More Sandwiches Please! [Peanut Butter & Banana]

I think I forgot to mention that I got a bread machine the weekend before last. It was on sale at Williams Sonoma and Bobby and I couldn’t resist. Since then I made a couple kinds of bread from Williams Sonoma mixes – Honey Wheat and Italian Herb. I have been making a lot of these:

The one pictured is with homemade Italian Herb bread, sunflower seed butter (Maranatha), and bananas. It’s good with honey drizzled on it too, but sometimes I am just too lazy. I actually had 2 of these for dinner tonight. I had planned on making stuffed acorn squash but instead decided to be a sandwich bum.

I also saw one of the cutest graffiti ever:

Cat! Too bad it’s not fatter. That would have been the cutest.

Is there graffiti in the town where you live?

Here in NYC it is all over.

Salads Schmalads… More Sandwiches Smandmiches!

A while ago I challenged myself to stop eating salads so often. So I did. I haven’t eaten a salad for a meal since lunch on August 6th. (It was a Tuna Nicoise salad from Macaron, by the way.) Salads are great, but they don’t do so well with my stomach so even though I am the salad girl, I knew I had to take a break.

So what do people eat when they aren’t eating salads?

My first guess was sandwiches. Here are some of the fun combos I have made (or bought). My favorite is at the end.

This sandwich has Steamed Beets (my dad’s), Tofurky, mayo (lots), mustard (lots), and lettuce. The bread is some whole-grain oat nut thing I got at Whole Foods.

This one is a “Peking Style Zen Duck Wrap” (vegetarian) from Zen Palate. It was decent. It was much better dipped in my brother’s dish’s peanut sauce. It had fake duck, lettuce, carrots, and a spinach tortilla.

Hey… what are those doing there?! Those are sweet potato fries from Zen Palate as well.

Lastly, my favorite, the White Tuna Sandwich from Macaron Cafe. It has avocado, cherry tomatoes, and a homemade French mayonnaise on the most delicious whole grain bread.

I really must recreate the White Tuna Sandwich at home.

I have been having other sandwiches all week but have been too lazy to take pictures. I’m sorry! Maybe next time.

What’s your favorite sandwich of all time?

Mine is most certainly the white tuna one above.

Hot In The City: Grilled Cheese!

It is HOT in New York. HOT HOT HOT. Currently (8pm) my weather widget says:

new york weather Hot In The City: Grilled Cheese!

95 degrees F (35 C). What is the best thing to do on a hot day? Get your nails done of course! (I actually had these done yesterday, which was almost as hot.)

nails Hot In The City: Grilled Cheese!

This is a “UV manicure” which is supposed to last up to 2 weeks. We’ll just see about that. If it does I will never go back to regular manis, which only last 2 days for me. So far it hasn’t chipped, so it’s off to a good start icon wink Hot In The City: Grilled Cheese! The woman put a kind of gel on my nails that hardened; then she put on the color. I love dark nails – I always go for dark red/brown/purple, even in the summer. I think I will do purple for the wedding (it’ll be tasteful). Speaking of the wedding…

We got Bobby’s wedding band today. It’s very nice but you’ll have to wait until after the wedding to see it.

Oh, this is a food blog? Okay! Here is my lunch:

It’s a grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes. I put it in Mr. George Foreman before I left for work. It was a li’l soggy by lunchtime but still yummy.

I made Bobby a similar sandwich this weekend – just grilled chicken (love you, George) with tomato; sauces were mayonnaise and teriyaki sauce… (same bread and tomato as mine):

Was it hot where you live? What did you do to beat the heat?
