Today was a nice day for the good ole sandwich. Had my Wednesday special soup-salad-sandwich at the Crescent City Pie and Sausage Company today. The soup was a seafood gumbo with shrimp and oyster, the salad was the usual greens lightly dressed with vinegarette, and the sandwich was a grilled cheddar and Parmesan. On a wet and grey afternoon, that hit the spot.
For dinner we stopped at Cochon Butcher for a quick bite after work. I've been craving a muffeletta for the last few weeks so I had the version here. It came on the cutest muffeletta roll! Like about half the size of the one at Central Grocery. It was still a substantial sandwich though. Cochon Butcher cures its own meats and they are gooood. Tom had the cubano which was tasty but lacking in pickles. So, less a cubano and more a really awesome roast pork pressed sandwich. Their sandwiches come with housemade potato chips which are really good too. Oh, also delicious- the mac & cheese with pancetta small plate.
Not technically a sandwich, but we both had carnitas super burritos from Felipe's the night before. I think this speaks to us being too tired to: a) cook; b) shop; c) think; d) go out to a real restaurant.
