Wow - now I'm hungry after reading this. Your sandwiches sound awesome - and I agree about the meat thing. Jake and I notice the same thing lately about ourselves. It's just not worth it anymore. I can see our B&B idea is evolving. Hmm...I like the lunch counter idea.

I love sandwiches, especially crunchy, vegie-stuffed, inventive ones. You should post the occasionally sandwich recipe here (I don't know where to get organic cold cuts anymore than I knew where to get healthy cheese snacks,) so maybe post possible substitutions as well.

I love cream soda too! What's your favorite brand? I can rarely find anything worth drinking down here. It doesn't seem to be a southern thing.

Lapdwife: Hey, I thought you were going to do the breakfast bar! Okay, we can share the sandwich counter, I guess.

Faith: Next best thing to organic is probably Boar's Head. Or look for small delicatessens, either Jewish or Italian, where they make their own roast beef. If they don't, check the ingredients and avoid anything made with dextrose, corn syrup or nitrates. That should help.

Faith, there are whole foods in the Atlanta area, but I'm not sure where you live exactly. Here are the Georgia locations: http://www.wholefoods.com/stores/list_GA.html

If you're not familiar with Whole Foods, you are going to fall in love. You may need to take out a loan, though, to shop there.

Sadly, there are no Trader Joe's in your neck of the woods.

No way, we stick to our strong points. I do the breakfast buffet. You do a cool lunch counter deal - pack neat picnics of your super sandwiches and some fruit moonshine to go with it. We'll be a bed-and-brunch sort of deal!

and I love Faith's idea. You should do a sandwich of the week on here. That would be great - I'm always looking for new ideas. We get stuck in the tuna fish rut too often at my house.

As soon as my hubby comes off his diet, we can start eating sandwiches again. I hate going to all that trouble just for myself.

I'll start compiling favorite concoctions. Most of them are just variations on normal, boring cold cut sandwiches with a few "extras" like cucumber slices, but I'll try. (Oooh . . . the pressure)

When I come to your neck of the woods (around December 19th I think) forget about In N Out burgers,let's go to Dr. Bobs!

You could making your own soda. It's just like making home brew I hear. I won't let Big Bad Dad make any though, because Monkey Boy would be drinking root beer (and burping) 24/7.

Anne-Marie: Yes on the Dr. Bob's. I am always happy to gain new converts to the Dr. Bob religion. All you need to know is the mantra: Yuuummmmmmm ...

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
