Yummiest Tuna Sandwich Ever!

A melt-in-the-mouth yummy tuna sandwich

I’ve discovered that lunch at one’s work station needn’t be a boring affair. I was contemplating what to have for lunch the other day when one of my close friends came along with a whole lot of soup packets – I was really spoilt for choice and picked one of them. It was a spicy soup – much enjoyed.

She also offered me half of her tuna sandwich. At first I said I didn’t really fancy having bread and thanked her for her kind offer. After a few minutes, I changed my mind and asked if the offer was still open. She said it was and handed me one half. I accepted it so thankful as it complemented our cups of soup.

As I gratefully bit into the sumptuous looking sandwich my palate was shocked at the luxury of this tuna sandwich. It was the tastiest, mouth-watering tuna sandwich I’ve ever had the fortune to sink my teeth into.

What a great lunchtime that turned out to be. There sitting at my desk munching on the yummiest tuna sandwich ever made. We chatted happily and I complimented her for such a wonderful, delicious tuna sandwich. She told me what was in it. I do think there is a secret ingredient! I said to my dear friend that she should think seriously about opening a tuna sandwich shop because the one she made was the best a tuna sandwich should be. An encounter, most delicious  (Mr Hercule Poirot would have said).

In the past couple of days when I thought about my dear friend’s lovely tuna sandwich, I wondered who discovered the art of sandwich or sandwiches. What interesting history is there to discover about the sandwich – a delicious morsel that has made millionaires out of enterprising people in England and across the Atlantic.

In England, here is the history of the sandwich and the place where it came from: Sandwich,  a medieval coastal town in Kent, England.
