this sandwich could change me
I'm not really a sandwich eater. I will take one in my lunch if I'm desperate, and I do like grilled cheese and stuff from subway, but high school Anne ruined sandwich eating forever. Everyday in high school I used to eat a half sandwich with 2-3 pieces of that super thin turkey (not even a full serving size) and a slice of cheese. And I ate it warm-ish right out of my sitting-in-my-locker-all-day lunchbag. Thinking back I can see why I was so skinny back in high school. Every morning I'd have a cup of milk, a piece of toast and an apple. Or the occasional lucky day when dad would make me eggs and potatoes... miss those days! I would take all of these things into the shower with me while I was getting ready, I'd set them on the far ledge of the tub and take bites occasionally. I don't do this anymore, but I still eat breakfast in the bathroom most mornings when I'm not eating it at work. Anyway, I didn't eat much but I don't remember ever feeling hungry either!? Supply and demand I guess. Anyway, on to the sandwich. A week or so ago someone posted one of those things on facebook, 52 meals under 12 minutes. And I made a note of a few to try, one was this: And I was thinking, hmmm, oniony oiled beans? But I made it, and it was delicious Yum. Really good. This weekend was a quick one since I worked Saturday. I got to meet my friend's beautiful new baby, went to church with Jill, and spent a bit of Sunday bike riding and walking on the trail with Doug. It was a lovely day. I also made this: I'm not the best chili maker, Jill makes a good one, but this time Doug was nearby and told me to put rice in it, and it was pretty good. Lots of beans, lots of protein and fiber!
