.

@ossobuco,
where did this thread go bad?

One should NEVER butter the bread that one is using in the act of constructing a sammich.

Even Ghandi had his PBJ's sans butter, naked,and he always had his bread toasted.

Imagine a BLT with BUTTER on the toast. Blecchh!

I use butter for so many things, it isn't worth it to list them all here.

I just put butter on an Italian sausage sandwich, a few minutes back. It doesn't make a lot of difference what it is, I may put some on it. Jelly and butter. Honey and butter. Peppers and butter. If it has bread, particularly, it just may get buttered. Hamburger, eggs - Thing is, I never voluntarily use cheese, but butter I adore.
