How it began

It's January. It's Minnesota. It's actually not that cold this year (thanks CO2!) but it's still bleak January. It's best to have a project, right?
Our squatter, Angie, got us watching Heroes last fall. There was a long break for the show over the holidays. New episodes were set to begin January 22nd. to celebrate. By making a giant hero sandwich, perhaps?

After days of agonizing debate, (what kinds of meat? where will we get the bread? what kinds of condiments?) Angie and I found ourselves at Cossetta's Italian Market and Pizzeria in St.Paul. After recovering from our shock at all of the delicious choices facing us we settled on prosciutto, Italian roast beef, porketta, hot soppresata and Molinari Toscano salami. On Cossetta's Vienna Bread. With mozzarella and provolone. And roasted red peppers, chopped artichoke hearts, red onions, romaine lettuce and tomatoes.

I haven't been so giddy on a Monday in ages
