DAY 28: TOMATO MOZZARELLA SANDWICH
July 29, 2014
THE HUNGER JAMES OFFICIAL RATING:
There is a supermarket across the street from my office that has one of the best lunch buffets I’ve been to since Atlantic City (read all about Sultans Feast here). I went there today to see if they had some grilled vegetables, pasta or mozzarella sticks.
They didn’t. Everything was meat. All of it. Apparently Morton Williams is not following
my 31 Day Challenge.
Leaving me no choice, I went up to the deli counter to see what vegetarian sandwiches
they had to offer. Just one: a tomato mozzarella caprese sandwich. I asked the gentleman
behind the counter if he could throw the sandwich in the toaster oven for a few minutes
so the tomatoes would be warm and the cheese be deliciously gooey and melted.
He handed me my sandwich back and as soon as the container hit my hands, I knew he
didn’t leave it in long enough, but alas I only get 30 minutes for lunch so there was no point in wasting time and arguing.
When I got back to my desk, I picked up my sandwich and saw that none of the cheese even melted. Having my entire day ruined, I ate my lunch in the back corner so no one could see my tears.
The sandwich wasn’t awful, but it would have been so much better warmed up
