HIS BELLY BURST

Lately I have been obsessed with sandwiches for lunch. So weird… I’m like that with food. Emphasis on repetition and patterns. Beans for a week, sandwiches for a week, chocolate cake after every meal for 4 days, glasses of orange juice compulsively for 20 minutes and then avoid it studiously for 2 years. Etc.

Anyway I think right now my favorite sandwich is deeply toasted whole wheat bread with sharp cheddar, avocado, tons of salt and pepper, sprouts and cucumber, thinly sliced on the mandoline. Essential crunch. The perfect sandwich is a delicate balance of oppositionals: Sweet/salty, crunchy/creamy, burnt/tender, fresh/rich. And so on and so forth. So most variations on avocado/cheese/greens/mustard formula is pretty much amazing but I distilled it into perfection this morning when I had an open faced sandwich with only two ingredients: smoked turkey and avocado. Not technically a sandwich, perhaps, but tasty alternating bites.

Yesterday, even little Joni couldn’t resist the humble sandwich…
