Day 10: In which the sandwich is king.
It is rare that I am not in the mood for a sandwich. Granted, sometimes I feel like I’m on bread overload, but…not often. Sandwich me up, pretty much any time of the day. Here are a couple of sammiches that I have enjoyed in the past week.
Sometime last week, I had a really horrible tummyache. Remember the post where I said I ate all that leftover Chinese food? Yeah, it was the next day. Lesson learned. Anyway, it was so bad that I actually had to leave work early in order to go lay in agony on my bed for a few hours. After which, of course, I was hungry. This is a delightfully simple sandwich that put something in my belly without being heavy or spicy or soy-y or anything. Just whole wheat bread with some tomato, avocado, and Dijon mustard. It went down smooth and it did not make me barf, which is a plus.
Often, I get out of work rather late (anywhere from 9pm-1am) and often, I am starving when that happens. Luckily, last week I discovered that I had a box of Fantastic brand sloppy joe mix. I used to make this stuff all the time, but haven’t been using it recently. It was a welcome treat one night when I was hungry at midnight and running on empty. It’s super fast to cook up…and I really enjoy the directions for the slightly more complicated version on the box. But I didn’t have everything for it this time. What you see above is the mix with some diced fresh tomato and a teeny bit of fresh basil thrown in schmeared liberally on that same toasted whole wheat bread. Actually, I think it’s multigrain. Whatever. The omnivore boyfriend also really liked this! Plus, I had enough left over to take to work the next day and make a sammich with there.
Honestly, is there really anything better than a really good sandwich?
