National sandwich day

     Today is a celebration of one of America's favorite foods: the sandwich! It is no coincidence that November 3 is also the birthday of John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich. This 18th century English noble wanted to eat his meal with one hand during a 24-hour gambling event, so he instructed his servants to serve him his lunchmeat between two slices of bread. To commemorate the birth of the world's first sandwich-maker, November 3 is now National Sandwich Day.

    What's the most popular sandwich in America? Why, the hamburger, of course! Chicken sandwiches are a close second.  If you haven't seen the many commercials from Subway here is what they are doing.  Subway is giving a free foot long sub for everyone you buy today and encouraging you to give away the free one.  The commercials have the person giving the sub away to a stranger.

     For me the Bon Fresco Sandwich Bakery on Oakland Mills Road has the best sandwiches in Columbia.  Here is a link to their Facebook page.   Today makes me miss the old Roy's Place II that used to be on Snowden River Parkway where the 3 Guys is today.
