I work on my school’s campus, which is a two-plus hour commute from my apartment, so on the days I have to be there in the early a.m., I tend to either pack my lunch the night before or hit the Subway in the student commons. Either way, work day usually means sandwich day.
They’re kind of a miracle food. Think about it. They’re compact and easy to eat with one hand (I
read check Facebook from my phone during lunch), but you can pack in an entirely balanced meal with protein, dairy and veggies. Most kinds are easy to make the night before and throw in the fridge until lunch hour. And they’re delicious.
I don’t eat meat, so when I make them at home, I usually put a couple of different kinds of cheese on a roll with lettuce and tomato, then add mayo and, if I’m feeling adventurous, either mustard or barbecue sauce (sounds weird, but it’s good, trust). There are soy-based mock meats in the style of cold cuts, but they’re a little out of my budget, if the mediocre grocery store in my neighborhood even has them. If I hit Subway, I get either the veggie patty or that new eggplant parm. I’m going to be so sad if that latter one disappears after a limited time. It’s delicious.
So tell me all about your ‘wich crafting ways. It is lunch time, after all.
