Healthified Italian Sub

Today, it dawned on me:  I am kitchen appliance dependent. 

Nearly every meal I cook up makes use of my oven, stove top, or George Foreman grill.  If the meal is not something that typically requires one of these appliances I FIND a way to use them.  A sandwich, for example, can go from “meh” to “ohmmmmmmm myyyy gawddd” with just a quick bake in the oven. 

Take a gander at today’s lunch:


Why oh why can’t I put a toaster oven in my cubicle???  Google searches for “cubicle toaster oven” and “George Foreman in my cubicle” turned up with disappointing results…  (Yes, I actually spent 30 minutes looking at this) Alas, at least I get to use my gadgets for weekend lunches!

Today’s delicious healthified Italian sub consisted of:

  • 1 Pepperidge farm 7 grain deli flat
  • 4 ounces lean turkey breast
  • 1/2 a slice Sargento Pepper jack cheese
  • red onion
  • tomato
  • banana peppers
  • 4 slices turkey pepperoni
  • 1 tbsp Ken’s Steakhouse Lite Italian Romano dressing
  • Couple sprinkles of Franks Red Hot
  • dried oregano
  • black pepper

All together nah:


I popped this guy into a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese was nice and melty:


Then sandwiched the two halves together:



Of course I also had a good size salad on the side, which rounded out this lovely Sunday lunch.


Love me some veggies Smile
