Due to having to work late this week, Tonight's Menu is having four days off. In it's place I'll be telling the stories behind Today's Lunch. My standard weekday lunch consists of a filled roll and a couple of pieces of seasonal fruit. Not very exciting but it means that I don't have to shell out on shop bought sarnis.
I like a good sandwich. The rolls I take to work however, are constructed with eating Al'desco in mind. Nothing that is likely to fall apart or leave my hands in a sticky mess. There is nothing worse than answering the phone with pickle and mayo all over your mits.
But I'm at home for lunch all this week, so today I'm celebrating with a proper two-handed sandwich*. I'm not going to go daft and try to recreate a towering Scooby snack, complete with an olive on a cocktail stick. I have the morning off, not all day, and my jaw isn't fitted with a 180o hinge.
My sandwich is fully loaded though. Dijon mustard, Wiltshire Ham, Strong Lincolnshire Cheese**, tomato, cucumber, rocket and mayo. All between two slices of home made wholegrain bread. This would be all over my keyboard in the office. At home I can take my time.
*a sandwich so mighty you need to eat it with two hands or risk losing its contents over your lap.
**grated, it just tastes better.
