Vietnamese-Style Sandwich (Jim’s Favorite Sandwich)

C — Jim can be a picky eater.

He’s one of those guys who won’t eat the same thing three days in a row. I am the total opposite. I will eat the same thing every day for weeks until I am completely sick of it.

A few weeks ago, I had a brilliant idea to make Jim a Vietnamese-style sandwich that my entire family raved about. The moment I made it for my family, I thought Jim would like it too.

He liked it but I didn’t expect Jim to like it this much.

One day, I only had the makings of one sandwich left and there was a leftover steak dinner. I figured since Jim had the sandwiches three days in a row, I would give him the steak dinner. I really didn’t want the steak leftovers. I thought wrong. Jim got upset because he wanted the sandwich too. I didn’t expect that. Mr. Picky Eater ACTUALLY wants a rerun. WOW! OK, I had to figure out how to stretch all the items to make two.

I guess this is his favorite sandwich. I guess that’s why he bought more diakon for me.
