Every once in a while, when I start to think about the ingredients we might have, i get really excited about the prospect of making a sandwich. My thought process is as follows:
Let's see, we have bread--check,
lunchmeat of some kind--check,
ooh, tomatoes!--check! [increasing excitement]
and butter lettuce!-check!
This happened the other day, and with that bubbling over sandwich excitement, I asked Sean if he wanted me to make him one. I told him all the things we had and started to get them out. One by one i listed all of the many delicious ingredients from which to choose and he thought a minute and said, "hmm... well, a cheese and mustard sandwich sounds good."
I know, right? What a waste! Trying not to crestfall, I replied, "okie dokie, a Nothing Sandwich comin' right up!" And that's what I made and that's what he ate and he never will know the Sandwich that Might Have Been. I would say that generally speaking, this is Sean's preferred sandwich. Again, I know.
When I was young I used to have a favorite. And if it's my favorite then of course I would name it after myself. Its name was the Jen Deluxe. Basically it was a grilled cheese with tomato and mayo. Sounds boring but if you call it the Jen Deluxe, it is not.
Having written this I'm feeling all sandwich daydreamy. And I'm curious: What's your Dream Sandwich? If you could make any sandwich in the world with all the ingredients you'd ever want?
