Giving into Sandwiches with Morningstar

There was a fierce, stubborn feistiness in me that once had a grudge against sandwiches. Women in the kitchen, making men their sandwiches? Urgh, no thank you.  I also always felt that sandwiches were totally over rated (unless it's from IKES!!)
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.

Difficulty: 2
Willingness to make again: 10
Over-all: 8
1. Slightly fried my bread to give it some crunch, but it isn't super necessary and probably won't do it next time.
