Have you ever noticed how most of the best meals are pretty simple? Don't get me wrong: I like to try new things, and I love reading descriptions at restaurants of exactly how a meal has been cooked and spiced. That said, the split lunch I had today--one sandwich at around noon, the other at around 3:30--was, well, perfect. And simple.
At noon, I cut two slices of challah from a loaf I bought at Lunds. Between those two slices, I inserted deli meat (barbecue chicken) and fresh avocado. So it was a chicken and avocado sandwich on good bread--that's it. Oh, and I ate a peach, too.
At 3:30, I cut another two slices of challah (knowing that I have about a day before it gets too dry to eat without toasting it first), spread peanut butter with honey on the bottom slice, plopped a banana sliced vertically on top of the peanut butter, and voila!: a peanut butter, honey, and banana sandwich, the perfect second half to a perfect meal.
Now the real question: Why did I write this? I don't know. If nothing else, maybe I whet your appetite, huh? For more on my (lack of) food wisdom, see my Chipotle Burrito Test.
Oh, and don't forget to attend my book-release party (also a back-to-school celebration) on Sunday, August 25th. Details below, in the previous post.
