This is not just a sandwich, people. Goodness no.
It is sooooo much more. Firstly, because I have a weird obsession with making each bite in a sandwich the same, aka doing it the right way. Secondly, remember my favorite nearly-no knead bread? Well this time I added rosemary and whole garlic cloves before kneading ’cause I’m crazy like that. Lastly, in case you aren’t convinced, I went ahead and made my own mayo. I found a practically fool proof recipe which has kind of made my life. I know I exaggerate a touch, but I am truly a mayo fiend. I am that creepy person who dips her french fries in mayo, slathers it on sandwiches, and requests extra at restaurants. Ew, I know, I’m the worst.

For a while it was like spring, then it was like living on frozen arctic tundra, which I guess is probably a year round thing in the arctic, then back to “real winter,” aaand back to tundra. I don’t know whether to wear a t-shirt or never leave my house again. Currently not planning on leaving. Luckily we have a pretty good stock of homebrew right now. Me might even survive til spring.
This is my new favorite thing. So far I’ve slopped it on: chicken, pasta, and bread. I might have eaten it with a spoon too. Maybe.
I think. I mean, I guess its not really over. Not ’til the last drop is drank. So, probably about now.
