Dh asked if I could please make him a nice sandwich.

So I made two pieces of baguette:

1. Brie, tomato and mango
2. Ham, tomato and mango (possibly not very nais ham)

He did a hmm at my efforts?

Would you have any thing against mango in your sandvich?

yes sorry
mangi belongs in the bin

StealthPolarBear Mon 26-Sep-11 22:28:16

mangi being, ahem, the plural of mango

Nope I LOVE weird stuff in my sandwiches. Not that I consider Mango to be weird.

Dh had bacon butties with Marmalade and brown sauce in them, they're lovely.

I suppose if he had wanted a fruit salad sandwich he would have asked for one! Mango has it's uses but alongside tomato is definitely not one of them!

It's perverse shock

I bet you take a perfectly nice pizza and plop bloody pineapple on it too? hmm

If he hadn't previously shown an inclination to eat mango with savoury stuff I would put the mango on the side.

No,but I'd certainly have something against tomatoes in my sandwich.

I now want a baguette from our bun shop, Tommos very own chinese chicken, brie, olives and anchovies. Om, nom fucking nom!

When DS1 (9) goes to the "baguette cafe" he asks for Sweet chilli chicken, feta cheese, rocket and olives....

No, but when dh is making nice sandwiches for me, he would add blueberries with the ham and lettuce, etc. I thought I would make him sandwiches in the same vein. Apparently, he is also of the idea that mango and tomato dont go well together. hmm

What do I put on my pizza?

I make a tomato sauce with garlic, tomatoes, oregano and fresh basil. Add a mixture of grated mozarella and mature cheddar cheese. For toppings I put cured ham (such as parma), sliced mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, and olives. Sometimes som pepperoni to add flavour.

Quint - you are lovely and everything, but what pharmaceuticals have you been taking to combine mango and tomato?

MissPenteuth Mon 26-Sep-11 22:43:40

Mango goes better with chicken. Boots used to do a nice chicken wrap with mango mayonnaise. Mango chutney also works. In fact mango chutney would work with ham too. Not sure about fresh mango though.

MissPenteuth Mon 26-Sep-11 22:44:10

And the word mango just looks weird now. Mango mango.

Bed time for me confused

Quintessentialist Mon 26-Sep-11 22:44:35

Nothing, other than Green & Black organic milchocolate with almonds. It is not very nice to be honest. Dont understand the hype, really.

I like ham and jam, and cheese and marmalade.

I get ham and mango. I also get ham and tomato. But not mango and tomato. That's just strange. grin

I once met somebody who spread strawberry jam over his mackerell in tomato sandwich.

I used to love mackerell in tomato. Until a garden slug climbed into my sandwich and hid there. And I ate it. chew chew chew yuckety bleurgh.

I would of liked your sandwich.

DH has been known to do Strawberry jam and cheese and DD2 made a sort of fruited of the forest bagel at the school healthy eating night. She didn't like any of the suggested healthy fillings, no plastic ham.

Quintessentialist Mon 26-Sep-11 22:58:32

thanks nodrog. Finally somebody who does not slate my sarnie. I will make you one anyday! (I take it you are not referring to my mackerell sandwich.)

I think mango and chicken = yummy. Ham and mango = wrong.
Cheese and jam is freaking delicious.

Although...ham and pineapple? Mango not that much of a stretch?

MogandMe Mon 26-Sep-11 23:07:06

Another one objecting to tomato in the sandwich

However I am intrigued as to how you put the mango in? I'm envisaging a huge slice of it just put on the top?

LetThereBeRock Mon 26-Sep-11 23:09:28

I have some mango in the fridge,and some ham. I must try this.

Quintessentialist Mon 26-Sep-11 23:09:31

First, I cut a nice cube of mango. Then I sliced the cube into half a centimeter thick "slithers" and stuck it in between the "sheets" of wafer thin ham. Similarily with the Brie and Tomato sandwich, the mango happily between the Brie and the bread.

Quintessentialist Mon 26-Sep-11 23:10:22

Or, rather I assume the mango was happy. I did not actuallly ask.
