  • Oh! Oh! I made wet bread last week. It's now growing a nice crop of mold on it. The things I do for science....

    November 4, 2008

  • Certainly!

    August 13, 2008

  • I like fusc. Will you add it? :)

    August 13, 2008

  • Of course there is. It's Wordie.

    August 13, 2008

  • Hah! Oh, for `fusc's sake. There's a word for everything.

    August 13, 2008

  • Ahh, she, you speak of wodge! :)

  • I have been kindly redirected here from musquirt
    Wet bread was a plague upon my time in elementary school! By lunchtime, one slice of bread in my PBJ sandwich was always soaked with jelly.

    bilby.. that sounds terrifying. :(

    August 13, 2008

  • Appunto! I had it in Lecce.

    April 12, 2008

  • Got it: fresella!

  • Which part of Italy was it? I don't know it but I can search in some Italian websites.

    Oh, wait a second: some people use to do it with pistoccu, but I'm not sure if it's the one you are talking about. It's a Sardinian bread. And it's so much better when dry.

    April 12, 2008

  • In Italy they have this kind of bread, looks like bagels cut in half, that is sold dried. Tough, crusty, solid; you could play hoops with it. Now you get yourself some lukewarm water and dip the bread in it quickly, then let it sit for half a minute and re-hydrate. Then eat. It sounds kind of disgusting but I came to like it. It's a traditional kind of thing, probably a way of storing bread for months after grain harvest and milling. Prolagus might come up with a name for it.

  • Oh, it's real chocolate, all right. It's just been completely eviscerated before you eat it.

    White chocolate. Definitely an oxymoron. In fact, I'm tempted to add it to my Jumbo Shrimp list.

    October 12, 2007

  • White chocolate is definitely heavenly. I don't care if it's not real chocolate. :)

    October 12, 2007

  • True. True. In that case, though, I would argue that "open-face sandwich" is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. How the hell can it be a sandwich if it's not sandwiched?! It's an abomination.

    Like white chocolate. Oh yes it is.

    October 12, 2007

  • An open-faced Turkey sandwich covered in gravy is a good sandwich with soggy bread.

    October 12, 2007

  • All right. There are two kinds of wet bread that DON'T bother me, so in the interest of full disclosure:

    I love pickles. Pickle-soaked bread doesn't bother me, as long as it's not WET wet, like, "Gee, I really ought to wring this sandwich out before I take another bite" wet.

    Wodges of PB&J don't bother me either.

    October 12, 2007

  • Busted. I actually did that once. It was a particularly trying day, you see, and the last thing I needed was wet bread resulting from excessive pickle juice....Well, you know how it is.

    February 9, 2007

  • Now, I don't want anybody to think I'd actually do this, reesetee, but you could try blotting the pickle slice on a paper towel before tenderly laying it into the sammitch...

    February 9, 2007

  • Wow. Apparently, to avoid the scourge of wet bread, one must be careful always to have a plate at all times and never squeeze condiments directly onto the bread without testing first. Either I am a hugely lazy slob (always a possibility), or y'all're just anal about sandwiches.

    February 9, 2007

  • I do the same, oroboros. You can never be too careful when it comes to wet bread.

    But I still haven't figured out what to do about the pickle juice.

    February 9, 2007

  • Yeah, that can be a problem, so I've developed a habit of holding the squeeze bottle over the sink for a careful, small, test-squeeze.

    February 9, 2007

  • OK, there are other ways to get wet bread. Do you like mustard? Ketchup? You know if you don't shake it just right, or enough, the first thing out of the squeeze bottle is water? Doesn't matter if you have a plate or not.

    February 9, 2007

  • When I decide I need a plate, I hold the sandwich in one hand and get the plate with the other. Never had wet bread...just dropped sandwich! ;>D

    February 9, 2007

  • Never mind the wet bread--I didn't realize how many people used the word foldover this way. :-)

    February 9, 2007

  • When I eat sandwiches I tend to get crumbs everywhere, even using a plate, so I try not to.

    Although now that I think of it, a peanut butter fold over sounds pretty good...

    February 9, 2007

  • Really? You always, always grab a plate first, even if you're just making a peanut butter foldover?

    Sheesh. Make me feel like a sandwich skank, why don't you...

    February 9, 2007

  • Gotta agree with seanahan on this. But for my Nightmares! list I'll add salmonella puddle, in the similar vein of "nasty liquids on the kitchen counter."

    February 8, 2007

  • gross! Never happened to me and by God, I hope it never does.

    February 8, 2007

  • Wet bread IS the worst! I'm a bread-toaster and sandwich engineer, myself. Cheese and lettuce are perfect barriers for those seeping tomatoes...

    February 8, 2007

  • Sorry C_B, but I don't think I've ever decided to make a sandwich and not think, I better get a plate first.

    February 8, 2007

  • You know what this is. When you slap a sandwich together, then decide you need a plate after all, so you put the sandwich down on the counter for a sec to grab the plate. Of course you don't realize there's a spot of water on the counter--you don't realize it until, that is, you bite into... WET BREAD. Why, God, why?!
