The girth was the problem

The girth was the problem, originally uploaded by nealdstewart.

Yesterday I went on Turkey Sandwich mission. A quickie from Jimmy John’s or Quizno’s just wasn’t going to cut it. I wanted to explore the Turkey Sandwiches of Seattle.

I ended up at Pike Place Market – specifically a place called Beecher’s. They make their own cheese and offer an array of grilled sandwiches. Paninis if you want to be all fancy and shit.

I ordered their Turkey offering which came topped with their famous “flagship” cheese. The sandwich was fine. I’m a sucker for a good grilled cheese, especially one with Turkey on it.

But here’s the problem: the sandwich lacked girth. I know it gets all smashed down when it’s put in that griddle, sandwich maker thing. But it was way too thin. Or maybe it was too small. And if I cant’ get more girth with my Turkey Sandwich then maybe I need a bowl of soup with it or something – because just the plain ol’ grilled sandwich wasn’t working for me.

  1. This is exactly what Mrs. TSR was telling her therapist about you last week-“The girth was the problem”

  2. It does look like it could use a bit more turkey. Probably double the turkey, and then double to cheese so you don’t lose the flavor and gooey texture of the cheese, and you’d have yourself a fine sandwich!Though I must say… I am a big believer that a big meat filled piroshki is a must have if you visit Pike Place. I like to get one real early when I am there before I get on to my shopping an whatnot.
