This city deserves a better class of turkey sandwich…

To be perfectly honest, I don’t usually like sandwiches (yes, I know that’s weird).  But I’m working full-time at an unpaid job, so packing a lunch became a necessity, and I am without the lovely thermos that I used in school to bring myself tasty leftovers. It seemed that some creative thinking was in order.  After a few sad days of PB&J and a chat with my housemate, I discovered an easy addition to a basic turkey and cheese sandwich to make it wonderful: Pesto!  I just take my slices of bread (I’m a big fan of Trader Joe’s Tuscan Pane, a nice all-purpose sourdough), and plop on a few slices of turkey and cheese (provolone, brie, and havarti have all worked nicely for this).  Then, on the top slice of bread, I spread on a teensy bit of mayo, and a spoonful of pesto.  Delicious!

  1. Em,

    My totally absolute favouritest sandwich in the world ever is basil pesto on oen slice of ciabatta/baguette, sundried tomato pesto on the other (all ingredients the same, just replace basil with sundried tomatos), a slice or two extra of parmesan and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

    Hm, that sounds really swish actually. And I am craving it right now.
