Last day for eating sandwiches, as I leave behind bread for the next few months. I love bacon and avocado sandwiches and I love Green Goddess dressing – so put them altogether and I am in pig heaven (no pun intended towards the bacon, really). Goodbye bread, hello low carb. Will miss this sandwich but all is not lost as I can still enjoy all of the other ingredients on my new food plan (notice I didn’t say “diet” – am trying to avoid negativity, and diets always remind me of deprivation – Ha!)
On a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon I looked high and low in my refrigerator for something to make for lunch that would bring joy to my heart and stomach on such a drizzly, overcast, and not-so-good day. Couldn’t find lefovers, didn’t want to get out the pots and pans and construct something from scratch, and there lo and behold hiding behind a fat jar of dill pickle spears was a lonely package of sliced ham. Scouting around the “cheese drawer” I found a block of cheese leftover from making Fondue the previous week. OMG, stuff to make a Croque Monsieur – so here we go!
