Mmm, sandwiches!

Well, now that I have a little more time on my hands, hopefully I can cook and write a little more!

My sister works at Panera and gets an amazing discount. Great news for carb fiends like me, so whenever I'm near her store and she's at work, I try to stop by and grab a little something.

Tuesday, I picked up a loaf of tomato basil bread. It's got cinnamon on the top crust, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. It's just so trendy lately to put cinnamon in everything, and... truth is, I'm not crazy about the cinnamon love. I think it works, but the grilled sandwich I made last night tasted a little too much like French toast at the top.

Still, they were delicious. I'm at work right now, absolutely starving and craving about six more sandwiches.

  • 4 slices of tomato basil bread
  • 1 small tomato, sliced
  • mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 3-4 basil leaves, chopped
  • black pepper
  • 1/2 small onion, sliced
  1. Oh, for [stuff]'s sake, you know how to make a grilled cheese sandwich.

Ouch! Has it really been two weeks? Man. I feel like I almost never get to do anything because I feel like it anymore.

Well, that's not completely true. I did get to go hang out with The Mr. and his friend a couple weekends ago. 'Course, he lives way out in BFE, so we had to go down to Fredericksburg to get food (and it wasn't even good food, it was Tex-Mex with extra Tex).

I'm also on another eat-less-food kick, which sucks because I really like food. I like food a lot. But I've refused to get married if I weigh more than 120 pounds on my wedding day, so I have a year to lose mumbly-mumble pounds. And since I'm one of those women that just can't eat much, I'm constantly hungry (and, as a result, bitchy).

My dinner of choice for the past two nights? A very simple wrap:

  • 1 tomato-basil tortilla
  • 2 tablespoons of hummus (I used sun-dried tomato and basil)
  • 2 romaine leaves
  • 2-3 tomato slices
  • Freshly ground black pepper

  1. Spread the hummus in the center of the tortilla.
  2. Add the romaine leaves, then the tomato slices.
  3. Grind some pepper over the tomato.
  4. Wrap! Eat!
