My Favorite Sandwich, A Love Story / The Perfect Veggie Sandwich
t’s funny the things that make you think of love, isn’t it? And not very surprising for us, that a lot of food makes my heart think of love and of Alex. Just like pizza has a love story for him and I, so does this sandwich. Nothing about this sandwich has changed over the past six (?) years. It doesn’t need to change. I know we’re typically things on toast people over here, but this—- this really is our favorite, easy bread and veggie recipe—- and filling enough for even the hungriest of carnivores (ahem, alex).
And each day (not everyday, but often enough for me to be spoiled by it) he would make this sandwich for me while I was at work and walk it over to me. We’d sit together in breezy walkway filled with wind chimes, tapestries, and hanging plants outside a sweaty and incense filled hippie shop (I know, I worked there/managed it— and it’s still funny and amazing to me now) and eat our sandwiches together…. with chips. Always chips. We all love sandwich day. And I love eating this sandwich with him and our small family.
When I asked Alex if this sandwich makes him think of love, he said yes. I asked, why. And he said becausewe’ve been making it together for so long. I’ve only ever ate this sandwich with you. And will always eat it with you. It’s true. And now, we eat it with Marlowe (no beets for marlowe). And more awesome? With vegetables grown in our own garden. That’s love. Veggie sandwich love.
