National Sandwich Day

Today, November 3rd is national sandwich day. I grew up with a grandmother who kept a special Tupperware container full of yummy things to make a sandwich out of. My grandkids would be happy not to eat anything but peanut butter sandwiches. I have a son who makes a sandwich out of everything that he eats. How do you feel about sandwiches?

A few of my favorites include:

I love the Italian sandwiches you will often find at delis and this recipe measures up nicely

Easy Italian Sub Sandwich

16 slices hard salami
Italian dressing
4 slices ham
24 slices sandwich size pepperoni
4-8 slices provolone cheese
4 slices turkey (optional)
4 hoagie rolls

Toast the opened sub rolls under the broiler until they are lightly browned. Top each roll (covering both sides) with 1 slice of ham, 1 slice turkey (optional), 4 slices of hard salami, 6 slices of pepperoni and 1-2 slices provolone cheese. Place them back under the broiler and heat until the cheese is brown and bubbly. Remove from the oven and top with Italian Dressing or mayo. Serve with chips and carrot sticks.

Pinwheel sandwiches are my teens choice of favorite sandwich. Check out this recipe perfect for a party

3.5 ounce bag sun-dried tomatoes
extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper
12 ounces cream cheese
3-4 scallions (green onions)
12-14  tortillas (10")
2 pounds lunch meat
romaine lettuce

Tomato Spread (can be done ahead)
Pulse the sun dried tomatoes in a blender with a good drizzle of olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pulse until no large chunks of the tomato remains. It won't be smooth, but should be even in appearance with very crumbly, small tomato pieces.

Cream Cheese Spread (can be made ahead)
Be sure to let the cream cheese soften just a little so that it will be easier to mix. Dice scallions and mix in well with the cream cheese. (Pretty easy, huh?)

Pinwheel Sandwiches 
To build sandwich, cover a tortilla with a thin later of cream cheese mixture. Then place slices of lunch meat (turkey is always a favorite) in a thin layer, leaving about 1" of cream cheese exposed at the far edge. (This cream cheese kind of glues the tortilla closed when rolled.) Place leaf lettuce across the center of the tortilla (from left to right, or right to left), and spread some of the tomato mixture along the lettuce. You are now ready to roll! Starting at the edge closest to you, roll away from yourself. Press firmly as you roll the far edge, making sure that the cream cheese seals the edge. Before you slice the actual sandwiches you'll have to cut away either end to prevent from getting two misshapen and half-empty sandwiches. I always put these scraps in a bowl to munch on: waste not, want not! Now cut the log into approximately 1" slices. You should get 6-7 pinwheels out of each tortilla.
