Maize and Blue Deli II

Maize and Blue Deli II

Maize and Blue Deli, Take II. I think this needs to be my new Saturday tradition. Last Saturday, I ordered #27 off the MDB Menu, which was variation of Smoked Turkey on Pumpernickel (and life-changing). Given how good the Smoked Turkey was last time, I was hesitant to stray, so this Saturday I also ordered a … Continue reading
