Children's Book Including a Spaghetti Sandwich
January 14, 2014 9:21 AM Subscribe
My partner and I were remembering our differing childhood experiences of homemade spaghetti. At one point, she brought up using the leftovers in a spaghetti sandwich. I've never had one, but this triggered a vivid memory of a favorite picture book which had at least one illustration of a spaghetti sandwich. Among other odd sandwiches, possibly. I'd love to remember the title of the book and, ideally, see that illustration.

I don't think the book focused on sandwiches, or maybe even food. I believe the sandwiches were an incidental part of the day the protagonist was having. Maybe they were taking care of themselves for the day, for some reason? The protagonist may have been a young, anthropomorphized animal. In my memory, the illustration style looks a lot like Richard Scarry. However, my own googlings and image searches have turned up nothing.
Anyone know what I'm describing? I'd especially love a photo of that illustration, to verify it's what I'm remembering.
