Day #79, #40 Floydian Slip

The #40 is by far one of our most popular sandwiches. It's made with raspberry jam, Zingerman's natural cream cheese, home made chicken salad, red onion and lettuce on a whole wheat wrap. 

The name from the sandwich comes from one of the very first line cooks that worked at the Laundry, named Floyd. The name Floydian Slip comes from a play on "the Freudian slip". Which is an error in speech, memory, or physical action that is interpreted as occurring due to the interference of some unconscious wish, conflict, or train of thought. 
For example: She: "What would you like, bread and butter, or cake?" He: "Bed and butter."

This sandwich is incredibly popular, and it's easy to see why. Everyone loves our chicken salad, and that in combination with the cream cheese, fresh locally made jam, and crunchy lettuce and onion make it a very enjoyable decision. Very recently we switched from American Spoon Jam products to a locally made alternative jam, which is by far better in my opinion! Zingerman's natural cream cheese is something that took me awhile to get used to, mostly because it is so much softer than regular cream cheese. If you compare the ingredients in the two types of cream cheese you will see that Zingerman's is a much better choice- it is naturally made after all!

I really enjoy this sandwich, and I think it's one that everyone should try at least once! So if you haven't tried this sandwich yet, you must. It's one that I will definitely order again and again in the future!
