Ok. Guys. Memorial Day came and went. For Kubicki people, that means it’s SUMMER!
And summer calls for a little switch-er-roo in the day in day out sandwich department in our house – namely the reintroduction of SUMMER SANDWICHES! You know what I mean. Tomato sandwiches, BLTs, bagels with cream cheese and lox. Salivating yet?
Well as luck would have it, I wandered into my kitchen today to find some inspiration for lunch and VOILA. The lunch above came to life – briefly, mind you.
So what’d I do? First I started with a very grainy and seeded organic, whole grain, sandwich bread. Pick your favorite. Then lightly toast.
Next I slathered cream cheese with chives on both sides, and added a layer of ham to one, a layer of thinly sliced cucumber to the other. Add light S&P sprinkle if you will.
Then I layered fresh tomato slices, a smidge more S&P on those, another slice of ham (feel free to load it up – I went light with mine as the pool is now open after all – if you catch my drift) and topped it off with loads of romaine lettuce! I would have added some green or black olives and fresh sprouts if I’d had any on hand – they would be delicious crammed in there! And a leaf or two of fresh basil if you want to layer even more fresh flavor!
Crunchy. Creamy. Nutritious. Delicious! And…SUMMERY!
So I got to thinking…I know I’m not the only one who loves summer sandwiches. What kinds do you like to make? Shoot me a pic and show me your stuff! I’d love to add a couple of your photos to the blog!
Until we meet again…live happy!
