I'm On A Mission

I am pretty crazy. When I decide that I am doing something, I don't stop until it is done, no matter what it is.

There is a sandwich shop in Arlington, Uncle Boo Boo's that makes a great chicken salad sandwich. I have not been in a long time, but I went twice last week. With gas being so expensive and driving an hour round trip to get a sandwich, I decided I would try and recreate it. I am pretty good at doing that. This one has been a challenge.

The sandwich is made on Branola bread (a really sweet smooth wheat bread) with chicken salad, spinach leaves, and mashed up avocado. They have a seasoning on the table called "Spike" that I load on. It is so good.

I can recreate the chicken salad, but I can't find the bread. I have "googled" it and the only thing I can find is that it is served at Jason's Deli. I did not realize that they were the same, but I always order my sandwiches at Jason's on Branola.

I have been to Market Street, 2 Wal-Marts and Kroger looking for the seasoning. No luck. I finally gave up this morning and ordered it on the internet. I don't have a problem doing that, but I had to order 12 bottles. That's right, 12 bottles and I spent $25 on this seasoning.

I better find the bread soon.

This post cracked me up! So what does this seasoning taste like??? I might need to "buy" a bottle from you since you're stocking it now!

Yeah, put me down for a bottle, too! That is so funny. I know how you are when you're on a mission ... so get me the bread, too. I know you will find it. :)

You're crazy! I can't wait to try the sandwich - it MUST be good!

I've seen Spike at health food markets before. Did you try Sunflower Shop in Fort Worth? I guess you kinda hope they don't carry it now that you've ordered a boat-load though, huh?! lol
