Yummy Hints is something I used to occasionally do to share some of the tasty treats that seem like no brainers to me but come to find out others hadn’t thought of to try. If you have some of your own, I’d love to hear about the little things you do to your food to make it a little more tasty. If you want to see more, click here.
Sometimes food just gets boring – especially food you eat on a regular basis. I’m sort of in a rut right now with my work lunch consisting of either left overs, soup and crackers or some sort of sandwich. Since it’s still Lent , I can’t enjoy my mostly favorite sandwiches of turkey, Gouda and spicy peanut sauce or peanut butter and jelly on a waffle (which, let’s be honest are the ones I really want right now anyhow)
Yes, I could in theory come up with new ideas, but mornings are rough on my creativity and after I’ve eaten dinner at night, I don’t want to think about lunch the next day so I do what’s easy.
What’s a girl to do to jazz up her ham and provolone on a sandwich thing with spicy mustard? Sounds spicy, right? Sounds boring too right now. To get rid of the boring today, I tossed it in the microwave for 20 seconds. Easy Peasy.
It’s something I often do, apply quick heat to something I’m getting a little bored with, it changes the texture and mixes the flavors a little (slightly melted cheese, a little extra salt flavor mixed in the mustard, softer bread) the slight change in texture and flavor makes a big impact in my book and with my taste buds.
How would you snazz up a boring old ham and provolone sandwich?
