Patriotic Picnic Food

The final post of our patriotic picnic week is of the food -which maybe the best part! I served club sandwiches, cape cod chips and lemonade.

Club Sandwiches are best served with the extra layer of bread in between. Also, I toast the bread and butter both the top and bottom. I find that the mayonnaise on the inside seeps in less if it's buttered first.

Layers of ham, turkey, colby cheese, tomato and bacon make this sandwich a yummy classic!
Here's the history of the club sandwich from wikipedia:

1894 - The most popular theory is that the sandwich first appeared in 1894 at the famous Saratoga Club-House (an exclusive gentlemen only gambling house in upstate Saratoga Springs, New York) where the potato chips was born. Originally called Morrissey's Club House, were neither women nor locals were permitted in the gambling rooms. In 1894, Richard Canfield purchased the clubI served this awesome lemonade I found recently. Sweet Leaf Lemonade is made in Austin, Texas and also makes a variety of Sweet Iced Teas.

I try to always use Boar's Head sandwich meat. They are a little more expensive than some other deli meats, but they taste so good!

Finally, Cape Cod potato chips seemed like a classic to add to this patriotic picnic. Crisp, crunchy salty and all natural, these potato chips are all American!

I'm joining Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday and hope you will too!
