I'm not sure where I got the idea from -- I'm pretty sure that it's not my own -- but a thought for a potentially yummy sandwich popped into my head the other evening. I tried it out today for lunch, and sure enough, I loved it. This one's going in the rotation. What is it?
-- 2 slices of thick, whole grain bread (I'm using Dark German wheat right now, the kind where the crust is studded with seeds)
-- 2 tbs cream cheese (I'm using light cream cheese, as I can't really tell the difference between it and regular)
-- 7 or 8 nice-sized strawberries, sliced.
Spread the cream cheese on both slices of bread, as you would mayo or butter or whatever. Fill the sandwich with the strawberries. Consume.
I love sandwiches, of nearly all types. I've been on a PB&J kick of late, but instead of the grape jelly that The Wife and The Daughter insist are proper for PB&J, I've been using strawberry, or raspberry, or the blueberry-rhubarb freezer jam that The Wife made some time back. I've also been doing good old tuna salad a bit. And of course there are the usual cold cuts, although I don't use those as much lately.
But yeah, the cream cheese-and-strawberry sandwich is terrific.
