Fine, this grudge is a little more childish than feminist. But whatever.
So the moment I began grocery shopping for my apartment, the last thing I wanted to buy was bread. I wouldn't give in to making sandwiches, because to me it seemed like the easy way out. I was oooooobviously better than that.
I'm sure you can guess, it didn't take long for my childish pride got a dose of reality. Long story short, I was wrong and stupid.
So on my second trip to Trader Joes, I made a beeline straight for the bread section. At this point, I am willing to put anything edible between two slices of bread and call it gourmet. Cooking between classes is not easy!
I am trying my best to shy away from my usual pb&j sandwich (favorite. sandwich. ever) though and make sandwiches that are more substantive, by buying frozen veggie patties instead of jelly.
Morning Star veggie patties are delicious and easy to make. I tried them for the first time last semester at a bbq, and had them again this summer at a 4th of July party. Yumyumyums!
Coupled with hummus and some greens, and this sandwich is pretty darn tasty. You can't even tell it isn't meat (but I might just be biased).
I plan on making these sandwiches and bringing them to class next week. We'll see how they hold up in my backpack at school and how good they taste microwaved.
Willingness to make again: 10
1. Slightly fried my bread to give it some crunch, but it isn't super necessary and probably won't do it next time.
