Make Me A Wich

Sandwichmaker, sandwichmaker, make me a wich!

Before we got elbow deep in sandwiches, we had a pow wow over coffee -

IMG_8594Blog

Eat local. Drink strong coffee.

Pickle wrapping!!

IMG_8590Blog

Prep for the day ahead

IMG_8595Blog IMG_8598Blog

Soon enough it was time to make sandwiches! We are serving the whole GH HQ office today plus some community members.

IMG_8606Blog

My first was a roast beef – condiments, meat, cheese

IMG_8610Blog

Intimidation

IMG_8612Blog

Veg!

IMG_8614Blog 

Slice

IMG_8616Blog

Gorrrrgeous!

IMG_8620Blog

We quartered up a bunch and are delivering them to local businesses

IMG_8622Blog

Then it was time to make our own lunches

A KERF-style sandwich includes tons of veggies and lots of flava on Sunflower Wheat bread

IMG_8623Blog

I made one with swiss cheese, avocado, mustard, tomato, pepper, cuc, lettuce, S+P

IMG_8627Blog IMG_8628Blog

Do you know what makes the GH sandwiches so amazing? THE BREAD.

IMG_8625Blog

IMG_8629Blog

I wrapped mine into two separate halves with two pickles. I ate one half early (11:30) and am saving the second half for the afternoon – along with a pear.

Hope you all got to eat a delicious sandwich soon!

Okay, now I’m REALLY disappointed you guys didn’t choose Asheville as your location for a GH! I want to try their bread!

I know what you mean…I was wishing for the Jacksonville, FL…..I have been wanting to try it myself – it always looks SO tasty!!

Those do look like delicious sandwiches- I love how THICK and full of good stuff they are! Though I must say, my favorite part of a sandwich is always the pickle :)

4 Stacy @ Every Little Thing January 18, 2011 at 2:54 pm

The bread does look amazing on those sammies. That’s fun that you’re actually making them for people! Kind of puts the pressure on, but in a good way.

Those sandwiches look so good! I love how thick the bread is. I totally need to try a sandwich on GH bread! Everything looks so fresh and tasty!

GH Honey Whole Wheat, for ever! It’s my fave, and I buy a loaf once a week. Hello, $20/month, but totally worth it. Yum, yum.

Your sandwich looks delicious. I’m craving crispy summer veggies right now.

I just found a Great Harvest like an hour from my house…. I might have to make a voyage this weekend to get me some bread!!!!!!

You can make me a sammie, anytime!

I love the wrapped pickles…cute!

And your tshirt. I WANT IT!!! Tooooo cute! Where did you score that one?

11 Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty January 18, 2011 at 3:03 pm

I feel like I should tell you about my favorite sandwich… It was from a great little grocery store where I used to live (and before I was dairy free)

Fabulous bread – hummus + gouda, (I think grainy mustard, it’s been awhile) LOADED with veggies + marinated artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes. It was THE BEST sandwich I’ve ever had, and any time I go there, that is the FIRST place I stop.

OH YUM! I wish we had great harvest here, it looks fantastic!

12 Trish @I_am_Succeeding January 18, 2011 at 3:05 pm

I’ll take 2 KERF’s to Maine please!! =)

Love all the behind the scenes of what goes on and into all this!

You’re a pro Kath!!! Now I’m thinking I need to switch professions and go into sandwich making!

I love avocado and lots of veggies on my sandwiches! And plenty of pickles. :-)

15 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) January 18, 2011 at 3:09 pm

Now I’m in a mood for a sandwich- minus the pickles!

you’re hair always falls so nicely! do you have thick hair? or is it just the way you cut it?

Reply

17 Kath January 18, 2011 at 6:37 pm

Thanks! It’s not super thick. I think it’s just super straight! I do curl it out with a brush (like today) sometimes.

Reply

18 Allison K. January 18, 2011 at 3:10 pm

I never remember or think about putting salt and pepper on sammies. I need to do that more often!

Wow, your sandwich looks amazing! I love GH :)

That looks like a fantastic sandwich – veggie sandwiches are my favorite.

Yum! Sandwich perfection. Glad you got some strong coffee this morning. :)

25 Mary Frances January 18, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Here an O N I O N , there an O N I O N, everywhere an O N I O N ! Wow, I am impressed…you actually touched it (well kinda). We’ll make an onion lover out of you yet. All this time hearing about you opening a Great Harvest Bakery, it never occurred to me you would have to have a daily relationship with onions. Vidalia are sweeter and less odor and the best–maybe that could be the one you use in your store? You sure are a trooper, and I have to admit…I did laugh–not at you, but with you :| :) LOL

Reply

26 Kath January 18, 2011 at 6:37 pm

We might not serve them on our sandwiches..

Reply

27 Susan Mc January 20, 2011 at 8:33 pm

naw … really?
I have to say that would make me a disappointed customer!

Ummmm, I just want to take a HUGE bite out of your KERF-wich. Thanks for the inspiration to use guac. as a spread and slice the peppers thin like that. Yumm-o! I might have to have a sandwich for dinner :)

If you wanted to fly to PA to deliver me one of those heavenly looking sandwiches, I wouldnt complain ;)

I had a sandwich today but it wasn’t on great harvest bread :( Looks like you guys are having a great time with all that bread!

I am inspired to get some sandwich fixin’s when I go to the store next! I might just have to make a special trip to your GH when it opens to see what all this bread hype is about.

Avocado on a sandwich?! YES! Gosh, that bread looks good…

Can you pllllllllease refrain on the oatmeal snobbery?! I make rolled oats in the microwave every day and they taste delish. They’re just as nutritious as the cooking method you advocate but I don’t have the avalanche of time you have to prep. While my oats are in the microwave, I can check my e-mails, run around getting ready for work, etc.

I love STRONG coffee too. I started drinking the Keurig coffee, but I’m not certain it’s strong enough for me.

That’s why I don’t like Keurig! I love the concept, but it’s always weak to me

Fun post!! I can’t wait to hear what sandwiches you decide to have at your GH. After all your talk about Great Harvest bread all week, I had to go when I was in Nashville over the weekend! I got two delicious loaves and you were right, the bread is simply delicious. I love how soft it is!
