My Own Never-Ending Sandwich
Posted on Wednesday, January 27th, 2016 by Katie Beedy
My fellow blogger Kelsey Rausch rhapsodized in a recent post about the most delicious sandwich she had ever made. Today, I shared a similarly spiritual experience.
I must preface this with a mildly embarrassing confession: until this winter, I had never visited the Fillings station in DS. I spent my first three semesters at Concordia intimidated by the Subway-style sandwich station, unsure of how to approach the counter or what do once I got there. In December, after months of watching my friends sit down to dinner with tasty looking sandwiches on their plates, I made my roommate Rachel guide me through the process. I selected my bread, meat, cheese, and veggies as per Rachel’s suggestions and breathed a sigh of relief when the woman responsible for assembling my sandwich handed me my plate. This first sandwich, while tasty, was nothing special. As I became better acquainted with Fillings, I also became more adventurous: testing out the specialty breads, adding new sauces, even taking a crack at the panini press!
All of my culinary exploits paid off tonight at dinner, when I finally made the perfect sandwich. Its ingredients were:
- Focaccia bread
- Swiss cheese
- Black olives
- A bit of chipotle dressing
Once the sandwich had been assembled, I popped it in the panini press to toast the bread and melt the cheese. I then grabbed a glass of raspberry iced tea and sat down to partake in one of the most memorable sandwich-eating experiences of my 20 years of life. I will definitely be replicating it in the near future.
