So Many Things to Tell...

Our trip to Buffalo/Niagara/Toronto was really fun. We actually relaxed and took an easy pace. We had some sandwiches and other local delicacies. We went to the Canadian National Exhibition to see if it could hold a candle to the Minnesota State Fair (it can't) and we took photos of everything we ate. That will be a separate post. Here are some sandwich highlights from the trip!
We compared competing beef on weck sandwiches in Buffalo:
That's the Anchor Bar (originator of Buffalo wings) beef on weck on the left. On the right is the beef on weck from Charlie the Butcher. The verdict? Go to the Anchor Bar for wings. Go to Charlie the Butcher for beef on weck. That sandwich is awesome!

Look at this pretty four cheese panini. The four cheeses are marscapone, swiss, feta, and mozzarella. There are some chopped up tomatoes thrown in for good measure. Delicious. This restaurant near our hotel in Toronto also served crepes. I love crepes. But not as much as sandwiches. Don't freak out.

This is a Spadina Street Hot Dog I got at the Minnesota Twins/Toronto Blue Jays game we went to. They fried the all beef kosher dog on a griddle, then topped it with almost caramelized onions. I added all kinds of relish and pickled hot peppers and mustard. There was only one stand selling such a lovely dog. The rest of the stands were selling regular old hot dogs. Nice find! Oh, and the Twins lost. Bummer. At least my tummy was happy.

And finally, here is the turkey club panini I ate when we visited the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY. The turkey was sliced from a real roasted turkey breast and there was good bacon and sliced avocado and tomato on it. I can't remember the cheese--it was white and helped hold it all together.
