This sandwich recipe goes back many years to when my big guy was just a little guy. After he was born in 2005, I went back to my full-time job working for a new home builder. The work was stressful and demanding, and the hours where long. Not a good fit for this new mom.
After just a few months back at work full-time, I gave my notice and left to start my own business as a mobile notary. The notary business was slow at first, so I started making and delivering sandwiches, salads, soups, and baked goods, fresh from my kitchen, to local businesses and teachers. Small scale bagged lunch catering. It was a lot of fun, and I loved developing recipes and packaging up my goodies.
After about a year, the notary business, which was much more lucrative, started keeping me very busy. At this point, my little guy had also become mobile, so something had to give. I left my short lived life as a caterer behind.
