Jerod Mayo was drafted by the New England Patriots in the first round (10th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft ... Signed by the Patriots (7/24/08). This Thursday we play the Jets again we need him to play as he did the first meeting with I believe 11 Tackles - 10 Solo and 1 Assist. He hits often and hard, maybe too hard sometimes.
Here is a sandwich that hits you hard in a good way.
This came from Scup’s In the Harbor the restaurant my sister and her husband used to own and operate in East Boston, now they live on the opposite coast in Washington state but still root for the patriots. We even Skype some of the games for them if not on national TV. They are still keeping some stuff a secret so I had to wing it, gee my own sister go figure. Kind of like your Mom a little of this and handful of that.
Boston magazine declared this the ULIMATE BLT of Boston a few years ago.
Oh if you want a Thanksgiving Day recipe try my Buttermilk Marinated Turkey but marinated at least 8 hours or overnight turning once start breast side up.
Ok here we go

We admit it’s tough to make a bad BLT (there is bacon in there, after all). But it’s a genuine challenge to ace every element—crisp strips of meat, sweetly ripe tomato, lettuce with just the right crunch—and elevate this humble sandwich to warm-weather classic. Scup’s in the harbor rises to the occasion with cherry wood–smoked bacon and roasted cherry tomatoes nestled on red leaf lettuce. Sliced cheddar and a spot of pesto mayo add zing and texture without overpowering the key players, and sturdy slices of toasted wheat keep hands clean and flavor at the fore. Boston Magazine 8-2009
