I chose to sit out the great chicken sandwich wars last fall. It was not our fight. Not our lane.

Filet-O-Fish sandwich

But I’m all in for the Great Fish Sandwich War of 2020. This is different. Our dignity is at stake. Arby’s, the roast beef sandwich place, has used social media and TV ads to question our very legitimacy by picking a fight with McDonald’s over its legendary Filet-O-Fish sandwich.

Arby’s is trolling McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish. Pictures of badly made Filet-O-Fish sandwiches fill its Twitter feed. In a YouTube ad, Arby’s pokes fun, “Stop eating Filet-O-Fishes. Eat Arby’s Crispy Fishes.” Arby’s says it is offering bigger sandwiches at a lower price, but for a limited time.

This is heresy.

The McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich is a native Cincinnatian, born in 1962 at 5425 West North Bend Road, the brainchild of one of the first McDonald’s franchisees, Lou Groen. The humble little sandwich is right up there with Benadryl, the Easy-Bake Oven, Play-Doh and Pampers as great inventions from Cincinnati……………………………..

Today’s Menu: Arby’s Ham and Cheese Sliders and Baked Crinkle Fries



Arby's Ham and Cheese Sliders and Baked Crinkle Fries 009

Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market so this morning after i prepared us Breakfast that’s where we went. I love shopping at Jungle Jim’s! There’s always some different items every time you shop here. I picked up some Deli Meats and Cheese, Polenta, and some Seafood. Back home finished up some laundry for Mom and went to the rehab center to see Dad for a while. They told us at rehab that they tested his memory and he’s lost about 50% of his memory. Only going to get worse with dementia. For dinner tonight Arby’s Ham and Cheese Sliders and Baked Crinkle Fries.




Arby's Ham and Cheese Sliders and Baked Crinkle Fries 001
Another one of those days where I had dinner planned out and it just didn’t work out. I was at the rehab with Dad longer than I thought I was going to be and when I left to come home I just didn’t feel like cooking. So I had heard that Arby’s Sliders were very good so I stopped there and picked up 2 of the Ham and Cheese Sliders. I opted to go with the Ham Slider over the Roast Beef, fewer calories. First time I tried these and really like them! Fantastic Slider Bun and excellent Ham. I’ve always loved the Arby’s Ham sandwiches, just don’t eat out often.


Then I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. These have a lot fewer calories, carbs, and fat than Arby’s or any take-out Fries. I had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping also. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.





* Roast Ham
* Melted Cheese
* Mini Bun
​​Thinly sliced ham and melted cheese on a soft slider roll. So you can have a little ham on the side, or 10 of them on their own. Up to you.
