So I started with dessert first because the ice cream sandwiches here melt surprisingly quickly. One moment it’s rock solid and the next it’s a sticky puddle. Lucky, I managed to wolf it down before the structural integrity of the sandwich was completely lost. The main dish tonight (Chicken Philly) was on the smaller side in terms of previous main dishes but it was tasty. The bread was a tad soggy but the bun-to-meat ratio was excellent. I actually enjoyed the snack-size portion as I was still pretty full from lunch.
I opted to save the Penne Pasta Salad for lunch tomorrow.
