I was actually just thinking about sandwiches yesterday, but more about how I don't eat them NEARLY as much as I used to. It's all salads for me :roll:

That said, my general rules have always been:

- Lightly toasted bread
- BOTH mayo & mustard, but sparingly
- Plenty of cheese. Gouda if you have it, Swiss if it's going to melt.
- Arugula >Spinach > Romaine. Don't even come at me with kale or shredded iceberg.
- Press that sucker flat like a cuban. With the amount of stuff I want in a sandwich, unpressed just isn't going to fit in my maw.

It also came to my attention recently that not everyone knows about giardiniera? It's hot pepper, carrots & cauliflower, pickled and preserved in vinegar. Very Italian, and very good on MANY if not all sandwiches. Also on brats, hot dogs, pasta, pizza, etc etc.

In re: your tweet earlier: Calzones. They're pizza AND a sandwich.

Brie, medium sharp cheddar, Monterey jack, and assorted salami on a baguette lovingly warmed in the oven.

I was going to put some mustard on it but figured it would stand on its own. It did.

When I was about seven years old, we went to a reunion of the bachelor pad my dad (and about eight other guys*) lived in after he got out of the Navy. It was an annual thing, eight or nine families that sort of knew each other playing board games while the guys got drunk and reminisced. One of them offered me a V8, telling me it was "juice", so fuck yeah, juice! I took a huge gulp of salt and anger (or so it tasted at the time) and spat it out into the wet bar sink (I was little so I was sitting up there anyway, and it was the early 80s, so of course every house had a rumpus room with a wet bar) to raucous laughter from all the guys.

So I don't drink V8. Took a while for me to even come around to bloody marys.



* It was a really big house, so much so that the basement--in LA, I know!--had a large pyramid of beer cans that was continually added on to.
