I thought I already answered this, but looking, I guess not. For me, of all things, it is sandwiches. I rarely order one in a restaurant. My husband jokes that I take after my father. I swear, for some reason I eat a sandwich and after two bites it turns in to a mess. I can eat some of the messiest foods known to mankind, and a Chinese friend actually told me that I was the most graceful person to handle chopsticks she'd ever met. But hand me a sandwich and it will be all over the plate, my chest, my plate. Why is this?

Claire, do you cut your sandwiches in half? I never do cut mine, but I read somewhere that cutting them on a diagonal is the best way to keep everything in place. Once I thought about it for a second it made perfect sense to me.

I like to do that for messy sandwiches too, not only does it hold together well, but it often makes it look good too.
