Bagel Sandwich with Cream Cheese, Lettuce & Tomato
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
A GMTD milestone: the first post featuring a meal prepared by W! (The last time that she made something for me was over 4 years ago, during my recovery period from tonsillectomy, which prompted her to learn how to cook egg custards, bless her heart.)
Having arrived home late, I was holding a bagel and contemplating what to do with it for a simple dinner, when she suddenly popped out of nowhere like a fairy godmother and volunteered. I don’t know what possessed her. Intrigued, I placed the bagel on the countertop and silently walked away and plopped down in front of the TV in the living room. About 30 seconds later, she called out, “What goes in a sandwich?” I replied, “Surprise me.” This was the result: cream cheese and (unseasoned) tomato and lettuce on a cold, dry, stale bagel (I would’ve toasted it and slathered it in mayo and mustard). Taste and texture aside, I actually enjoyed it, even though it wasn’t really very good, and I wouldn’t want to repeat the experience.
