Dallas and Adam always make a sandwich bet every year. I don’t know what exactly it involves.. something to do with fantasy football. Last year Dallas lost and made a fried green tomato and shrimp po’boy for Adam. I got to sample a little of it when my brother and I stopped over after watching the Hobbit last year. This year Adam lost and for payback he went to Eataly and then came over with Christine and served COURSES of sandwich. Three different sandwiches!
The first, my favorite, was a prosciutto with fresh mozzarella and basil on fresh Italian fennel bread. He made some kind of balsamic/olive oil/garlic dressing that was amazing. The second sandwich was prime rib. This was a hot sandwich and really tasty and rich. Dallas and Adam liked this one the best. Finally, there was a hot rosemary ham sandwich, which was also very good, but we were getting SO stuffed.
After dinner we sat and visited and played with Makai and ate cookies I made for dessert. Fun night.. and yeh. I can not wait to visit the Eataly in Chicago!!
