Sandwich Day is November 3rd

John Montague, born in 1718, was an English nobleman who loved to play cards. Once in 1762 he played cards at a men's club in London for 24 hours straight. He didn't want to push his luck by leaving the table to eat, so he asked that some roasted meats and cheeses be brought to him between two slices of bread so that he could hold his food in one hand and his cards in the other. The new food, the sandwich, was named for him, the Earl of Sandwich. Montague's time-saving nourishment idea caught on quickly and changed the eating habits of people forever.

Sandwich Song

Tune: "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"

Let’s all make a big sandwich--
Yummy, yummy, yum!
And on it we will put some cheese--
Yummy, yummy, yum!
With a little cheese here,
And a little cheese there,
Here cheese, there cheese, everywhere cheese, cheese!
Let’s all make a big sandwich--
Yummy, yummy, yum

Substitute mustard, ketchup, pickles, lettuce, ham, chicken, etc. for cheese in other verses.
