Homer Simpson Appears in Cheese and Tomato Sandwich

There’s a centuries old New Year tradition in our family.

For generations, Ouimet’s have celebrated the wee hours of the new year with a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich.

This year, like every other, I followed the family tradition to the letter, as handed down from Ouimet to Ouimet


In case you’re having trouble reading the scanned document:

  • slice white bread, thick
  • slice tomato, thin
  • slice Canadian cheddar, medium
  • place tomato slices on bread
  • cover with sliced cheese
  • grind black pepper, coarse
  • grill on open fire until cheese melts
  • eat and celebrate the New Year

Maybe it was just the way the light played on the cheddar, maybe my eyes were tired, I really can’t explain it. Imagine my surprise when I sat down to eat my New Year sandwich when I looked down at the plate.

Judge for yourself.


Holy Springfield ! Some kind of miracle ! What a way to start 2008 !

I probably should try to sell it on eBay.
