Slack Tea Thursday

This may be my slackest dinner yet...seriously. (Aside from that time I had a bad day at work and had Southern Comfort and Coke for dinner)

This week I'm bringing you a tutorial so you can all try this at home. I'm worried this recipe while slack is a bit complex without the pictures.  I don't know if this is eaten in other countries, but it's really big here amongst the Primary School crowd. Or at least it was when I went to school in the dark ages prior to the invention of the wheel and fire.

Take two slices of ordinary white  bread. (Dont try to health this up by using wholemeal or grain or your head will probably explode because you'll be defying the laws of nature)

Smother those slices with butter - I didn't say this was healthy.





Add chips...I chose chicken (bascially to annoy Ms. Chicken's Consigliere, who gets very upset every time I mention eating anything chicken...)






Smoosh it all together.



Voila... Dinner! Crunch that sammich!


Alternative dinner: Roll stuffed with twisties . Same principle. Just pull out the roll guts and stuff the twisties in.




Total investment in making dinner. Bread, butter and a pack of chips. Or one roll and a pack of twisties.  Time commitment: two minutes including clean up. How good does this look? How slack !  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm....


Thanks to Susie who inspired this post with her reminiscing of chip sammiches over lunch last Friday.

My god that takes me back. Crescent roll and pkt of twisties was staple lunch at high school. Can't imagine that they have that these days with all food colour coded for its goodness. Maybe highschool is different but nothing like that at our primary school... can't say that I am against that though.

The queen of slack. This is a winner! I agree it would be disgusting on "healthy" bread, it has to be white. What am I saying....I would never eat this, it ruins a perfectly good bag of chips. Mmmmmmm chicken thins, they are the best. mmmmmmmm.

Well this is slack - and yes very popular in my high school days.

Have to say that I had the twistie version for dinner a couple of weeks ago after working late. Yumm

Lorraine said...

crap....wish I had read this before I cooked up a storm for my dinner......toast with tomato is classed as cooking up a storm....isn't it? I agree the white bread is a must...the fresher the better....and lots of butter.....yummo! .....and has to be chicken chips....!

Deb said...

Oh yes I am there....... extra fresh bread .....butter...... BUT salt and vinegar chippies.... yumm...
hugs Deb

chicken chips? very interesting.
I've honestly never seen anything like a chip and butter sandwich, but it looks pretty awesome!
I laughed out loud at the picture of the hollowed-out roll with cheetos (what they are called here) in the middle!
great, great post!
I be the Southern Comfort and Coke went perfectly...hope your week gets better-

Was there a beer involved? Gotta wash those sammies down with something.

Mrs. P, you always amaze me with your culinary skills. You should write a book! I have never heard of chicken flavored chips! They don't sound too appealing to me. I was just talking to The Baby about cheese sandwiches with chips - probably too much protein for you!

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

I don't think you can buy "Chicken" chips in the US. What do they taste like? snicker. That sandwich should look revolting to me but it is strangely appealing.

Brenda said...

Oh my, this takes the cake! I do put chips on tuna salad sandwiches, but never thought to try them with just butter - hmmmmm. And the cheeto-surprise is hilarious! I'm trying to think what we eat here, that might seem weird to you Aussies - maybe fish tacos, although those are really from Mexico.

My kids would love to come have tea with you on Thursdays. They claim my food is "disgusting". (Little monsters!)

AnnieO said...

Revolting! All the spit in my mouth dried up at the thought of chicken flavored chips. Ew.

The Flabby Ninja said...

I am shaming the entire race of Fat Bottom Girls, when I say I have NEVER had a chip sandwich. My only wish is that I would go back in time to before the days when my stomach was the size of a thimble and give it a go!

When I was growing up, I used to take a brown paper sack of mayonnaise(heavy on the mayo) sandwiches and a book and go climb a pepper tree. Picnic and book--yum. Of course, I did not know of the good ness of chicken chips at the time.

Elizabeth said...

I think I read this post like three hours ago and got so sidetracked with The Chicken's blog and then with her daughter's blog that I'm finally getting back to commenting here. The chicken flavored chips, I'm interested in trying. On buttered bread? Not so much. I'm still rooting for a slack tea involving ice cream straight from the container with a plastic spoon.

On a different topic, I was telling Mr. Bug about the post with the sharks with frickin' lasers on their heads and now my kids are putting frickin' lasers on everything. It would be funny, except I kind of object to my Little Bugs using the word frickin' because it is only a matter of time before they catch on to what that really means.

Anyway, I sent him a link to your translation Tuesdays posts. He was highly amused and last time I checked he was reading about the creepy crawlies and heading for the vegemite post, which was of great interest to him. Thanks for making blogland a fun place to be. Expect a shout-out from me later today. It'll probably be tomorrow for you.
xo, -E

Dang it! I don't know where to get chicken flavored crisps! UGH...I wonder if Funyuns would work. Y'know, onion flavored rings that make your breath stink like garbage trunk with dead body in it on a hot summer day? Yep. I might try those out for dinner. I wonder what the Mister is going to say. "Hey, Honey, this is slack tea Thursday and it's too damn hot to cook...Voila!"

You simply crack me up...

Michelle said...

LOL! Now that IS slack! I have put potato chips on sandwiches that had other things on them, but never just chips. Hmmmm. Chicken Chips, I've got to wonder....

Baa-Me Kniits said...

I think I just lost my appetite :-)

Alisa said...

That is slack. I bow down to you Queen. Even my husband (he was reading over my shoulder, how I absolutely HATE when he does that) was dying. He now totally understands why I like you so very much.

lw said...

This is the slackest tea yet-- all hail the Queen of the Slack Tea!

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

Yep...I reckon this one is going to be hard to beat. I'll just have to put my thinking cap on to come up with something slacker...
