Some bloggers have their dinner posts up before I even eat dinner, how do they do it?!? We’re on a pretty late schedule here, but it works well for us.
That Paula Red apple was mealy and sad, I traded it off to the husband (he liked it!). Instead I ate a Crispin apple with a spoonful of peanut butter.
My night class got out super early today, and I completed the online quiz and walked home all before 7; score! I celebrated with a small piece of pumpkin chocolate chip square.
Btw – the husband has demolished these bars, almost all of them are gone! He took a container to school today and said all of his classmates freaked out about them as well.
Now, on to sandwich week……
Since it’s already Tuesday into the week, I decided to start things off with a bang. What’s that?
Oh, nothing. Just homemade from scratch mayonnaise!
It took team work, and more time than predicted, but in the end we were victorious; go us! I used the recipe from Katherine Darling’s Under the Table – which is an amazing book in general, I highly recommend it – but you could easily Google a recipe.
The sandwich vehicle for the mayo was Buffalo chicken subs, which came together in a snap.
I slow-cooked chicken breasts in a bit of broth for 8hours on low today and then shredded the meat with two forks. Then I doused two servings worth in Buffalo sauce. Next we stirred crumbled blue cheese into two portions of mayo. Finally we spooned and spread that fantasticness onto split rolls. Perfection.
Seriously, I can’t even handle this picture.
This was way healthier than a fried chicken sandwich and much much tastier! Speaking of health, as I told Adam – “I dont’ care that we forgot the asparagus, I’ll be damned if I’m serving blue cheese and mayo but no veggie!” So we made a quick side of microwaved kale.
Very, very not good. But I choked it down for the nutrients.
All together, even with bitter, chewy kale, the meal averaged out to be fantastic.
A fabulous start to Sandwich Week.
Do you eat mayo or does it skeeve you out? Have you ever made your own mayo? In general I’m not a big fan; I’ll eat Miracle Whip in tuna and chicken salads, but I prefer mustard varieties. I was pretty jazzed about it tonight though 🙂
