What I miss...



So, by now I am sure you have read somewhere on my blog some of the things that I miss from my childhood home...

my family is number one of course,
but when it comes to "things" that I miss here is my Numero Uno:


Yes, this is the famous Primanti's Bros. sandwich from Pittsburgh.
They are so yummy...
I know it looks a little different, but let me try to explain this sandwich.

They start with the most delicious, soft with a harder crust Italian bread, then you pick your meat...my favorite is Cappicola but others include pastrami, keilbasa, roast beef, corned beef, salami, etc....
next is the usual tomato, cheese....
then comes the ultimate difference: french fries and cole slaw.
Now, not just any cole slaw...not your run of the mill runny, soggy, too much liquid, small cut up cabbage, cole slaw...
the most delicious, spicy cole slaw you ever tasted!
The french fries are thick and add just a little bit of texture.
Side it with a tart dill pickle slice and your taste buds soar with flavor!

Have a root beer with it, and you have a yummy 'burgh experience. Enhanced with a Steeler game is even better, but you better get there early, because the restaurants fill up!

Ah, if you ever pass through Pittsburgh, be sure not to miss one of these sandwiches!
Happy Monday :)

Those things make us so nostalgic when we are far from home. But then we appreciate them so much more when we go back!
