Can we talk about the pepper and egg sandwich in the [class]room? They are AH[clap emoji]MAY[clap emoji]ZING! I don't know the origins of the pepper and egg sandwich; if Chicago can claim it as their own. But I do know for fact that Cracker Jack, Vienna Beef, and Sara Lee are very much ours (Shredded Wheat too but we don't want credit for that). But even if Chicago didn't technically *invent* the "peppernegg," we have mastered it. I like to trade out the green peppers for giardiniere (as any good Chicagoan is wont to do). And of course I get them from our mecca, Portillo's! A perfect Friday Lenten lunch.
UPDATE: I texted the picture to my parents (trying to make them jealous of my awesome lunch, of course) only to find out my Dad was there at the same time for the same thing. Great minds!
