Sandwich night

No actual menu tonight; instead we had a sandwich bar kind of thing. I set out the following:
  • whole-grain bread
  • whole-wheat sub rolls
  • sesame hamburger buns
  • honey ham
  • two kinds of turkey (oven roasted and mesquite)(this is all prepared lunchmeat, by the way -- I didn't COOK a turkey, much less two of them and a ham!)
  • American cheese slices
  • shredded cheddar (hey, it's what we had)
  • cooked bacon (two slices per person)
  • sliced tomatoes
  • fresh basil leaves in lieu of salad greens
  • sliced avocado
  • condiments (mayo, two kinds of mustard, ketchup because DH insists, etc.)
I had a sub roll with mayo, brown mustard, mesquite turkey, shredded cheddar, bacon, tomatoes, basil and avocado and I may not eat again for a week. Damn, I'm stuffed!

The boy had a peanut butter sandwich on whole-grain bread and two slices of bacon. Oy. He was excused from needing a fruit/veg because he ate a whole can of pears (in juice, not syrup) before dinner.

The girl had a sesame bun with bacon and American cheese. And some raw baby carrots.

I have no idea what DH ate except that it was on a sesame bun and probably involved ham since he's allergic to turkey.

I usually do sandwich night when I don't feel like cooking. Although by the time you get everything out and slice the veggies and whatnot and then put it all away again, it's almost as much work as a full meal!

a whole can of pears?
did he spend the rest of the evening in the bathroom? eesh!

i've been eating bacon, tomato, and avocado sandwiches for breakfast for several weeks now. avocadoes must be in season somewhere, because they are cheap as hell right now here. so i have to eat them while they last! but after a sandwich like that, I don't need to eat again till dinner!

Please tell me that your husband doesn't put ketchup on a sandwich. Even if he does, tell me that he doesn't.
