International Flavour

August 29, 2006

Maybe I’m a little bias, but Hungarian salami has always been my salami of choice. Having had this favourite flavour, I haven’t actually tried a lot of different salamis. This time around I went for a new one, Mexican salami. It was similar, but different. It was more red in colour and dry, as opposed to Hungarian salami which is a little more oily. It sort of reminded me of a salami that would be used on pizza, for some reason.

It’s also Hungarian Pepper season right now so I took advantage of that. It is the light-yellow variety and much more mild, and sweeter than any of the other colours.

Ingredients: Mexican Salami, Cheddar Cheese, Hungarian Yellow Pepper and Hot Mustard on a whole wheat bun.

The thing about this post is that not only are the sandwiches not that impressive, but I’ve also blogged them in the past. The reason I chose to blog them once again is as an ode to my sandwich love and devotion. Not having had time to pack a lunch, nor the groceries to do so, I grabbed a couple of the $2.50 fresh sandwiches from the bakery up the road. In a situation like this, the convenience, the taste and the economic value of a sandwich is hard to compare to. For $5 I was able to full-fill both breakfast and lunch with a fresh and delicious hand held meal. I love food, yes, but the endless good qualities of a sandwich is something to admire.

Yeah Johnny. Thanks for eating a sandwich today…..and allowing me to take a picture of it. Looks delish, I hear it was ‘goooooood, very good’.

Ingredients: Terryaki-Marinated Chicken (cooked on a Foreman Grill), Sharp Irish White Cheddar Cheese, Mixed Greens and a Artichoke and Asiago Spread.

Does This Count??

Is a bagel and cream cheese a sandwich? Well, today it is. I went for a flavour I would not normally choose. I took one for the team and got a sweat bagel just to keep things interesting.

Ingredients:Orange and Poppeyseed Bagel and Cream Cheese.

I like tuna sandwiches.

Ingredients: Tuna, Celery, Green Onion, Fresh Parsley, Mayo, S&P on a whole wheat bun.

New Fave Staple

August 15, 2006

Yu-um, today’s sandwich is a new fave for me. This is the type of creation I would normally roll with for a few days in a row, if I didn’t try to keep things fresh for this blog. It’s a spin off from August 4th’s ‘Least Likely To Succeed’. I added a sprinkle of Hungarian paprika, a traditional pair to cream cheese. Yup, I will definitly be snacking on this combo more often.

Ingredients: Plain Cream Cheese, Hungarian Paprika and Banana Peppers on a whole wheat bun.

Damn Ham

August 11, 2006

Oh no, not again. I’ve been duped by the ham for the second time (see July 17th entry). I was drawn to the look of a ‘organic, free range, smoked…something, something’ with a fancy name for pork…….a.k.a. HAM! It’s not that it tasted bad, but ham is just so darn plain that it needs the right compliment (and condiment). This time, my fridge was not prepared and I was forced to go simple. It’s okay though, it’s nice to have a good old fashion tasting sammy.

Ingredients: Ham (or whatever fancy name you want to come up with), Lettuce and Mustard on whole wheat bread.

Not Just Good Looks

August 10, 2006

Yesssss, this was a fantastic sandwich. I bought a ‘Maui’ Flank Steak last night, for the BBQ and used up my leftovers today. It’s the same marinade used for Maui Ribs, kinda’ sweet, kinda’ amazing! This would have been a nice hot sandwich at home too. I would bake the cheddar cheese and sautee the green peppers with the sliced meat and maybe even put some onions in the mix.

Ingredients: Sliced ‘Maui’ Steak, Cheddar Cheese, Green Pepper, Hot Mustard on whole wheat bread.

Good, but would be better with the cheese melted.

Ingredients: Cheddar Cheese, Salsa and lettuce on Multigrain bread.

Least Likely To Succeed

August 4, 2006

I have to admit I was not too confident in this sandwich creation today. Luckily, it actually tasted pretty good. I think the key is to NOT use cream cheese sparingly. I also thought of another recipie while I was eating it; I’d like to try just cream cheese and banana peppers sometime.

Ingredients: Plain (Philladelphia) Cream Cheese, Lettuce, Cucumber, Banana Peppers and S&P on toasted multigrain bread.
