Today is National Sandwich Day!

Today is National Sandwich Day!


My friend Pat Mayberry of Southern Elegance Catering reminded me that today was National Sandwich Day! 
Sandwich 1

It is thought that the 4th Earl of Sandwich John Montagu was the designer of the sandwich. It is said that the Earl would spend so many hours at the gambling table that he would asks the servants to put slices of meat between bread so he could keep on playing. Soon his gambling mates would also ask for sandwiches to that they too could stay at the gambling tables.


Thank you Pat for the image of this sandwich.

I love a good sandwich. I think Ruben is my very favorite, of course I love a good PB&J too.  If I'd seen this earlier I might have opted sandwich for dinner... makes for super easy clean up.

Thanks for the heads' up on National Sandwich Day Sussie!  I did not know there was such a day!  Sandwiches are standard fare for lunch around here.  Love, love, love PEANUT BUTTER.  Growing up, I always ate it with jelly.  Today, spun honey or even just plain PB is fine with me. :)

That looks like a good sandwich.  Ham and avocado?

Hi Sussie, I just had an Amish buffet, with all the trimmings.  I had my sandwich the other day.

Yummy! I love a good sandwich, I usually use lettuce instead of bread to wrap the sandwich. I am not that into the bread anymore...too many carbs and I love the crispiness of the lettuce.

 Good morning Sussie. Just think of it! If the Earl of Sandwich had not invented the sandwich, we would not have burgers, gyros and a host of other meat filled breads.

Sussie,  That is an interesting bit of “history” about the sandwich.  That about explains it … meat between bread yet we have come a long with sandwich making over the years – far more than meat between bread. Oh yeah, don’t forget the chips!

Sonja.... I really don't care much for P&J sandwiches. We ate those A LOT growing up and they really don't do much for me without a big glass of cold milk. I am now allergic to milk.

Michelle Cadogan.... usually what we learn here on AR is much more worthy than this post.

Alan.... I don't know how you missed it but I know Round Rock and Austin both have great sandwich places to eat.... I had lunch with Kacey she said she emailed you.

Make that two Judi!

Evelyn.... You can't messup ham and avocado! Put purple onion on mine.

Pete it is 6:36 and I am ready for any type of sandwich!

Larry that sandwich image doesn't look to bad to.

Anne Marie....  I love lettuce wraps to

Rebecca...  I love a good club sandwich too.

Ron & Alex.... Maybe one day we can eat one together.

That's right Michael.... No gyros or wraps etc...

Morris... Hamburgers.... sandwiches came  from there too

Kathleen.... think where chips has lead us; to all kinds of other kinds of sides.
