I think I'll pass!

This from Reuters news:

"London's most expensive sandwich, nick-named 'The MacDonald Sandwich', is seen at Selfridges in London April 10, 2006. The sandwich, which is on sale for 85 pounds ($148 dollars), contains ingredients of Wagyu beef, fresh lobe foie gras, black truffle mayonnaise, brie de meaux, rocket, red pepper and mustard confit and English plum tomatoes."   REUTERS/Paul Hackett

I could buy about ten days' worth of groceries for that price.

It does look good although I don't really know what the meanings are on the ingredients. $185.00 ha ha. Helen

It just looks like a roast beef sandwich with tomato, cheese and lettuce.... I bet we could eat those for a month with the $148 LOL

I think that sandwich would be worth it for me - you'd have to tie me down to eat it so it would actually last me the rest of my life!

I could buy a week's worth of groceries for that price!  And, if I had enough money to blow on a sandwich at that price, I'm pretty sure I'd spend on something that would last!  I'll pass too.
