Mayo and hot sauce can be great on the right sandwiches, too. Since we're talkin' low-cal, lighter fare, something like a fried shrimp sandwich is a great vehicle for mayo + hot sauce.

Affirmative. Seafood and spicy heat work together very nicely.

I like sandwiches, but hoagie rolls alone are a huge hit to the calorie budget. Looking at the fat and the protein, that's a lot of fatty pepperoni in thar!

Oh, and for those *not* looking to gain weight, Light Mayo FTW! When it comes to light or diet versions of anything, I think that light mayo is prolly the biggest slam dunk, in terms of taste vs fat and calorie savings.

Fat and protein? Cripes, look at the SODIUM!!!

How is fried shrimp light? Grilled shrimp definitely.

Joking. We weren't exactly talking light fare.

I mean, other than my stumping for light mayo.

All this sandwich talk and I'm over here doing the prep work for pizza tonight. (The Danish whisk worked nicely on the pizza dough, datlas, though I had to make a modification and pry the coils apart a bit - they were catching and holding stuff a la an Epilady.)

Use light beer for the batter?

Local restaurant makes pastrami they cure, smoke, and steam themselves, which they serve in a Reuben with their own sauerkraut, on buttered and toasted rye bread, with a side of pickled onions and a half a BIG dill pickle. I think it's enough sodium for a week.

It's got electrolytes!

Homemade mayo is good and not hard to make. And you can flavor it lots of ways.

Explains mucho. Present company excluded, of course.

U R doin it wrong.

Apropos of which, my siblings and I were discussing FitBits and health-tracking smartphone apps. Seems as if these things both fail to track exercise you're doing (my brother who walks every day has only walked 0.3 miles this week, per his iPhone), or they can be spoofed (my sister mentioned a woman she knew who increased her daily step count by sitting at her desk, swinging her arm).

Next time you make a sammich, try either olive oil or, for a special treat, PESTO sauce instead. Do it now and thank me later.

Did you ever have their veggie hoagie mentioned? Amazing. Voted best in the city. They used pesto. The owner and his wife got divorced and couldn’t amicably split up the assets so they closed.

I'm with you on the light mayo. I like pesto and olive oil, and use both a lot, but I like a mayo on my sammies.

I married a Lousyanna girl, and in her world a fried shrimp po-boy is a light dinner alternative to the good stuff. Of course, most everything can come fried down there, and if you ask for something grilled you are likely to get a mouth full of backlash.

Oh, fellow Dougs? A new addition to our ranks.

There was another sandwich place around here that made a prosciutto sandwich - a surprisingly thick stack of thinly sliced prosciutto on focaccia slathered with a olive oil/parsley/garlic spread that would kill a vampire at 10 paces. It was good, but you ended up drinking water all afternoon.

My wife make the observation a few months ago that runners never look like they're having a good time while running.

I'll have both, please.

Mrs BD often threatens to make some mayo, but she has not followed through yet.

Never went. But there was a Hog Island Hoagie place on 11th street near Jefferson I went to a few times that was quite good. I expect they are gone too.

I am pretty sure we have decided that running is stupid.
