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
  • Turkey
  • Swiss cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumbers
  • Black olives
  • Ranch
  • 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.

Hi there! My name is Katie Beedy and I am a communication studies and multimedia journalism double major, class of 2018. I am also considering a minor in women’s and gender studies. I have lived here in lovely Moorhead, Minnesota for my entire life. After years of telling myself that I needed to break free and go to school far away, I finally gave in to the voice in my head telling me that Concordia was where I needed to be (and my goodness, am I glad I did). I don’t think any other school could better suit my combined passions for music, theatre, people, literature, food, social justice, adventures, and corn-related puns.

I love words and I love Concordia. I hope to use these loves to share my Cobber experience with you all.
