As I sit here today, having just finished the frozen garbage that I could scrounge up this morning before leaving the house, I am thinking to myself, what is my absolute favorite sandwhich in the world?
I am a big fan of almost anything being laid on two pieces of bread, whether it be Peanut Butter and Jelly on White Bread, or Pastrami on Rye. but I would have say that my all time absolute favorite is a really good Reuben. There is just something about the flavor of Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, Swiss Cheese, and Dressing on Rye Bread that just works for me. I can't stand any one of these things on their own, but put them together on a plate with a pickle and chips and I am in Sandwhich Heaven.
So what is your favorite Sandwhich? And sorry if this inspires any unnecessary trips to the Kitchen.
I once had a roasted chicken breast sandwich with roasted peppers, mixed greens, and a balsamic dressing on freshly baked focaccia that was so good I considered throwing it up just so I could eat it again.
My wifes family was glad that I showed up, the four of them would get the biggest turkey they could find and not even eat an eighth of it. That first Thanksgiving, they all sat there in amazement as I polished off my 5th plate. As time has done a number on my metabolism, I struggle to get through a plate and a half anymore. Thankfully my boys have now picked up the torch and making short work Tom Turkey sitting on the table.
I understand. That is comfort food. I know that whenever I am feeling very down, I go and eat a fried bologna sandwhich on white bread. It is an absolutely awful sandwhich most of the time but it is something that my mother would feed us when we were children. Gotta love comfort food.

Mention one thing she said, like "I had a great time with you yesterday, what you said about ... was especially funny." or whatever and see how she responds. I wouldn't push for a next date but…"
