This post contains a week’s worth of wrap up – not just the sandwich – but the sandwich was awesome so it stole the title. Maybe I’ll make a thing of it and start titling all of my weekly posts after the best bite?
Our very last cup of chicory coffee from Café du Monde. <– boo! With a mandarin. I spilled the 2nd to very last cup all over the counter and down the side of the fridge, so that was fun.
More chicory coffee, in yogurt form. With KIND maple quinoa granola and chocolate-covered cacao nibs. Plus a Pacific Rose apple.
The best chips of all time – honey butter flavored from Trader Joe’s. Excluding, obviously, the freshly made honey butter chips served at Oiji.
Another Trader Joe’s win – Kona coffee cookie mocha swirl ice cream.
Homemade treats make the best snacks though. I threw a wedding shower for one of the ladies at work this week and contributed cookie butter bars and brown butter chocolate chip cookies.
The eponymous sandwich!
Served with roasted brussel sprouts with paprika and Old Bay seasoning – to keep the seafood theme going.
Toasted sourdough with crab rangoon in between. The filling was a mixture of cream cheese, lump crab meat, green onion, minced ginger, brown sugar, and soy sauce. They were wonderful.
I loosely followed the recipe for Eat, Live, Run’s lemon brown sugar chicken.
I added sliced green onions to the casserole dish and used extra smoked paprika, but primarily I swapped in MAPLE sugar for brown sugar. Delicious. We spooned the sauce on top of our veggies.
Another night I loosely followed the recipe for Bon Appétit’s marinated beans. Great northern beans with evoo, rice vinegar, cilantro, green onion, and gojuchang. I served the beans on top of roasted green beans and sweet potato fries.
With a sour beer on the side.
I work the next five days, but I hope everyone else has a lovely weekend!
