Dagwood of My Own

Haiku My Heart Friday
October 29, 2010

Haiku My Heart Friday is the creation of my friend Rebecca. To see more haiku, visit recuerda mi corazon

Bacon turkey swiss
Tomato avocado
On toasted rye bread

This Haiku was easy to write. The ingredients of my Dagwood style sandwich had the right amount of syllables. I don't always eat like this. Sometimes I eat just vegetables and no meat at all. This was a great tasting sandwich. I like being a little whimsical today as I am in a great mood.

Do you remember the Blondie and Dagwood comic strip? Dagwood was known for these fantastically large snadwiches, so much so, that a stacked one like mine carries his Moniker. I didn't have any garlic stuffed green olives to skewer with a tinsel tipped toothpick for the topper. I'll have to get some of those.

The Days of the Dead are just around the corner, Monday and Tuesday to be exact, November 1st and 2nd. Some blogger friends of mine are going to Mexico to visit folk art galleries and enjoy the celebration. I wish them all a great wonderful adventurous journey. A part of my heart will be with them.

In case you missed it, you're invited here if you want to come. You can read about it in the post below this one.

Have a wonderful time in Mexico friends. The rest of you have a wonderful time where ever you are.

Peace to all

Now this is my kind of haiku! Not only does the sandwich look amazing, but your clever use of simplicity speaks volumes. I sure do remember Blondie and Dagwood. Great memories. Have a great weekend!

Love the haiku, Spadoman, and the sandwich! Have a wonderful trip to South Carolina. It should be fantastic! I would love to go there myself some day. I know that you love N.M. I wish you a wonderful Dios de los Muertos with friends and loved ones.

What a FABULOUSLY delicious Haiku Spadoman!!! But if you had the toothpick with the olive, it might not have been the Haiku it is! It was perfect the way it was!

I do appreciate your American sentiment on the side of your site! Must write it down and share with my husband and mother.

AND it warms my heart to know that you and Barb are giving a dia de los muertos celebration, as I'm a big fan of this tradition.

One of my friends husbands was murdered on Nov 1, ten years ago. He was a reporter, it was 2:00 am after Halloween night. I spend time with my friend and then remember my father and all those I love dearly who have passed.

Will think of you during your celebration and your openness to include all. And I'll think of Rebecca and Steph. They are making one of my dreams of 25 yrs. come true!!

You must be a sandwich specialist, mine look nothing like this! We Brits are quick to catch on though!

Also thank you for illuminating Day of the Dead celebration, seems like a lovely way to honour those who have gone before, it must bring you very close to your daughter and her boyfriend.

Lovely pic and haiku

I am Foxysu's daughter and after reading about your sandwich think I might be able to do one myself!

Thanks for the inspiration.

Joe I love the reference to Blondie and Dagwood : )and you have one amazing sandwich there ! haha
The haiku is wonderful .. simple and pleasant the way they should be.
I wish I could journey to that folk art festival and see so many beautiful pieces that call to all of us in their own special way .. I would have to have a very large truck to take them home with me?LOL
Hey ... have a fantastic time with the party .. wish I could come .. hope you take LOTS of pictures so we can see ?
Have a blast !
Joy : )
