Comment on Maine-Style “Italian” Sandwich by Hazel.

Oh – The Italian Sandwich! I grew up in Maine and have been in the Midwest for 36 years. Most every year when I fly home (if it’s not too late at night) first thing I do is find an Italian! Tomorrow my KS kids and grandkids will be here and we’re having Italians for lunch. The rolls ARE the hardest part. Maine baked beans for supper. Life is good!

Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
