Live Action Quick Tips

Did you know….

In 1840, the sandwich was introduced to America by Elizabeth Leslie (1787-1858). In her “Directions for Cookery”, she offers a recipe for ham sandwiches that she deemed them worthy to be a main dish. In the 1900’s, with the industrial revolution underway, bakeries began to sell pre-sliced bread. The American public jumped at the ease of making a sandwich. The sandwich as institution was born. Human beings, being adventurous, have developed the sandwich into both a quick and easy meal, and an art form. How long would it take for us to reconfigure the possibilities: we toast the bread or serve it plain; we pile high the sandwich with the maximum ingredients, or keep it simple with one or two.(

Nothing better on warm sunny day than cold cuts delivered on a breaded souffle!

Something about cold cut sandwiches just makes me want to break dance!

Maybe because when I was a kid, my brothers and I would come home from school and my mom always made sure to have bread, mayonnaise, mustard, cold cut meats, sliced cheese and bacon as a means for us to have a snack before she got home from work.

We would create all kinds of different sandwiches. Sometimes a bologna sandwich, where I would put 2 slices of bologna in the microwave for 1 minute just to give it that crisp on the edges and bubbled up form.

Then I would put mayonnaise and mustard on the bread and dive right in! This is the 80’s generation classic! I can hear the Hip Hip Hooray’s for all of you reading this now!

Let’s keep going!!

My brother’s and I would also place a napkin on a plate and then place a couple strips of bacon on it and over it for 5 minutes and then make the bologna sandwich the same way and now we have a mini club sandwich. True live action eating!

We also would make sandwiches and add chips to it.. I even had friends who would peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Since we’re talking about cold cuts I’m not going to go into that.

“Trev, I thought we were talking about Chili’s? I love the sandwich talk but how was the sandwich at Chili’s?”

“What an inquisitive mind you have my curious..always wanting more….”

Back to the topic at hand. Chili’s Turkey Club Sandwich!

This sandwich is a monster of delectable goodness! And probably can feed up to 2 people. The bacon is juicy and flavorful, the sandwich is loaded with turkey cuts and moist with mayonnaise and with the combination of lettuce and avocado on Texas Toast this dish is a masterpiece of success!

Each bite was a moment of pleasure and took me to a place of utmost desire. True cold cut bliss at its finest!

I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend! I look forward to seeing on the next adventure! Keep hope alive!

Eating is an enjoyable way of life.Live it..Learn it..Love it!
