I'M ON AN EXTREME DIET TODAY, AND BY EXTREME DIET, I MEAN I'm only eating sandwiches for the rest of the month of August (because I just found out it is National Sandwich month, and I'm hungry)!

My favorite sandwich is at Arby's fast food restaurant, believe it or not. They make a mean Turkey Ranch Bacon Sandwich! The tanginess of the ranch dressing pairs perfectly with the crispy fried bacon, and the soft and thick rye bread brings out the sweetness of the roasted turkey. It is so thick, I usually have to take off some of the turkey so that I can actually fit a bite of the sandwich in my mouth! It's so good, it'll make you slap ya mama!

On the other hand, if you consider burgers as sandwiches, then the BEST sandwich in Yakima* is at Cowiche Canyon Kitchen & Icehouse Bar (202 East Yakima Ave)! They have this burger called The International Harvester**. If I am not ordering their crispy chicken sandwich, then I order The International Harvester burger every time I dine there. I am not the only one who loves this culinary delight! OMG. This burger is so good, it'll make you slap your mama***!

Enjoy your diet!
