Lately my mind keeps envisioning my favorite sandwich, the Big Al's Saturday Night from Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The problem is that I live a good 7+ hours away. This sandwich haunts me with a crusty outside of the Paesano roll, the airy inside of the bread nestled around warm smoked mozzarella, roasted piquillo peppers, lettuce, tomato, and balsamic vinegar and olive oil dripping over the sides....ahhh, bliss.
So with thoughts of good sandwiches lodged in my brain, I spent a good portion of a meeting on Monday coveting my friend B's sandwich--two slices of whole wheat bread, baby lettuces, and white bean spread with tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions. I wanted that sandwich!
And so, my ever gracious friend brought me one yesterday, and I brought her a bowl of my lentil soup, and we both had a delicious lunch topped off with this week's TWD special. What a delightful way to create a lunch, and what a great way to soothe the sandwich longing!
