Pastrami Sandwiches.

So we ventured out to our neighborhood deli yesterday. We got to the counter and were in a red meat mood. Just as we were about to order up some roast beef, the phrase "a pound of pastrami please" floated out of us. And we've gotta say, we can't remember the last time alliteration tasted this good. Why has it been so long since we've had a pastrami sandwich? We're not kidding around here, we've already had about three of them today. And if we're not careful, the whole pound will be gone by dark. We're told that pastrami was created as a method for preserving meat from spoilage in an age before modern refrigeration methods. Today, it preserved us from the Monday blahs and for that we could not be more grateful. Thank you, pastrami sandwich. You really are the king of the salt-cured meats. We promise not to neglect you for this long again.
