anatomy of a sandwich
today i am working from home. or should i say, "working from home." i heart working from home b/c i can sit around in sweats, start the day off with a nice walk around the neighborhood and a stop for coffee, and sit on the balcony with my laptop, enjoying the sun and light breeze. much to my surprise, i am also being relatively productive.
one of the best perks of working from home is the ability to stop and make my lunch. today i made one of my favoritest sandwiches ever and am going to devote the rest of this post to telling you the exact contents of said sandwich. no, i am not crazy. just v. appreciative of a well-made sandwich.
how to create the ultimate sandwich:
- start with lightly toasted oatnut bread. lightly toasted is key - you don't want it so soft that it yields to the pressure of the contents and you don't want it so hard that it scrapes the roof of your mouth.
- apply liberal amount of spicy brown mustard to perfectly toasted bread
- add thick slice of sharp cheddar
- pile on thinly sliced roasted turkey
- add a handful fresh spinach leaves
- add thinly sliced cucumber
- add a few slices of ripe roma tomato
- and the piece de resistance - scoop out some fresh ripe avocado and smear onto one end of the bread.
- grind a little bit of s&p on there, b/c s&p makes everything better.
et voila! serve on clean white plate with two crisp, cold dill pickle spears and a glass of fizzy italian lemon soda and enjoy. mwah! 'tis fantastico!
