Sunny Sammy

The weathers actually been into the 90's the past few days here in San Francisco and Its always hard to adjust when the weather is usually in the 60's everyday then all of a sudden it jumps into the 90's. But thankfully I dont live in Los Angeles right now where theyre recording over 110. Whenever these hot days come bye, nothing sounds better than grabbing a sandwich.
The word sandwich was born in London during the very late hours one night in 1762 when John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, was too busy gambling to stop for a meal even though he was hungry for some food. The legend goes that he ordered a waiter to bring him roast beef between two slices of bread. The Earl was able to continue his gambling while eating his snack. He apparently had the meat put on slices of bread so he wouldn’t get his fingers greasy while he was playing cards. Seeing this, others at the nearby tables requested "the same as Sandwich".
