Hamlet: A Positive Experience

Hooray for Hamlet!!!

Maybe you think the excitement/exclamation points are a little ridiculous. Hamlet is not exactly the most positive story in the Shakesperian repertoire.

Things I Free-Associate With Hamlet Include:

  • Alas poor Yorrick
  • über-morbid grave-digging humor
  • bat-shit crazy heartbroken girlfriends
  • soliloquies on suicide
  • bloody death-fests with poison-tipped swords

Overarchingly not-positive, right?

You know not what it is?

Well, ALLOW me to introduce you to a whole new world of Hamlets. That’s right! Hamlets are (drumroll please) MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE SANDWICH!

doubt not. . .


. . . this sandwich.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Rye bread (I like it swirled with pumpernickel!)
  • ham cold-cuts
  • cole slaw *
  • dill pickles
  • tomatoes, sliced
  • bacon
  • swiss cheese slices

Ingredients to LOVE

* whisk together 1/2 c. mayo, 1/2 c. vegetable oil, 1/8 c. sugar, 1/6 c. white vinegar, then pour over 1 bag of shredded cabbage/coleslaw mix and let sit for about 1 hour before using

Now you just layer it all!!!

Sandwich by LayerPlease note, step #8 involves broiling for a minute. . . or putting it in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it is out of the oven,  you just ENJOY IT in all of its glorious mess! Which, ironically, is how you enjoy the play as well, if you really want to know.

AMAZING!Trust me, it’s delicious!

Disagree with me on this one? Well, all I have to say to you is:

get thee too a nunneryvia

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
