Pasta, roast chicken or sandwich

     Every time I ask for ideas of what to have for dinner, my husband replies with 3 options: pasta, roast chicken or sandwiches.  Now, I like sandwiches as much as the next person but when I ask for ideas, I want inspiration.  BUT there is only so much inspiration you can muster together when your partner’s brain is stuck on 3 food settings.  So I have to use my creative talents on the options given.

Case in point, this sandwich.  No humdrum ham and cheese for me.  Salty bacon (drool), creamy brie (double drool), and the sweetness of the roasted red pepper drizzled in balsamic vinegar (puddle of drool).  Put it in between two slices of your favorite bread and you’ve got it made.

I could eat this tasty sandwich for the rest of my life and I knew it was damn good when I wanted it for dinner after already eating it for lunch.  Luckily for us, we ran out of ingredients forcing us to eat something else the next day.  Pathetic, I know but hey, have you seen this sandwich?  I mean…can you blame me?
