They don’t love you until they figure out how to make you a perfect sandwich….👀
I didn’t say it, “they” did. You know, the all knowing people of good old New York City AND OPRAH!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m referring to a guy whose GF asked when he was going to marry her. His response was, after you’ve made me 365 sandwiches. He might have been joking, but she got right to it and made a sandwich a day.
So CLEARLY, there’s something to this sandwich.
I remember watching The Oprah show many years back and even SHE admitted to making Steadman a #LoveSandwich!! Imagine, Oprah with her staff and chefs.
Now I’m thinking this is just another way of showing love to your partner or family.
Since this topic aligns itself with my belief of doing everything to the best of your ability, I figured I’ll take a dig at this #LoveSandwich Topic.
I’m not much of a writer, I’m more of a Show You person, you know, sort of give you the basics of how to go about achieving this sandwich. In most cultures, Food is Love, people express their love for you by feeding you. So why not make this sandwich something beautiful and inviting for your loved ones.
First of all, THIS is not love! DO NOT DO THIS! DO NOT DO THIS! DO NOT DO THIS!
NO SHELF BREAD!!!!!!
NO MYSTERY MEAT!!!!!
NO INDIVIDUALLY PACKED CHEESE-Esque stuff! !!!!!
this, to me, says here, eat and get out of here..
I don’t care about you, oh! You said you’re hungry? On, great! Here! Now leave me alone. There’s no love in this! There’s no passion!
There’s no, “I hope you enjoy this so much that you come running back to me” or “I hope this makes you remember me even from deployment in the desert of Afghanistan!”
THATS what I’m talking about.
What will make your LOVE SANDWICH unique is you knowing your partners preferences. If your partner doesn’t eat pork, it wouldn’t be wise to make him a HAM sandwich now would it? So this is simply a guide that you must personalize for yours.
You should get to know your neighbourhood baker and make use of his artisan bread. Try different ones before you settle for the one that will become a staple to your Love Sandwich.
Do not limit yourself to Regular Mustard and Ketchup.. Hit your condiment section at your local grocery store or preferably at a gourmet grocery store because that’s where that good flavoured stuff can be found. Remember, you aren’t making this Love Sandwich everyday, its something you make once it a while or on special occasions, so don’t skimp. Condiments elevate the flavour profile of your sandwich and they are that surprise element that no one else can duplicate 🙂
Purchase REAL Protein, not that bologna/polony stuff that contains so much chemicals and mystery meats! LEAVE THAT out of the love sandwich.. Remember, this is a treat.. don’t bring your bad habits to THE LOVE SANDWICH!
Viola! THE LOVE SANDWICH!!!
