October 29, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try a Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich, a recipe dating back to the Great Depression. It's an unlikely recipe The New York Times compares to the marriage of Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett. Not cool, New York Times. Not cool.
October 22, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try a new take on a sandwich classic. In the spirit of the KFC Double Down, which replaces bread with fried chicken, we make a grilled cheese using a doughnut in the place of the bread.

October 15, 2012 For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try the Candwich, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a can. The makers say it has an extended shelf life over conventional sandwiches, staying fresh for years. This is good, because it may take decades to get up the nerve to eat it.
