Dagwood Bumstead is a main character in cartoonist Chic Young’s long-running comic strip Blondie. He first appeared sometime prior to 17 February 1933.

DagwoodDagwood was originally heir to the Bumstead Locomotive fortune but was disowned when he married a flapper (originally known as Blondie Boopadoop) whom his family saw as below his class. He has since worked hard at J. C. Dithers & Company (currently as the construction company’s office manager) to support his family. The Bumsteads’ first baby, Alexander, was originally named Baby Dumpling. The name of his younger sister, Cookie, was chosen by readers in a national contest. The family circle is rounded out by Daisy the dog. The origin of both Dagwood’s last name and Daisy’s name came from Chic Young’s long-time friend Arthur Bumstead and his dog, Daisy.

BLT Sandwich with Cheese / BLT Sandwich med Ost

A sandwich recipe from “Are You Hungry Tonight?”
published in 1992
blt with cheese sandwich_post

Elvis loved a good BLT, probably because two of the ingredients were at the top of his roster of favorites: bacon and big old juicy beefsteak tomatoes. He loved tomatoes. While you’re assembling this sandwich, you may want to put “Just For You” on the record player. And remember: Elvis preferred well-done bacon, not actually burned to charcoal, but cooked very crispy.

Lobster Lunch / Hummer Lunsj

A fancy lunch recipe found on godt.no
lobster roll_godt_post

This is simply a small lobster sandwich. It’s nice fresh bread stuffed with homemade lobster salad; You use good quality hot dog buns or halved baguettes and a fully cooked lobster.

The most complicated part of this dish is to clean the boiled lobster; if you have not done this before, it is quite amazing how much fumbling it might take to get it done  😉

I love shellfish, but how come the most expensive of them is, at least served au naturel, the most tasteless and boring of them all. Lobster may be regarded as the finest, but hey, give me crabs any day. Here’s a very nice way to serve crabs as a filling starter or lunch – Ted
