Family lore has it that our stepfather once made a Rice a Roni sandwich.
The story goes like this: As Pete was getting ready for his night shift job, he was making lunch and the pickings were slim. He gathered what was available and voila! the Rice a Roni sandwich was born. While I do not remember this particular meal, Pete *was* like MacGuyver in the kitchen creating meals from the most unlikely of ingredients so there is a possibility that there is some meat tooth’s story.
Raya and I have been working up tasty combinations to share for National Sandwich month and this story has been rattling around in my brain. We agree that, by definition, a sandwich is an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other filling between them, eaten as a light meal but what happens when a sandwich is made with an item of food that is between something OTHER than bread?
Today we made tuna salad and instead of bread we made a wrap using Rosemary and Olive Oil “Mission Wraps” and slices of cucumbers from the garden. They were delicious and seemed like sandwiches to us!
