  • Column: The morbid joy of funeral sandwiches

    Jack H. Smith, Three Forks Voice|Sep 7, 2022

    Every so often, I get in a bit of a rut when it comes to the nightly dinner menu, and we seem to be eating tacos and spaghetti a bit more than we probably should. While there is certainly nothing wrong with either, we probably eat them more than we should, and this rut usually serves as a great way to introduce some new items to the dinner table. A few weeks ago, I wanted to break loose from the blasé menu and bring back an old favorite we had not eaten in a few years. We had planned on watching a UFC fight, so it seemed like a perfect... Full story
