grinder

(noun) A large sandwich made of a long crusty roll split lengthwise and filled with meats and cheese (and tomato and onion and lettuce and condiments); different names are used in different sections of the United States.

Synonyms: hoagie, Italian sandwich, poor boy, sub, Cuban sandwich, zep, torpedo, wedge, bomber, hero

Usage: I usually have a salad for lunch, but today I am going to treat myself to a carb-laden, ham-stuffed grinder.

The usage in today's word of the day of grinder being a sandwich is unknown in the U.K.. In the U.K. grind can be either 'to reduce to fine dust' as in grinding flour or a shaping method of removing, usually metal. with a rapidly rotating abrasive wheel or disk. A sandwich? Never.
