In Crust We Trust! – A Guest Blog By the Philz

I pledge allegiance to the Bread, and to the Sandwich for which it stands, one meal, between two slices, divisible into halves, with sauces and layers for all.

Modify this Modmarket


This was my first trip to ModMarket over at Denver West.  At first thought, I was heading into a MUZAK store, since their logos are almost identical.  However, when I walked in the front door, I saw immediately that this was a different place. It was hip, chic, and smelled pretty good. They had about 10000000 menus posted on the front door, big tv screens, and had handouts.  There was a decent line, so I got to take my time thinking about what I wanted.

Is Jimmy John’s Serious…..ly Insane? i think so


So by now you may know, that I am not a huge fan of Jimmy John’s. I think their whole “Freaky Fast” thing is ridiculous, their business model is skewed, their advertising bugs the crap out of me an anyone who has to listen to any of their ads, their sandwiches all taste the same, and supposedly the highlight of the place is their mayo. For a guy who doesn’t eat mayo, I don’t think I can classify that as a highlight.

Isidorable

This is a sandwich named after my newborn son. His name is Henry Isidor Dobish, and we thought that it was only proper that I make a sandwich for him.  I went down to <a href=www.ddelisubs.com>D’Deli</a> with my friend and fellow sandwich lover Phil, and while we were in line, I was thinking about things that should go on a sandwich that would be representative of what my awesome newborn was.

Well, lets see… he was only about 1 month old at the time, and he didn’t really do very much beside eat, sleep, poop, pee, and eat some more.  That and be really really cute and adorable.  My sister-inlaw coined the term Henry Isidorable, which I thought was perfect.  As I was going into my sandwich making decisions, I decided that I should utilize both classic symbolism, as well as visual representations of how awesome my child is.

So here goes,

The base of the sandwich is strong and hearty. A nice wheat bread, thick yet squishy, sort of like my baby. He came out at 9 lbs.  Next came a layer of spicy brown mustard because that is what baby poop looks like.  I also threw down some olives, because i like olives, and the olive branch is a symbol of peace.  So far he has brought joy and peace into my life, and I am sure he will continue to do so.

Then I did a layer of cheese, and I went with a classic cheddar. I should have gone with 2 types of cheese, or at least double the cheese, because the only thing he eats right now is boobs. Boobs=milk=cheese. Pretty easy.

Next was a layer of Baby Spinach (because he’s a baby and Emily loves spinach), some carrots (because he was jaundiced), and some sprouts (because he is growing like one!). I topped it off with a little bit of oil (because sometimes we have to put some baby oil on him to keep his skin all soft and cuddly).

Then I ate it, which I did not do to my baby.  The sandwich was good. it was a little heavy  on the spinach, and I would have liked to have a little bit more cheese, but the flavors were great.  It was nice and light, with a balance between the mustard and the cheddar.  Every bite was enjoyable, just as every minute I get to spend with my child is enjoyable.  I think with very little refinement, this sandwich could be a good addition to one of my standards…. One day Henry, you will get to make your own sandwiches.  Until then though, you have to eat the ones we make for you… and actually, you don’t even get to eat those.
