The answers to today’s Strands, game #42, are…

  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: Perfect

Sandwiches are objectively the best food, so this one should have been right up my street. Unfortunately, I’ve never eaten a club sandwich, so found it slightly harder than some people might have done. Why? Well, the fact that I’m a vegetarian is probably the main reason, but to that I can add that a) mayonnaise is the devil’s condiment, b) the best sandwiches are simple, not stuffed with needless ingredients. Just give me mature cheddar with salted butter and freshly baked bread and I’m in heaven.

Anyway, for that reason I found it difficult to uncover all of the words until MAYONNAISE gave the board some structure, after which point it was easier to spot the remaining answers. Even then, it took me a while to see PICKLE; why would you put pickle in a sandwich that already has all of that in it? Madness.

How did you do today? Send me an email and let me know.
