This was my lunch yesterday. It is a sardine on whole wheat with Swiss today. The previous sandwich edition used no-fat cheese. Also I used a whole wheat hoagie bun instead of the whole wheat regular bread. And the pickles were on the side.

It tasted good, but was a little on the dry side. Next time in addition to the mustard I will blather it with no- or low-fat mayo.

Technically, this is a po-boy as sardines are fish. The excerpt below is from the History of Hoagies, Submarine Sandwiches, Po' Boys Sandwiches, Dagwood Sandwiches, & Italian Sandwiches Web site (link): [fish emphasis is mine]

"Po' Boy (poo-boy) - Also know as Oyster Loaves. Po' Boy is the generic name for the standard New Orleans sandwich made with French bread. They are considered a New Orleans institution. Also called poor boy. Always made with French bread, Po' boys can be filled with fried oysters, shrimp, fish, soft-shelled crabs, crawfish, roast beef and gravy, roast pork, meatballs, smoked sausage and more."

In addition, the article tells of the beginning of the po-boy, or poor-boy sandwich, in New Orleans. And it tells this reason for the name. Thesandwich, on a hoagie bun, was filled with scrap meat and sold for a nickel or given to the poor. Those 'poor boys really appreciated their po-boy sandwich.

In addition to my sardine sandwich, I had this for dessert. Cantalope with Blue Bell Light Homemade Vanilla ice cream. Yummy!

I don't think I could handle that sardine sandwich, but the cantalope looks wonderful
Yuk!! Sardines?
How did you keep that Amber from attacking this or even poor starving Adi from trying to swipe it on the sly when your back was turned?
The only thing I would like about this sandwich is the bread and the mustard...lots of mustard and lots of hot peppers and peanut butter..yummy!!
The friut looks good though....Love Terry
Ewwwwww...thanks, but no thanks on the fish sandwich. When myhusband eats sardines I chase him out of the house.

Love cantaloupe and ice cream though. Yummmmmmmm.
Curiouser and curiouser.
I like sardines on a cracker with mayo. But that's it.
No thank you to the sardine sandwich. The dessert looks great though!!
