Veggie Sandwich

I have decided that I will do personal posts often using images from my life… cooking, children, friends, love, family, and such.  I have all of these beautiful images that I enjoy sharing with my friends and family and what better way than on my blog?  As I have become older, more adult?, I find myself becoming passionate in certain areas.  FOOD is definitely a passion of mine.  Could be a curse, because I love expensive gourmet food – at least when I go out to eat which is quite costly. However in the home I am learning to be frugal and to think outside of the box to create yummy, easy, and inexpensive meals.
There are some days when I think I could pull off being a vegetarian.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a fantastic med-rare fillet, moist and buttery sea-bass, succulent lobster, and Uncle Julio’s chicken fajitas, but I LOVE veggies too.  I have recently cut meat out of my diet when I CAN, just to keep the fat content down and the ‘who knows what is injected in meat’ worries lower.  The new Kroger by TCU is fantastic.  They have a variety of veggies (both organic and non-organic) to choose from and at reasonable prices.  Anyway am I rambling yet?  My point – you should go, check it out, and have fun picking out beautiful, fresh, and tasty food (they even have a fresh sushi bar.mmm.).  I haven’t been the best about eating healthy meals as much and really want to incorporate such foods into the Jenkins’ diets.  This particular day I was craving a veggie sandwich and it was simple.

My ingredients:

  • Two pieces of white bakery bread (yes, I know wheat is better, but this was so soft and moist – plus it was made in the bakery)
  • Olive Oil based Mayo
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Havarti Cheese (um, yum!!!)
  • Thinly sliced tomato
  • Paper Thin Vidalia Onion Slices
  • Avocado – Nice and Ripe
  • Iceberg Lettuce (I love the crispness it adds to the sandwich, obviously the least nutritious choice)
  • Hot Pepper Rings (I think they are the same as banana peppers and add the perfect amount of tartness)

Here are the images from my lunch preparation. 

Pause: Don’t forget to feed the hungry baby some fresh veggies!

I love to load up on fresh cracked pepper and sea salt.  Ever since I had Pierson my salt liking spiked way too high.  I salt… salt.

Stack those veggies.  Mmmm.  Isn’t it bright and pretty?Woah, that’s a bit too high for my liking.Now, that is better – shmmoooosh.I could probably eat this every day.  Ciao!
