I wonder if the fact that we've been watching Adam Richman's Best Sandwich in America has anything to do with it??
When we went to Portland on vacation, we actually visited the Big A** Sandwich Food truck that was featured on the show. We had to try the sandwich with roast beef, cheese sauce, and french fries. Amanda decided she wanted that one, and the rest of us found our picks at other food carts for variety. I opted for a very smoky roasted chicken and spinach sandwich on a flatbread with a homemade garlic mayo. It was gooood.
Terry definitely won the extreme sandwich award. He was drawn to the grilled cheese cart, where he ordered the hamburger that had a grilled-cheese sandwich on each side for the bun.
Kyle still salivates over Jimmy John's, Subway, Schlotzsky's, and even the sub sandwich that I picked up at the supermarket one day when we were on the go. We tried out a new Cuban restaurant that just opened nearby, and he was quite excited to have the Cuban sandwich. If it's called a sandwich, his eyes go wide and he grins with anticipation.
I'm hoping that this love of all things sandwich will continue, at least as far as lunchtime goes. He's even said he'll take bologna or turkey or ham in his lunch at school, but I'm not sure that will stick. I'm going to try, because the I like the lunchbox to maintain some variety.
Is it just me -- or do your kids go in and out of sandwich phases?
