“The only clubs I’m into are sandwiches.”
This blog post came about because I didn’t know exactly what I wanted for breakfast this morning. I knew I wanted something because I was joining a friend for a late lunch and wouldn’t hold out until lunch time.
I also knew that if I tried to hold out I’d arrive at the restaurant super hungry, order too much, and ignore my friends attempts at conversation. Bad friend! I also wanted to write another post before I left for my lunch date. And you thought you had problems.
Sandwiches! That seemed like the answer to all of my problems. Except for that one. I also came to the realization that most sandwich recipes are redundant. Yes, I know about adding onion and avocado to a BLT and turning it into a BLOAT, but that isn’t rocket surgery.
So here’s what you need to know about making a sandwich. Choose a bread or other food item for the outside and fill it with things that you love. Sort of like your life. Remember to fill it with things that you love!
MY BREAKFAST SANDWICH
Now isn’t that about the ugliest sandwich you’ve ever seen? Whatever. My sandwich contained things I love. First, there’s the bread, which is lightly toasted and gluten free. That’s so I don’t walk around in a wheat fog and sleep for the rest of the day.
The white item is a bit of Port Salut, cut into little pieces to cover the lower slice of bread. Port Salut happens to be my favorite cheese, unless I’m eating some other cheese, which would automatically make that my favorite cheese.
The dark green is one of many jalapeño slices. Love them! Not visible, but in attendance, are two slices of crisp bacon. I bake up bacon by the pound and store it in the fridge. That way bacon is always ready to nuke and use. Yes!
Finally, as a nod to nutrition, there’s some leaf lettuce, which also seems a bit redundant. Does lettuce come in any other form besides the leaf form?
And there you have it – a sandwich I thoroughly enjoyed in spite of its lack of photographic allure. Are some of you suggesting things I could have added, such as tomato? Didn’t have any or they’d be there.
Now it’s your turn. Your next meal is right around the corner.
