How are you guys doing? I’m in recovery mode from this weekend! My body isn’t sore anymore, but man – am I tired. I would love to curl up on the couch and watch back-to-back episodes of Parenthood all day. But alas – that must wait until the kiddo’s bedtime! He is much more interested in Thomas the Tank Engine…
Anyway – I did get us out of the house for a trip to the gym (this was before the 1 PM sleepies hit!). I swam an awesome 1000 yards – I’ll have to post the workout for you tomorrow. It’s a good one and went by so quickly.
So after some quality (and quiet) block-building time, Henry and I set out to make this sandwich. He has just figured out that sandwiches are the COOLEST. THING. EVER. He’s also caught on that I eat sandwiches while he eats deconstructed bread and fillings, so now he REALLY wants to eat what I’m eating. He’s still mastering the two-handed sandwich hold, and most of the time, the fillings fall out on the floor (except peanut butter – but that comes with it’s own mess!). So while his version of My Favorite Vegetarian Sandwich didn’t include all the fillings (he just had cheese), this was doubly fun to make and eat together.
Here’s what you’ll need to make My Favorite Vegetarian Sandwich:
Start with toasted Udi’s bread.
Add a smear of yellow mustard.
Add two thin slices of grilled zucchini.
Add a slice of grilled squash.
Add grilled mushrooms.
Add a big, thick slice of cheddar cheese.
Add bread and butter pickles (I HAVE A SERIOUS PICKLE PROBLEM RIGHT NOW – #clichéd)
Top with another slice of toasted Udi’s bread.
Maybe this sounds like a funny combo, but I swear – it’s really, really good. The mustard and pickles are key, so don’t skip those!
I’ve been thinking a lot about my healthy eating journey, and one thing that I’ve concluded is that it’s so much easier to eat healthy on a daily (or weekly!) basis when you really love what you’re eating. When I first cleaned up my diet, I had a serious misconception that healthy eating was boring or restrictive or bland. But it’s really not – it’s about finding delicious combinations, trying new foods, and re-envisioning your favorite dishes.
What’s your favorite sandwich combo?
