Sandwich Day

It started this morning with Kevin. I toasted the apple bread I made yesterday for his morning breakfast. Out of the blue he wants a toasted ham and cheese on apple bread. Hummmm. Sounded pretty good to me. I've made apple and peanut butter sandwiches on waffles before. This could be good too.

I used real butter on both sides of the bread, tavern ham, and chedder cheese. Kevin had two sandwiches and Bob, later, had one too.

Bob stayed home from the office today because he's traveling tomorrow. I coerced him into being lazy yesterday so we ran around like crazy today. After running around doing some errands, earlier in the morning, we raced home for lunch around 1pm. I was STARVING. I had just bought baby spinach and a few small eggplant a couple of days before at the grocery store and knew there was some way to use them at lunch today. I was craving eggplant chips again and wondered how to use them this time around. Again, I roasted them, sliced very thin, in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes, swooshed in olive oil and salt and pepper. I smell another sandwich!

I made a vinaigrette dressing from equal parts (1 1/2 tbs.) balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard, 1 tbs. fresh chopped oregano, 1 tsp. fresh ground pepper, and 1 tsp. fresh chopped garlic. I whisked olive oil into the mixture until thick (1/4 cup).

I then stuffed whole wheat pita's with baby spinach, tomatoes, and the eggplant chips. I drizzled in the dressing and Yum!
