We eat a lot of sandwiches for lunch around here. And we don’t mind it one bit.
Especially when there are fresh tomato and cucumbers from the garden. That’s a Yellow Jubilee tucked between those slices of whole grain bread. Along with a bit of organic ham and lettuce (which I had to purchase from the store because it’s entirely too hot for growing lettuce around here), this is my favorite lunchtime treat. I usually pull out all the stuff and let my kids build their own. There’s almost always cheese involved. I would have a slice on my own sandwich, but the little people enjoyed the last two pieces on their sandwiches.
Some days, I make bacon and eggs for a change of pace, and we have BLT’s or bacon and egg sandwiches. Some days we’re in the mood for simple peanut butter and jelly. Each of us prefers a different jam or jelly. I’m a blackberry jam kind of girl, while my son loves apple jelly, and my daughter simply must have strawberry jam. There are also days when we get a little crazy and have tuna or chicken salad sandwiches. Sandwiches are a staple on my lunchtime table, especially during busy canning and gardening days. And we don’t mind it one bit.
