I love reuben sandwiches, but I have never attempted to make one. It's usually something I order in restaurants, but when I stumbled across a recipe for reubens in one of my crock pot cook books I couldn't resist trying it. I put about five ingredients in the pot just after breakfast, and come dinner time all I do is add cheese, a little 1000 island dressing, and bread? Um, yes please! Ok, so I also added homemade sweet potato fries to round out the meal, but those are super-easy too. Anyway, the sandwiches turned out so good! I was very pleased with myself. I wolfed mine down, and looked over at Tyson across the table with a big, proud grin on my face. I mean, really, these things were better than I've had in many restaurants. I asked, "Did you like the sandwich?" To which he replies over his half-eaten sandwich, "Eh. I don't really like reubens." GASP! Of course I took it as a total insult to my cooking ability, which is not how he meant it at all, but still. At least he came up later and told me how he loves it that I try new things with my cooking. Don't you hate it when someone totally bursts your bubble like that?

Yeah - my hubby has done that to me too - I've busted my butt to make something from scratch and his response is "Meh - its kind of bland". Which is why I now just stick to making bread and yogurt and he can deal with the "real food". I recently saw a "Diners, Dives and Drive Ins" with an amazing looking reuben - I too dont even usually like them, but dang, that looked tasty.

Aw, that's why I try to never cook. :) Unfortunately, me not cooking doesn't mesh with our new budget, so I've become a devoted cookbook follower, never deviating from a recipe...that way I always have someone else to blame if it sucks!

However, I agree with you, I DO hate it when someone bursts your bubble, even if they totally didn't mean to. It still feels yukky
