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
- 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
