I think I finally found that perfectly awesome sandwich shop that makes me crave the meats in the sandwich. It is the super thick cut ham that is the superstar of the sandwich. It feels really good to have such a tasty sandwich. We have the Super Supreme Club sandwich for our random meal of the day. This wonderfully super awesome sandwich is not your ordinary club sandwich. We start with three fresh slices of toasted sourdough bread and add to it turkey, bacon and ham for the meaty portion. We then add Swiss cheese, fresh avocado slices, lettuce, tomato and bind it all together with a touch of mayonnaise. Awesome!
Found at Ham Supreme Shops in Redondo Beach, CA.

Happy National Tapioca Day! It is June 28th and random meal of the day is celebrating another food holiday! We have Boba Milk Tea or otherwise known as Tapioca Milk Tea. The tea contains the featured treat of round pearl tapioca which translates into Boba. The awesome moist and chewy tapioca with a silky smooth gummy bear like texture contrasts the sweet milk tea and gives the random meal treat a one two punch! Once again Random Mealers, go out and celebrate National Tapioca Day!

We have The 50/50 Burger for our random meal of the day. This burger patty is made with 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef. That's right, it is one rare occasion when 50% beef is better than 100% beef. The burger is topped with an egg fried over medium, with pepper jack cheese, chipole mayo and some avocado mash. So, what did I do when half the burger is already bacon, well, of course I topped the burger with some thick cut bacon. Bacon overload in a very good way!

We have a incredible order of Beignets for our random meal of the day treat! I been dreaming about these particular beignets for about a year and a half but I oh so dreaded the super long lines at Bredna's. To ensure that I enjoy the experience, I actually extended my foodcation by one extra day and thus I got to enjoy these lovely beignets and had the room to maneuver and photograph them. To my surprise, they actually remodeled and open up a larger space right next door. Wow, what a difference. I was able to enjoy the random meal with plenty of space around me. They are actually in the process of remodeling the original restaurant and when they are complete, it will be able to serve more people! YES! Until next time oh wonderful beignets.

It's back! Yes finally the Strawberry Poppyseed and Chicken Salad is again the featured random meal of the day. It is funny how I would randomly check on the Panera Bread website to see if the salad was back yet. Last year I found out about the salad at the end of the featured season and thus missed out on trying it at least one more time. Well ten months later, I finally get to photograph and eat this amazing salad again. This salad only clocks in at 340 calories, and contains Citrus & Pepper Chicken on top of chopped romaine lettuce mixed with strawberries, mandarin oranges, blueberries, pecans and pineapple. The amazing thing is the awesome fat free poppyseed dressing that brings the entire salad together is only 25 calories. This is a light and refreshing delicious random meal.

Happy National Frozen Yogurt Day! For this food holiday, random meal of the day presents the Tart Frozen Yogurt topped with fresh Blackberries.
