If you know me, you know I'm a total foodie. I love food, love cooking, going grocery shopping, going out to dinner, watching cooking shows (though not on the Food Network anymore because it's nothing but barbeque and cake decorating contests and not serious cooking shows), buying every gadget and utensil for the kitchen (I actually have a mango slicer!) and finding that perfect something that you have to have over and over again.
Like the perfect sandwich.
And I've discovered it.
There's a place here in Boston called Sam LaGrassa's. They're in the heart of the financial district and cater to very busy financial types who want a quick meal on the run. They're also terribly nice and will cater to me and my company with a speedy delivery of their amazing grilled sandwiches.
Mmmm...are you salivating?
The most perfect of all their sandwiches is the half turkey/half ham with Swiss cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing. The bread is grilled to perfection with just a hint of butter on top and the cheese just oozes in your mouth. Top it off with one of Sam's amazing homemade pickles and it's a lunch to die for.
Recently, I bought my own Hamilton Beach panini grill and let me tell you, it has changed my life. I grill everything now. It's so easy to use, easy to clean and you can have your meal ready in about four minutes. And it's preeeeeeeeeeetty...
I wish I had had something like this in college. I never would have left the dorm room...well, only to get meats, cheeses and breads. Hmmm...maybe I should write a sandwich grill into my sorority series?
So...what to you is the most perfect sandwich? Where does it come from?
Now that I've made myself hungry, it's off to eat my Sam's sandwich...
