Eavesdropping on Jenny & Ashley August 14, 2012

Last Friday, as Ashley and I were doing show prep for Top 7, we were cracking each other up (as usual). “You know,” I said, “We could probably just record our conversations and put them on the Internet and they’d entertain people.”

“We should do that!” Ashley exclaimed, and thus Eavesdropping on Jenny & Ashley was born.

Every Monday through Thursday, we’re going to record a 30-minute conversation, and play it at 8pm Pacific on the same channel on Blog Talk Radio as Top 7. Come be a fly on the wall for our sometimes insightful, usually inane, always hilarious conversations.

Happy listening!

My Love Affair With Sandwiches

Gooey Deliciousness

So I have a thing for sandwiches. Especially grilled sandwiches with melty cheesey goodness. The Caprese with pesto and balsamic reduction from Austin Daily Press is enough to make me consider moving to Texas. It’s in the ‘pro’ column, at least, along with the lack of state income tax. On the ‘con’ side is that it’s so hot that, as Ashley succinctly put it once, you feel like your skin is going to melt off. Anyway.

Last summer in Minneapolis, I found myself at Hell’s Kitchen, and glancing at the menu in my hand, saw the words “award winning sandwich.” Done. And oh boy, that was an amazing sandwich. The ham and pear crisp is worth the kajillion calories you’ll have to burn to stay in your skinny jeans. Ok, maybe just half a sandwich. I really don’t like working out.

My go-to local sandwich is from Which Wich, a chain that specializes in multiple, seemingly limitless options. I get the buffalo chicken sandwich with blue cheese and caramelized onions. Toasted, because duh. I like sandwiches, what can I say? So I was flitting around facebook last week I saw an ad for a food truck festival at the San Diego Fairgrounds. FOOD TRUCKS! AND CRAFT BEER! So in. So I went, and that was where I had one of the most insanely delicious, and definitely the most insanely expensive sandwich I’ve ever had.

My mouth is totally watering in this picture.

The festival was at the San Diego Fairgrounds, which houses the Del Mar Racetrack, which is our version of the Kentucky Derby. Horse racing. Parking was $10. Then I had to pay to get in, even though I wasn’t there for the horses – another $6. I wandered for a bit narrowing down my choices, and finally settled on a lobster grilled cheese on sourdough with tomato and caramelized onion from Devilicious — $12 bucks.

Yes, I essentially paid $28 for a sandwich. Was it worth it? Maybe not everyday, but I did find out that Devilicious posts their scheduled whereabouts online, and occasionally they’re in my hood. Besides, after paying all that for a sammich, I felt practically frugal buying a $9 Mermaid’s Red from Coronado Brewing Company.

 

If you know any great sandwich shops in the San Diego area, let me know about them in the comments!
