As I mentioned in my first post, this blog started because Canale's Grocery was temporarily closed due to a family illness, sending me in search of an alternate lunch. Well today at lunchtime I came across a glorious sight -- the little store outside Collierville is back open and back to selling ham sandwiches.
The sandwiches are made in big batches and kept in a giant refrigerated cooler. They use store-bought bread, American cheese, and mustard or mayo with a little piece of iceburg lettuce and a tomato slice. And the meat on them that the Canale's people smoke themselves is so good that none of that matters. It's sandwich perfection for a mere $2.50.
