Bringing Nawlins to a kitchen near ME.

Huge crazy thank you to Jpapa for carrying this heavy jar across the United States so that we could recreate the world's most pimp sandwich.


MUFFALETTA!!!!

He made me promise to share with Crazz....

They were painfully delicious.


ETA: You don't melt the cheese because that's how Central Grocery makes them, and their sandwiches are LAW. As a lawful-good I do not deviate from the recipe EVER. It's perfection, so it's win-win.

That's why I asked! I thought it was probably something like that.

I was wondering why you were eating dinner at 10pm; stupid time zones!

For po'boys, there's this place South of NOLA, along the river near the little pond that's supposed to have a locomotive in it, ever since the flood of 1927, a few miles North of the where the road stops. Best po'boy ever.

Not as good as CM's muffaletta, though....

I had a sandwich for dinner, too - almond butter on fresh, fresh French bread. Terrific!

That muffaletta sandwich looks brilliant, Jrazz. Is that provolone?

Yessir!

I typically don't care for provolone, but it's tres necessary here, and makes the sandwich taste magical!

We have a sandwich shop here, called Picasso's. I don't know if they are chain or not, but I don't know how they stayed out of my life for as long as they did.

Last night I had a "Mona Lisa". Turkey, tomato, baby spinach, artichoke hearts, havarti, and pesto mayo pressed and grilled.

It was the best sandwich I have ever had.

Salami, ham, and mortadella.

Truthfully, I did not have the resources to get the PREMIUM meats required, but we passed muster with what I could find.

I am a fan of all things sandwich. I've never tried a Muffaletta. Now I must!

I had a friend who couldn't eat sandwiches. None. Hated them all. Anything between two slices of bread made her gag. She wouldn't even walk into Subway with us

Gosh this thread would have sooooo much more meaning if said "pimp" sandwich was delivered to those of us who have to work through the Holiday. It's not like someone made sure to get to Central Gocery at the risk of being late to Jazzfest, stood in line for 47 minutes whilst a couple from Pig's Knuckle Arkansas tried to order roast beef sandwiches, put up with an out of control child who said he wanted ice cream, waited patiently for his own sandwich, carried the olive mix the 17 blocks back to Mama's house, stashed the jar next to the unliscenced firearm in the closet risking jail time and public shame, denied himself an extra three Lucky Dogs since he spent so much money on the jar, didn't bring back any extra beignet mix since the package took up so much room in the checked bag, managed to conceal the package so it wouldn't be confiscated by hungry TSA agents and baggage handlers, made sure to transfer it to his pickemup for transportation to the beach house, resisted the temptation to open the jar and eat just a little bit before BabyRazz made her appearance at the beach AND didn't even ask to share a little bit of the olive mix goodness. No, I guess sandwich delivery would be too big an imposition.

Meta, only eat a Muffaleta from Central Grocery! I think "had a friend" is the important part of your statement.

We'll bring the mix to Tahoe.

(Damn, it is just take take take over here!! )

To his credit, I shared your rant with Crazz and he's ready to drive you out a sandwich. Much nicer than me.

There better not be any mix left by the time we get to Tahoe!

If Crazz is thinking about driving all the way to the valley, perhaps I poured on the guilt trip a little too hard.
