I brought in a half of a tomato that I had left over. I didn't want to put it directly on the sandwich when I made it because after 4.5 hrs in the fridge it would get a little mushod. Next, I went downstairs to the cafeteria and noticed they had roasted whole jalapenos. I grabbed a couple of those along with some salt and pepper and a mayo packet knowing they would be a great addition. Prior to recreating the sandwich, I disassembled it and toasted the bread. Most sandwiches, especially those on sliced bread taste better toasted. Finally I put the sandwich back together in the following order, because the proper layering of a sandwich is key. Slice of toasted bread, hickory smoked turkey, provolone, sliced tomato, salt, roasted jalapeno, mayo, pepper, toast.
After two bites of the sandwich, I had an instant feeling in my stomach. I immediately thought if this was how Joe Mentalino, the character in Dumb and Dumber with the stomach ulcer, felt after taking a bite of his burger. That didn't stop me from finishing it though. I battled through it, it was delicious. So far, I have no regrets.
