I love food math. :)
When I was in London for a month a few years ago to visit my good ol' friend, I remember seeing sandwiches all over the city.
In specialty sandwich gourmet stores, there were carefully arranged stacks of beautifully wrapped high grade sandwiches which were going for a few pounds for a pair.
In grocery chains, there were cost-saver sandwiches at 99pence. I remember squealing at that price, because that was honestly the cheapest item I saw in London, heh.
One of my most vivid memory in that trip, was having the BEST sandwich I ever had in my life, yet. (Also, the most expensive.)
It was from Pret A Manger, and I still can taste the smoked bacon, crunchy cress and a whole lot of other ingredients which I can't name, but OH THE HEAVENLY SMELL AND CRUNCH OF IT ALL!
Sorry for the outburst in caps, I just got a bit carried away thinking about it.
(because I'm far far away from London now, and I don't see anywhere in the near future where can I get another All Day Breakfast. SIGH.)
Unless I make one myself I guess. But besides bread, tomato and ketchup, I really don't have any other of the other ingredients.
-extremely tempted to put in another sigh, but there's an overload of them in this entry already eh.
Oh, I suddenly remember that on departure day at the airport, everyone else was scurrying around to look for KrispyKremes, but not me. Instead, I was really really anxious to have my last Pret A Monger sandwich because who knows when I'll taste it again!
These miniature sandwiches, sandwiched between my fingers (HOHOHO pun!), measure 3cm along longest side (cut side) and are 0.7cm in height.
Now how can I let you go without a snapshot of this sandwich I've been gushing non-stop of.
It's the one in the middle. Shucks, my stomach is rumbling just looking at this photo.
An old snapshot at London's Pret A Manger.
I'm the one in the middle. (See, I'm fated to be reunited with my sandwich. Both in the middle, get it?)
Right, I really need to grab dinner now for my very-unsatisfied tummy!
