The Monte Cristo, some say it was created for the Count of Monte Cristo (which fits with the Halloween time - y'know, 'Counts' and all.) But let's look at a small timeline of the sandwich in the 1900's:
|Hello! New Orleans Square - Haunted Mansion!|
"Calorie counters should avoid the "Monte Cristo" sandwich." I read on a blog. BAAAAH. and DUUH, at the same time!
|Some Countess.. maybe it was me? Do we look similar?|
So, once upon a time I saw a psychic and she told me in a past life I was a countess. (fancy eh?) So I am going to take a little of my past life and throw it into my present and call this sandwich the 'Funky Sweet' (You know, I'm the countess of the house of Funke - and to prove it, just keep reading on)
Buf for now, let's do the numbreos, shall we?

I don't know about you, but it's almost Halloween and I'm still not scared.. of anything, least of all the nutrition count of my veganized Monte Cristo. No, no, no. "They tried to make me go back to carnivore life, and I said noo nooo noooo". ;)
Ok, well anyway. All Amy Winehouse picking aside.. this sandwich is going to be my lunch, maybe on Saturday.. oh, Maybe on Sunday. I've not decided yet. Regardless it's going to be mine.. all MINE! WAHAHAHAHAHA
|Countess Elizabeth Bathory, that makes more sense, right?|
Providing I haven't 'scared' anyone so close to our Halloween veganization (so close, yet a whole week away!) Maybe you'll be just as excited to partake in a vegan monte cristo as I am someday. Maybe you've read thus far. And because you DID read thus far.. I'm about to tell you how it is that I am the Countess of the House Of Funke...
It's because she loves me, her spirits love me, and the world thinks she's beautiful - or at least the City of Covington does.
Proof? Take a look at the photo taken last night. :)
|Too bad the sister didn't get me LOOKING at the camera when I got my beautification award.|
When the sun rises on the weekend (or maybe when it's already in the sky) I will be making this sandwich.. you will be sad because you're not eating it with me... but I will not be alone.. I am never alone in my home. (pan the scary music).
Keep an eye out (not literally) here for my sandwich!
