Luckily, there's a French Meadow right in the middle of the terminal. And they sell good beer. That's a tasty walleye sandwich with awesome coleslaw. And a delicious Bell's Two Hearted.
So thanks, crazy dude, for saving me from dining on a soggy grab and go sandwich!

We will be making Jucy Lucy sliders with all kinds of fillings! Why sliders? So you can make more flavor combos, of course. We're thinking bacon, blue cheese, garlic, provolone, and Angies got some crazy olive relish idea. Hmmm...muffuletta lucy?
Come over Wednesday, April 21 and join us!

Then I saw a show on the Food Channel called The Best Thing I Ever Ate. One of the talking heads described a guacamole recipe with sage, bacon and blue cheese. It sounded just crazy enough to be amazing.
And it was, on a French roll with turkey and mayonnaise. Beth, Angie and I glopped huge amounts of it on the sandwiches. And luckily I found 1/3 of a bag of Fritos in the cupboard to take care of the rest of the guac. What a guac-fest! It's a healthy fat, right?

I know that googling sandwich and Everett's together will get you to me. But Teamster sandwich? Admittedly, it's one of the funniest episodes of 30 Rock ever. And I've blogged about it a couple times. But I don't understand the mysterious ways of the Google and how I ended up on top.
I'm glad I checked it out, though. Because #2 on the Teamster sandwich search? A blog post by someone who hunted the elusive treat down! Someday I will get myself to Fiore's in Hoboken, NJ on a Thursday or a Saturday to try it myself.
UPDATE: OMG!! Fiore's delivers! I'm scared to see how much shipping costs on a $15 sandwich, though.

They were really good--all the gooey sweetness of s'mores with a little crunch from the sugar coating on the Peep. We used blue chicks.

On Thursday I went out for cemitas at La Fonda. Cemitas are similar to tortas, but are served on big, soft sweet buns with sesame seeds. They are fantastic. The soft and sweet bread is a good counter to all the savory goodness inside. I got carnitas, but they also have a tasty milanesa. In addition to meat, there's avocado, Oaxacan string cheese, lettuce, beans, hot pickles and hot sauces. There's probably more stuff in there, too. It's a messy gooey treat!
On Friday, I went for sandwiches at the St. Paul Cheese Shop. It's a pretty new store, right by my alma mater, Macalester. I had heard about it, but didn't know they made sandwiches with their fancy cheeses and cured meats. Now I do, thanks to Karen! I ordered ham, butter and comte cheese on a ciabatta roll. Karen got Spanish chorizo, manchego and quince paste on ciabatta. My sandwich was simple and delicious. The ham, butter, and cheese were all high quality and the flavors worked well together. Condiments are unnecessary when the ingredients are great. I had a bite of Karen's sandwich and it was pretty awesome. I also had to get one of their gooey Valrhona chocolate brownies for good measure. It was very good, almost as good as mine!
The St. Paul Cheese Shop is located a couple of doors away from the original Dunn Brothers coffee, so you can pick up a tasty cold press coffee to go with your sandwich. The coffee tastes better at the original, don't you think?
