Sandwich Week Continues: What's Your Favorite?

Welcome back to "Sandwich Week!" Enter exciting CONTEST below!

When I was a kid, I did not like peanut butter. I did like peanut butter commercials, though, and even produced one at school which a classmate and I read over the intercom for the whole school. It went something like: "Hi, try Pan Peter Butter Peanut..." I finally convinced myself as a teen (the power of advertising) that I SHOULD like peanut butter, that it was un-American not to. And it worked! I started eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! Now my kids have peanut sensitivities and get a rash around their mouths and/or gastrointestinal problems from peanut butter, but they still beg me for it even though I buy them almond butter, which really, is much better (really, it has to be -- it's 4X the price)!

For a while, it was the BLT, because it's so sublime--the opposite of a stuffed-full New York deli sandwich.

In high school I made lunches for myself and my younger brother. I have no idea what I put inside the bag, but I liked to decorate the outside of the brown bag, and Robbie lived in fear of what I would do to his lunch that he had to carry to school where people could see it.

This could go on and on, but just to mix it up:
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SANDWICH? WHAT SANDWICH TRANSCENDS ALL OTHER SANDWICHES FOR YOU? POST THEM HERE AND I PROMISE TO TRY THEM IN MY TEST KITCHEN, JUST 15 FLOOR TILES AWAY FROM THIS BLOG--AND POST THE RESULTS!

Rules:
1. Must be a sandwich, not any other favorite food.
2. Entrants must be 5 years of age or older.
3. You may enter as many times as you like.
4. Deadline is October 1, 2008. *DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 3RD!!!
5. Must be a sandwich you've actually eaten. So if it's fried worms on toast that's your favorite, I want evidence!

There, my first blog contest, official rules and all. Come one, come all! Tell your friends. Something to debate about between presidential debates (because they're not likely to cover this topic).

1. Hot pastrami on rye with mustard (though I haven't had it in years and will not eat it due to it's unhealthiness)

2. Peanut butter and jelly (has to be organic)

3. Tuna with Hellman's mayo like my mom used to make it (but I never appreciated it until I got older)

4. Egg salad (lite on the mayo--otherwise it's gross and misses the point)

5. Hummus-sprout-type-thing with homemade seedy bread that I had in Mexico and at a restaurant in the village called S'nice

What do I win?

Hi Lisa,
No contest. The best sandwich is on white bread with a little mayo. Hellmans of course. The sandwich consists of a few slices of fresh tomato(right off the vine) and some lettuce. The secret is the warm tomato right off the vine.

Dad says his favorite is tuna salad on a sub roll with a little lettuce. Nothing fancy. Just good old fashioned food.
