Eat a Sandwich Today

Today is National Sandwich Day.  I eat sandwiches for lunch almost every day.  They are fast, easy, and generally cheap.  And you can eat them with only one hand, which is just what John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich needed.

In 1762, after having sat at a card table for hours gambling he asked for something he could eat without having to get up so he could continue his game.  The cook did what all of us do and slapped some meat between two pieces of bread and his meal was served.  They soon caught on and became very popular in England and were first served in restaurants and later became popular on picnics.
