National Bologna Day
Bologna. My brothers love the stuff (or at least they used to) but I’ve never been a fan. It’s basically a hotdog with a larger surface area, right? I wasn’t quite sure how to celebrate National Bologna Day other than throwing a single slice of the pink processed meat on some white bread along with mayo and mustard and calling it a day. And then I found out that there is a somewhat fancier version of bologna known as Mortadella. I conducted a google search for mortadella sandwiches in the San Diego area and found Grab & Go.
They specialize in Italian subs and I’ve come to realize that the best way to mask the taste of bologna is by smothering it in salty Italian flavors like capocolla and genoa salami and olive salad and pepperoncinis. That totally did the trick! I detected no bologna flavor whatsoever while that olive salad lit up my tongue like a Christmas tree.
I can, without a doubt, say that I will never eat this sandwich again. I liked it so little that I may go as far as claiming that I will never eat at this sub shop again. It doesn’t help that I love Which Wich with an undying love that burns stronger than the flames of Hades. I don’t actually know what that means, so hopefully it’s not offensive or inappropriate in nature. But seriously, have you had their turkey reuben? Get one and get back to me. I hope you’ve just been introduced to your new favorite sandwich too!
Tomorrow is National Greasy Food Day! Doesn’t that sound fun? I’m trying to think of the greasiest food I can and all I’m coming up with is nachos. Not a bad option! How will you be splurging?
