What comes to mind when you see/hear my name? (Ruben)

Yes... in case you haven't noticed, Ruben is my real name. Ruben in it's Spanish form, or Reuben in it's English translation.

Growing up it was cool because it was not common like Carlos, Luis or Juan who are a dime a dozen. At a mall full with people, hearing somebody scream "RUBEN!" was more than likely somebody calling me... awesome.

Some people told me that the name reminds them of a baseball player, others mention Ruben Berrios, a puertorican political figure. But very few say they have met another Ruben besides me.

In the states, somebody had the wonderful idea of nickname an eff sandwich after me. It took me a few months to figure out why perfectly straight Caucasian males often say I was "tasty... Mmmmm".

So, when you see/hear Ruben... what comes to mind? A sandwich, some guy from the bikeforums? some other Ruben you know?

Do you have an unusual name or nickname yourself?

With thousand island dressing and a buttload of corned beef. And fried on rye.

I think I made these for dinner last week, maybe the week before...

It is excellent camping fare (not backpacking) with a pie iron (cast iron, of course).



Ignore the grilled cheese. I make fired egg sandwiches, pizza and Reubens in this device.

Turkey is a reasonable low-fat substitution for corned beef in a Reuben.

Does this even make sense?

Another vote for sandwich. But I don't like them, I'm not fond of sauerkraut.

I have a restaurant near me that always makes unusual soups. Happened to catch the day they made a Reuben soup. It was a "chowdery" swiss cheese base with sauerkraut and strips of corned beef, served with rye toast points - and it was delicious.
