A hero, a roll, a slice of pita or maybe just two pieces of bread. And something to put inside that bread. That's what I like. Gimme, gimme, gimme a great sandwich. And don't be half-ass about it. If it's gonna be tuna salad or egg salad, jazz it up a bit. If you want to make it as simple as bologna, how about fried bologna? All I'm saying is that I just don't want something hastily thrown together. I need some thought put into it.
This coming Friday is my birthday, and Gia wanted to know what I wanted. And, like every year, I have no response to that. I don't really need or want any kind of gift. I don't pine for objects I don't have. If I want something bad enough, I don't wait for someone to buy it for me. That's just been a part of my DNA forever.
So this year, I asked her to research the best sandwiches to be had in NYC. I'm taking the day off and we are going to head in early for breakfast at this bakery I've been dying to try. Then walk around some, maybe do some shopping, maybe have a beer someplace before heading to the sammich joint late in the afternoon to see what we see.
That's what I want to do on my birthday. Have an incredible sandwich experience. Insert gay joke from Slyde here. Yeah...he's THAT obvious.
Oh...so we've got this food blog called Simmer, Sip, Share going on as well. I've been a little lax with posting over there lately. So I've decided to make it Sandwich Week over there. I'm going to post once a day about a great sandwich that I've made or enjoyed. I encourage everyone who contributes to the blog (you know who you are) to join in on the fun, if they so wish.
Let's start off the week with this bad boy:
|Yeah...that's a paper plate. Deal with it...|
Looks delicious, right? Wanna know what it is? Well, you'll have to go here to find out. Heheheh.
Welcome to Sandwich Week!
