    That is good to hear!

    Always thought there was something slightly tragic about your lack of access to proper cheese. It's probably always been there, in little European delis etc, but your Average American seems oblivious. We can probably blame supermarkets for not stocking a decent range.

    Amish butter would be excellent, I imagine.

    Our larger supermarkets offer many cheese and bread varieties now, and even live herbs!

    I've just 'invented' a new sandwich: thinly-sliced wholemeal bread, a hard boiled egg mashed in a bowl with mayo, introduce into the mix some chopped-up sundried tomatoes, and add salt and pepper to personal taste. Party in the mouth!

    It depends on what I'm eating. If I can get good cheese from a humane dairy operation (which is hard in the US), I'll make a gourmet grilled cheese.......Gouda, brie, and cheddar, and some sliced roma tomato, and onion grilled on sourdough.

    Other than that I enjoy liverworst with carmelized onions on sourdough.

    What is sourdough? I've seen it in my supermarket but don't know whether to try it or not; a kind of bread?

    Its a bread. It's slightly sour tasting because they use a special bacteria in making it which releases lactic acid.

    Tks - it's odd that anyone would like something which tastes sour, but hey-ho - takes all sorts, as they say.

    It's not sour sour, but just a twinge and if it is made fresh, it is delicious.

    Tastes great toasted with butter. My wife tells me that it is more healthy than other bread. She is a health nut.

    A deli ham and swiss on Rye with mayo and spicy mustard, lettuce and red onion optional.

    Or, on a cold winter's day, grilled cheddar cheese with bacon, on white.

    Yum.

    How 'bout ham, swiss, coleslaw and Russian dressing separated by 3 slices of thinly sliced rye. Known as a sloppy joe where I come from.

    Maybe a little 'too' sloppy for me. I like my sandwiches 'crisp' and tidy. My burgers, however...….

    You must try it. Not mushy the way the deli made it. Yeah, a little soft my way.
