The common sandwich has come a long way

Well, here is a little something fun for you.

Did you know that August is National Sandwich Month? Neither did I until I was looking for some ideas for a news column.

This is what I learned about sandwiches and thought I would share with you.

I’ve read the idea of a sandwich first came about during the Middle Ages when folks would use a slice of bread to keep meat juices from dripping on them while eating.

The bread then was given to beggars or fed to the dogs. Obviously we have decided to eat that bread ourselves.

Sandwiches are often served cold or hot, open faced or not. There is no limit to what a sandwich can be made from.
