First Sandwich!

Hey guys, first I want to say that I've been a fan of sandwiches for a long time, so to be asked to contribute to the Sandwich Blog is pretty exciting for me.   Now, normally I'm pretty good about eating many kinds of delicious sandwiches.   I used to live in Los Angeles, which in my opinion is pretty strong in the whole area of delicious sandwiches. However, due to a recent disagreement between myself and U.S. Customs, I'm going to be spending a fair amount of time in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. Unfortunately,  having many delicious sandwiches available isn't really one Saint John's strengths (but there is a lot of great poutine), so I don't know how well this is going to go.

With that warning out of the way, here's a sandwich I ate:

It's the Toasted Chicken Club from Tim Horton's: whole wheat bun, chicken breast, bacon, lettuce, tomato, some weird honey mustard dressing, pretty straightforward, except that it was really awful. The chicken and bacon tasted really microwavey, almost like they were microwaved and not toasted at all.  Also, everything about this sandwich seemed oddly small, like they shrunk down a normal sandwich by 25%. The bread was fine, I guess.

Well, there you go, a terrible sandwich I ate.  I'm really sorry, I'll try to do better.

Hooray! And welcome, Nechita. I look forward to reading about all the crazy, backward sandwiches that happen in Canada. Mustard on the OUTSIDE?!? (This is a rumor I'm starting about the way Canadians eat sandwiches.)

And no need to feel bad about this Tim Horton sandwich disappointment -- it's just part of the sandwich journey, you know? If there weren't lows, you wouldn't appreciate the highs. I read that on a fortune cookie or some shit.

this post serves to remind us that even in the utopian world of sandwiches things sometimes go a rye.
