Ahh, Publix sub…how I miss you. Gone (for now) are the days when I would relish slowly each bite of your delicious, crunchy, tangy layers. I thought about you tonight when I was making dinner plans with my husband, who is driving back in town from a day-long, out-of-state business trip. We were looking for an easy dinner and I immediately thought of you. And then I realized that because I am pregnant I can’t have you. Not like I want you.
I want you cold, like I believe the best sandwiches are…on multigrain bread with spicy mustard, layer upon layer of turkey, cheese, tomatoes, green peppers, banana peppers, olives, onions, and pickles. I want you sprinkled with pepper and oregano.
I can’t wait to have you again next Spring. Goodbye until then.
