Did you know that the sandwich is named after John Montagu (1718-92), the 4th Earl of Sandwich, who started a craze for eating beef between two slices of toast. Sandwich is a town in Kent, south east England. More than 1 billion sandwiches are eaten daily, worldwide. I had this one for lunch today. It tasted great, was very filling and so I decided to take a picture and post it. How often do you eat a sandwich?

      1. A neighbor just dropped off a bag of fresh peaches from her tree so I think I am going to try this sandwich with the peaches instead of the apricot since I’ve got them!

        1. Omg Lyn I love the sound of your neighbourhood. Everybody seems to be growing something. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies. I have to buy everything here (LOL). Enjoy the sandwich! Best wishes!

  1. What a glorious looking sandwich!
    I love it when a food has a story behind it. I learned about the sotry of sandwich when I was 12, I think, in an English class.

  2. Well, if I hadn’t just finished lunch, and checked my email before, I could have had this for my lunch too! It looks very yummy! And you know I have left over chicken from my soup the other day! I have one more meal of that soup left – it is so good! I could eat sandwiches every single day! Sometimes I don’t have a lot of imagination when it comes to putting the fillings together so this is a new and exciting one I can add to my repertoire of recipes in my iPad! Thanks Liz. Still raining here but very humid and muggy. Not normal for us! I’m feeling like I’m in Ontario. LOL

    1. Hi Sandy,
      The sandwich was great and it’s so versatile too You can play around with ingredients even throw in some cheese I love sandwiches from time time especially when school is on because i have to pack lunch every single day. It’s late and I’m trying to clear messages. Have a great Sunday!
