There was a time in my younger life where I wouldn't have touched sweet pickles or their relish with a ten foot pole. I was a dill pickle girl all the way and firmly believed that relish should be salty and dilly.
But that has all changed and I only want sweet relish. A hot dog isn't as good without the sweet stuff and a ton of ketchup.
Today I went home for lunch and it was cold and rainy and I had to put drops in Emma Beagles eyes and I just wanted a treat, like a sandwich with tuna and mayo and sweet relish.
It was so good, I savored every single bite, slowly eating while my dogs sat at my feet ever hopeful. They were disappointed because I did not want to share a crumb.
The younger me would have picked and nibbled and made a mess but not really eaten that sandwich. Sweet relish in tuna? What's next? Miracle Whip?
Hmmmm.....Miracle Whip......now there's an interesting idea!
