Do you have a food you couldn't live without? This is mine.
So the story goes.....There is a weekend tradition to go to our favorite Italian deli about 10 minutes from our house. We don't make it every weekend, though we'd like to. We get a turkey and domestic hot genoa sandwich with provolone ( or sometimes roast beef), easy mayo and mustard, light italian dressing, extra lettuce (it also has deli pickles and pepperoncini's) . We share the sandwich $6.49 and get a bag of chips, diet coke, and 2 of the most delicious chocolate dipped cookies you will ever eat. There are no tables, so everything is buy and go. The smell alone would kill us to have to drive all the way 10 minutes back home. So we stop at a little park around the corner from the deli and eat lunch in the truck. We watch kids play, drug deals go down, guys playing soccer, people on blankets soaking up the sun, dog walkers and a group of men who gather around a table to play cards. What more could you want? My favorite meal and entertainment built into one.
The Diet Coke evens out all the bad calories. :)
