I love Publix subs. They are my favorite hungover food EVER (Sorry Mom)! I do like them for lunch or dinner or in the middle of the night.... Needless to type, there is something about a Publix sub that makes me happy.
This week for date night my Husband (OMG) decided to take me to Publix Deli to get subs then bring them to Lake Ella for a picnic. The weather has been perfect as fall is in full swing in Tallahassee so I was excited!
I ordered my usual..white bread with turkey and muenster cheese. Publix deli is know for there amazing bread which far surpasses Subway bread. In addition, all the meat and cheese are cut daily. So super fresh on the best bread.
Now there is a little know trick to ordering the perfect sub at publix.....ask for your toppings on the side. I know weird...but go with me on it
Tomatoes, onions, lettuce, pickles and ect make sandwiches soggy if you don't eat them right away. Instead, you can ask the very nice deli person for your toppings on the side..ie a bag or small container. If you are super picky, (the Hubby hates onions) you can ask to have each topping individually bagged...this way the pickles are not contaminated by the onions. (Seriously he HATES raw onions!) I have also noticed by asking for the veggies on the side I get more. So, I am not the person say, "No more olives...no even more please!" Now before you think this is an unusual request and the very nice deli person is going to make faces at you or object. I have been requesting this for years and have never had that occur. I always split a Publix sub with my Mom when I go to school with her. If we get the sub the night or morning before, we get the veggies on the side so there is sogginess. Plus, then her veggies don't get on my half and my veggies don't get on her half.
Either way, I love me some Publix subs. Beware the lines get crazy at lunch and dinner times.
As for my sub on my picnic, it was fabulous with the view of Lake Ella in the background. We did have a black duck that must have found our sub appetizing because he circled around us the WHOLE time we ate.
