sandwich notes

Remember: the fourth Sandwich Party is coming up just a week from now! Get your appetites and your cameras ready! If you’re looking for inspiration, check out:
- The Rubik’s Cubewich, a cube of toasted bread, meats, and cheeses, liberally slathered with awesome.
- Esquire‘s feature on the best sandwiches in the U.S.. Weirdly enough, it includes the McRib and the Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, which is enough to make me look at the list with hearty suspicion.
- A month of sandwiches!
- If you’re imagining a sandwich made with Thanksgiving leftovers, Marcus LeShock’s round-up of Chicago’s best Thanksgiving sandwiches should give you some food for thought.

If you need a little practice, you can play the Lilo and Stitch Sandwich Stacker game without letting it get smashed!

Pro-tip: Frozen sandwiches do not seem like a good idea. Some highlights from these reviews:
“…a grilled microwaved chicken sweet and slimy onion sandwich.”

“The cheese doesn’t so much make you think ‘cheese’ as make you feel like the ghost of cheese is somehow wrapped across the top of the sandwich.”

“However, if you’re after a sandwich with a watery cheese filling with beef strips that seem like they’re not all wrapped up in a scarily dry, flaky crust, this sandwich is for you.”

To sum up: Sandwiches, good. Frozen sandwiches, bad. Leftovers as sandwich stuffing, good. Sandwich party? GOOD!

  1. I haven’t been to a Chick-fil-A since my teens, when sister N. worked at one, but I tend to be wary of
    A) fast-food chains
    B) businesses that incorporate religious principles into mission statements and worker guidelines
    so Chick-fil-A falls squarely into my “really?” file. Also, N. always came home from work sighing quietly and smelling oddly of sad pickles.
