One of those people...

My Lunch (yesterday and possibly today), 2010

You know those annoying people who post such frivolity as what they've eaten for lunch? I'm one of those people.

Tomato Sandwich
serves 1

2 slices of homemade whole wheat bread (w/ sesame, sunflower, flax, and pumpkin seeds)
mayo (it wasn't homemade, but it was organic and made with cage free eggs--perhaps this is also annoying)
extra sharp cheddar cheese
handful of clover sprouts
1 small ripe heirloom tomato
fleur de sel

large glass of cold milk

Slice tomato and sprinkle with fleur de sel. Reserve enough tomato to cover one slice of bread and eat the rest. Slice enough cheddar to cover one slice of bread. Toast bread. Generously smear one slice of bread with mayo. Place a nice mound of sprouts over mayo. Arrange tomato slices over sprouts. Place another mound of sprouts on top of tomato slices. Arrange cheese slices over new mound of sprouts. Top with second slice of toast. Serve with a large glass of cold milk. Eat slowly. Repeat as needed.

  1. it's not at all annoying because I know that occasionally you make your pancakes with Bisquick;)

  2. countingdandelions, Oh no, your memory is too good. I might need to whip some of those Bisquick cakes up soon.

  3. nicole, Yes yes, it is good, but post-marathon you'll need about 4 or 5 of these. Hope it went well!

  4. We're too hungry now to be annoyed. A bit sad, maybe, that you didn't make enough for two.

  5. mise, If you were here visiting me, I'd make enough for two. I'd even make two just for you.

  6. I am also one of those people, so I don't think you're annoying at all.

    Your lunch looks delicious, and you've given me the recipe for mine today.

  9. In the "food blog" world, yours is anything but frivolous. :) And who doesn't love a good sammie?

  10. That sandwich is very close to what I made for myself today. I enjoy the simplicity :^)

    Speaking of homemade bread, it's time for me to learn how...do you have any suggestions where I can learn to make good breads around here (SF or Marin)?

  14. That is entirely my kind of sandwich. You can write about it all day long, as far as I'm concerned.

  19. Considering I'm always on the lookout for new things to make, I love it when folks post things they have made (especially in such a beautiful photo). I'm all about blogging flexibility.

  21. So completely not annoying. Your words take the creation of a simple tomato sandwich and transform it into a considered, and mindful moment.

  24. Janis, I never took a course, I just watched my mother and tested recipes in books. I'm a very entry-level bread baker. I just did some quick and dirty research and it looks like the San Francisco Baking Institute has all sorts of bread baking workshops. Hopefully there is something there that suits you. Enjoy! http://www.sfbi.com/workshops.html
