Recent sandwich happenings...

I had a great porketta sandwich with hot giardinera peppers from Buon Giorno on Friday. They cut a slit in the side of a crusty hoagie roll and stuff the sliced porketta, au jus, and peppers into it. That way, the outside of the bread remains hard and the inside gets all delicious and squishy. As long as you eat it promptly, of course.

Yesterday I made BLTs from Everett's bacon (of course), hydroponic tomatoes from the farmer's market (I sliced them, then salted and peppered them before I put them on the sandwich), red leaf lettuce and the fancy garlic herb mayonnaise from grilled vegetable sandwich night. I put the whole works on toated English muffin toasting bread. Yum!

And finally, I made some lovely chicken sandwiches from leftover rotisserie chicken, sourdough bread, the super hot Trader Joe's Dijon mustard and red leaf lettuce. We are sadly out of the Trader Joe's mustard now. Hopefully they will still be stocking it next time we make it out there!

I am now resolved to photograph some of these sandwiches before I eat them, so you can see them! Aaaah, the lessons I learn...

I'm at Trader Joe's at least once a week. What's the name of your dijon? Is it "Moutarde de Dijon, Dijon Mustard with white wine"? (That's the kind I get- 13 oz bottle?)I'd be happy to send it out to support the Sandwich Cause.

Trader Joe's isn't that far from us--only about 8 miles away--but they are trafficky so we don't go there too often.
My next Dijon mustard is some fancy stuff my sent me that came in a little metal pail. That is, a glass jar of mustard in a pail. She got it at some boutique in Boston. Meghan told her to get it. They are nuts!
Once I finish that, I can get some more Trader Joe's. And Kashi--it's so cheap there!

I am not nuts.

I was just kidding!
Meghan is not nuts. In fact, she is perfectly sane, despite the fact that she is married to my crazy brother.

Meghan said...

thank you. Speaking of crazy--who is the person that has started a blog about sandwiches?

I'm glad to see the "crazy" controversy has been cleared up.
It was getting heated.
