As far as I can tell, Tamara’s giant sandwich is designed as one of a number of details that Jenna is unable to comment upon when she is completely unable to open her mouth while recovering from having her wisdom teeth pulled out (by surprise, because that’s a thing that totally happens). Jenna’s eyeline in the fourth screenshot should indicate she sees the sandwich, and has questions about the sandwich.
And yet later in the episode when Jenna is finally allowed to speak—which, for the record, she totally could have done with gauze in her mouth if she really wanted to, as you don’t have to “put pressure” on wisdom teeth wounds in the way the show suggests—she blurts out all of the thoughts she had that she hadn’t been able to share…and she leaves out the sandwich.
It’s unclear whether the sandwich was a script joke that the Props department took too far, or a Props joke that never got translated into the script, but the fact remains that at least somebody decided that an unresolved giant sandwich joke was very, very hilarious.
I love Awkward and I love this joke.

I could post this on so many people’s walls.
