Three Decker Sauerkraut and Toadstool Sandwich... with Arsenic Sauce.(Recharges after a Short Rest) During a short rest, the Grinch can use rotten foods to create a sandwich that only his strong stomach can digest.

Sated: Eating the sandwich gives the Grinch some health. He regains 2d10+6 health immediately, and 1d4 every round until the effects of the sandwich ware off.

...With Arsenic Sauce: Although it does not effect him, the sauce on his Horrendous Hoagey is still mixed in his mouth, and is harmful to other creatures. As an action, The Grinch can spit on another creature within 10 ft. This creature must succeed a DC 18 CON save or take 3d8 poison damage.
