Friends – this is an awesome day – National Sandwich Day! Sandwiches are so varied in how you can make them – what bread, what meats, hot or cold, grilled, pressed, open or closed, condiments, toppings – sigh – let me slow down. The options are out there my friends. Do you know how the day got started?
English history says that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich. He was a heavy gambler and would spend hours at the tables in London’s gambling halls. In 1762, he created the sandwich by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This allowed him to stay at the tables longer to gamble. Thus, the sandwich was made.
And do you know what Elvis Presley liked on his sandwiches? Peanut butter, banana and bacon (sorry Bacon) and then it was grilled. It does sound interesting in a round about way.
And do you have a Subway restaurant in your area? Today if you buy a sub and a 30 ounce drink, you get a free sub to share. Now that sounds like an awesome way to spend today.

Subway is a great place to get a bargoon. We used to frequent the Subway in Vancouver. We have one here but never go.

Mom/dad usually share a drink. If not those two would be up all night. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon
