The Four Foot Triplets

                                                                                      

While I was in Las Vegas this past week, this isn’t that kind of story…

I have a whole bunch of really great friends who I owed a killer BBQ to. I flipped and flopped between a few ideas and then got to thinking about making big, giant grilled subs. I called up my friends at Richman’s bakery to see what they could do for me.

Me: “Jonah, what can you do me for in the way of giant sandwich buns?”
Jonah: “Gav – I can do a 12-inch sub style bun. Does that work?”
Me: “No, no, no. BIG sandwich buns.”
Jonah: “Oh. you mean those over sized sub buns we used to make for sandwiches at your high school? Remember those? They’re 18 inchers.”
Me: “Jonah – think BIG!”
Jonah: “Umm. I can do some 4 footers that’ll feed 8 – 10 people each.”

Bingo!

And thus – the 4 foot triplets were born…
