eat all the smith & deli sandwiches – #29 – back to the beginning – home alone
Here it is, day 29 and I’ve eaten all the sandwiches that I wanted to try. There was one day left to post a sandwich before the wrap up tomorrow, so I decided to go back to where it all began – the Home Alone.
I’ve never actually eaten the real Home Alone sandwich, because on the frenzy of opening day back in June, they’d run out of rolls and seitan turkey. I had my original one on turkish bread with chicken salad. I have that one scored as 11/10 – putting it at the top of my list of sandwiches.
So in the interests of science I ate the REAL Home Alone. The real sandwich ingredients are seitan turkey, stuffing, roasted brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce, mashed potato and gravy on a roll.
I am happy to report that it almost lives up to the first one I ate. I probably prefer the first one by a half a point, but that’s being picky. It is possible that I just remember it more fondly because it was my first love.
In any case, there is a nice symmetry that my first and last sandwiches are both the same and the Home Alone, in either guise, still remains my favourite. I am going to score it the same.
As someone commented, it is like Christmas Dinner in a sandwich.
