I've decided to make Thursdays my "Question of the Week" day because I always have questions and am always interested in people's answers.
This Week's Question:What do you consider to be the perfect sandwich?
Last night, hubby came home from work and declared "I've discovered the greatest sandwich". I'm not a roast beef fan, but to him, roast beef with Boursin cheese spread on some special type of bread was heavenly.
To me, finding the perfect flavor combination to create the perfect sandwich is much harder than it sounds. Like the hamburger, a perfect sandwich doesn't always have to be stacked with 5 or more ingredients, but it has to make me want more because it is yummy not because I'm hungry.
As a kid, I loved peanut butter and Fluff (marshmallow spread) sandwiches. In this case, I don't think it was because of the flavor combination. It was because it was the sandwich my mom would make for us when we packed up the car and drove to a Rhode Island beach for the day. It was so fun. An entire day of riding the waves, sand castles and sun.
Although I loved a peanut butter/fluff sandwich, I know it was because I only had it when we spent the day at the beach not because I was eating a sandwich which attracted more sand than my sand pail.
As an adult, a good sandwich is truly appreciated because of the flavors, not any memories associated with it.
I do love a good lobster salad sandwich, but also enjoy a liverwurst sandwich from time-to-time.
So, as I continue my search for the perfect sandwich, do you have any suggestions I should try?
