A perfect sandwich

I think I may have found the perfect sandwich.

For the last three days, eschewing my normal routine of packing my lunch (I neglected to buy groceries when I got back from L.A.), I have gone down to the Au Bon Pan in the mall below my office building and ordered a “custom” sandwich from their sandwich bar. Here’s what I get:

A whole crioissant
Smoked turkey
Sharp cheddar
Mayo
Lettuce
Tomato
Guacamole

I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten a sandwich that I’ve enjoyed as much as I have these last three days. They are delicious. The only problem is that they are pricey: $6.88 and that does not include chips or a drink.
