A Very Important Blog Entry about Sandwiches

September 15, 2004

I hate the smell of the bus terminal. The air reeks of cheap cigarettes and exhaust fumes. What distinquishes the smell of a cheap cigarettes from a more expensive brand I wonder? I cannot quite put my finger on the specifics of that difference, but I can tell, oh I can tell. Greensburg's finest gathered in one choice location and here I am smack dab in the middle of them trying to eat my lunch.

A little old lady - why are they always so little, I wonder? Don't tall women grow old? - has a brown paper bag of groceries sitting at her feet. A bright yellow bunch of bananas tops the bag and I want briefly to feel their sweetness on my tongue. Instead I sit on a bench next to an eldery gentleman smoking the afore-mentioned cheap cigarette and pull out my lunch, a strange sandwich invented by my friend Dominic.

It consists of two pieces of bread smeared thick with chunky peanut butter, thin slices of mild cheddar cheese in between. I laughed at him when he told me about it but then one day in the quiet secret of my kitchen, I tried it. It was thus transformed into my third favorite sandwich. A week later, I finally admitted my "dirty secret" to him.


(If you care:
Moira's Favorite Sandwich Stuffin's

  1. tomato, avocado, & cream cheese

  2. turkey breast, swiss cheese, and wholegrain mustard

  3. peanut butter & cheese on pumpernickel

  4. no-sugar added cherry preserves & peanut butter

  5. peanut butter, honey, and sliced banana

Oh my. Did I really just make a Top Five of my favorite sandwiches? Yes, I believe I did! Woah... this blogging stuff does strange things to my already jumbled mind.

So. What's -your- favorite sandwich??

Alright I'm already hungry thinking about this...
In EXACT order...

5. Crunchy peanut butter & strawberry perserve sandwich. Classic

4. Momma's Falfel Burger. My girlfriend's mom can throw down on a few things and this is one of them. She makes the biggest falfel she can muster (not crunchy, but a little soft) take some feta cheese, lettuce, pesto dressing, and a tomato and you'll be asking for one of her daughter's hand in marriage.

3. "Chili Burger" at Veggie Land. Has a thick assed grain patty that they make daily with imitation bacon and cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a wheat bun.

2. "Vegie Hogaie" at The New Yorker. Consists of Spinach, broccoli, red & green peppers, oinions,lettuce, tomatoes, all held together with melted cheese. DAMN FINE SANDWICH!

1. "Tofu Hogaie" at Mellow Mushroom. It's got tofu grilled with red & green peppers, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, and all held together by melted american cheese on a tosted roll. It just beats out #2 because it isn't as messy.
