I know I should be showing you flowers but
I have to tell ya that this time of year it’s hard for us to
get a varied diet. As a matter of fact though
we eat pretty sensibly we often get into a rut with our meals.
Breakfast is the same with each of us eating
3 fried eggs a piece…sometimes he eats 4. Being the man and all:)
For lunch I make a salad with tuna added on top.
The dressing I always make myself.
I go by the salad dressing aisle in the store and think to myself
who buys this stuff?
apparently everyone! or they wouldn’t have it there.
I really like making my own.
Anyways I came across this recipe from Martha Stewart.
Most of the time I just delete the emails but this one was called
18 picnic sandwiches…….
I like sandwiches!
They listed the usual meat laden kind but then I saw this hummus one and had to check it out.
Seemed pretty easy and healthy to boot.
thought you might likey!
and it’s pretty too….except if you don’t like the color orange.
you don’t have to decorate with it …..just eat it.
2 slices whole-wheat bread
- 1/4 cup store-bought hummus
- 1 tablespoon store-bought tapenade (olive spread)
- 1/4 cucumber, thinly sliced
- 1 coarsely grated carrot
Spread 1 slice bread with hummus; spread remaining slice of bread with tapenade
Top hummus with cucumber slices and carrot. Place bread with tapenade on top to form a sandwich.
added little tip from Martha:
Wrapping this sandwich in wax paper instead of plastic wrap
will prevent the bread from absorbing too much moisture and will keep the sandwich fresher.
( sorry for lack of visits and postings lately. These days of working 7 days a week 16 hr days
has left little time for play.
I’ll try to post some pictures soon….if I ever get time to download the few pics I have taken.
