Lisa: Muffuletta

This year, the girls exchanged gifts at Jason's Deli, a chain that prominently features the muffaletta on its menu. No one in our group wanted to order the muffaletta, because we didn't know what it was (and no one wanted to ask what it was, for fear of looking dumb). Also, we couldn't bear to involve ourselves in a dialogue including the words "whole, half, or quarter muff."

Thanks to Wikipedia, I can now report that the muffaletta is a huge sandwich defined by its bread (a round, foccacia-type bread, not a muffin or English muffin as some of us guessed) and by the presence of a spread made of olives.

In other Jason's menu news, a Po'Boy is a sub sandwich made on a baguette, and "Spud au Broc" joins "Moons Over My Hammy" and its compatriots in the category of "menu items too embarassing to order by name."

I LOVE Jason's Deli. It's so yummy. Their baked potatoes are yummy.

So many people have told me that Lisa, that their potatoes are the best! I have never been to Jasons Deli nor have I tried their potatoes. Hmmmm, guess I will have to try it now!

Lis, thank you for this information. I can now order without fear. Though I probably still won't be getting the muffaletta.

The muffaletta is surprisingly good ; it's what I generally order from Jason's. Eating the half-sized one is enough to keep most people full for a day (although on a dare I ate an entire one once and regretted it). The Wiki article on Po'Boys is pretty interesting too, if you're ever bored.
