I got a kick out of this story so I thought I’d share it with you!!

Let’s start with understanding where the sandwich came from.  Today is not only National Sandwich Day, but it is also the birthday of the 4th Earl of Sandwich.  Lord Sandwich was a notorious gambler and it is believed that he demanded a way to eat his dinner with one hand so that he could continue to play cards without stopping to eat.  He instructed his servants to give him his meat between two pieces of bread to avoid getting his cards greasy.  His citizens began ordering the “same as Sandwich” and eventually his creation was given the name “the sandwich.”  After that, sandwiches were primarily eaten  by men during late night drinking parties or card games.  By the 20thcentury, the sandwich had become a quick weeknight meal and convenient lunch enjoyed by everyone.
