Actually, I have this idea about sandwiches.
Sops are period (of course). But what if a cook had a sop that they cooked
too long, and it became dry? You could still eat it, but then you'd have an
open-faced sandwich with a sort of mushy "filling" with mixed meat and
vegetables. So, would this kind of open-faced sandwich with a cooked
topping be allowed by our period police? What say you? I'm thinking,
cooking it down to the consistency of, oh, exceedingly lumpy mashed potatoes
with pieces of meat and vegetable mixed in.
