The Ultimate New England Sandwich Competition

Well, my pal Grotke and I have made it into the finals of the Ultimate New England Sandwich Competition. We did it for a lark but things have turned serious now.

The judging happens Friday evening. Grand Prize is a trip to Sydney, Australia for an International Sandwich Competition. One of us will have to go if we win, which we weren't counting on doing. But there's a possibility, as there are only 21 finalists that we know of. Which is a scary deal.

My brother and Strider are rooting for us. I have schpilkes.

I'm rooting for you too! Decided on what you'll put in it yet? I was thinking prawns (Do you call them prawns over there? Hmmm maybe that's what you call shrimp?) You'll no doubt have way better ideas, it was just that at that very moment the thought of a prawn sandwich was so appealing :)

I'm away to the fridge to see if I have any...

You're blog post has made me hungry - that's a first!

GOOD LUCK!

Thanks Rory! The recipe is set- we had to use as many local products as possible, and we're landlocked, so prawns were out. I'll publish the recipe here on Saturday, and it'll also be on iBrattleboro, for which it's named- "The iBrattleburger". Soon as I know, I'll post the results.

It's always a good time for a sammich! :D

Oh God Rory- just read your blog, and about your Mom. I'm so sorry this is happening. Love, peace and comfort to you...many hugs, Laura

Thank you Laura - I can't sleep which is why I'm still around. I took a couple of sleeping pills and they have hit me hard so I'm sitting here with eyes drooping. I guess in a childlike way I'm thinking if I don't go to sleep it won't happen. But I best go lie down...whether it's tonight or tomorrow, she put up one helluva fight. I'm really proud of her.

Goodnight Laura - God Bless

Sleep well. I was far away when my Mom died; it's hard to take. Rest, eat, take comfort in what you can. I'm thinking of you and your Mom.
