Being a newcomer, I am finding this site addictive. So many helpful people along with some great posts to read with a wealth of knowledge along with humour. Still trying to make sense of some of the terms such as ‘CARC’ and ‘Loop’.

Thanks to the person(s) who set it up.

As for sandwiches. Is it best to cut them diagonally or straight across the width?

Have a pleasant day and let’s hope for a lovely summer.

Depends which way you put your sausages in. With the grain or against?

Unless you have really puny arms why would you need to cut them in half at all? For those who are so afflicted. Address the sandwich and grasp it firmly in both hands with fingers spread and with your arms a comfortable distance apart. Then rest your elbows on the table and lift until the comestibles are conveniently presented directly in relation to your munching gear. Any dribbles or spillage of the contents can be staunched by careful application of pressure at the appropriate breach. Ignoring those around you dive in, only cleaning up any debris once the last crust has been savoured and swallowed!Big smile

Food & Luck, as explained to me by a friend whose engine had just blown for the umpteenth time:

"Some people are unlucky, they'll butter up one side of a toast, and it will fall butter side down."
"Some people are lucky, they'll butter up a toast, and it will fall butter side up".
"Some people are extremely lucky, they"ll butter up both sides, and it will fall and stand on its edge".

"Me, I'll butter up just the edge, and it will fall and stand on its edge..."

Well the main thing is in the making of a sandwich is ensuring that the crusts are pointing opposite direction. This ensures a consistant eating experience with no favoured end.

Diavalo, I too hail, (or rather hailed) from west Yorkshire. Bentham. 
Another mile west and you were in Lancashire. (There be dragons).
I grew up in an age where a cherry atop a slice of pineapple was the very epitome of sophistication, and diagonally cut sandwiches were the sole preserve of the middle-class.
A straight cut sarny is liable to leave you with demeaning evidence in the corners of your mouth, while a diagonal presents three tempting corners to attack with relative impunity regarding collateral crumbs.
You will search in vain for crumbs in the beards of those who occupy, by right, the High Moral Ground.
Crusts, with their overtones of poverty, were amputated automatically, preferably with a slight shudder.
And cucumber, usually sans vinaigrette, was all that lay within ...

Here in the mountains of Andalusia, we tear a lump off the loaf and slart on the comestible of choice, but such sophistication is rare.

ah, crisps! When I was a boy, you could buy a packet of broken crisps, with the little blue twist of salt therein.  These bags were absolutely crammed to almost bursting point.  Poured onto a slice of bread, they made a delicious, nourishing sandwich.
The foregoing, of course, is fantasy.  One has no idea how to prepare food, as, at Fook Hall, ones man prepares ones sustenance🎩

The only crisps to make crisp sandwiches from are Kettle Chips. But only buy them when they are on offer at a quid a bag. I also use the spreadable butter stuff which of course, has added OIL. I'm not sure what the oil is but which do you think would be best? This is a bit like 'Mornington Crescent'.
