It’s not the most summery refreshing meal I could have chosen to make every night this week, but it’s so tasty I was willing to overlook that seasonal flaw. It works best with sourdough bread - it’s thick enough that the spread doesn’t make it soggy - but your favorite whole wheat bread will taste juuuuuust fine (probably). 

Ingredients:

¼ red bell pepper
⅓ zucchini (sliced thinly)
¼ cup artichoke hearts, marinated 
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 slices tomato
2 tbsp tomato basil goat cheese (Boursin)
2 slices sourdough bread 
Cooking spray
Salt & Pepper 

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, toss together the bell pepper, zucchini slices, artichoke hearts, a splash of artichoke marinade, balsamic vinegar, and a pinch of salt & pepper. Mix until vegetables are covered in balsamic vinegar. Place vegetables on baking sheet lined with tin foil and roast for 20 minutes in the oven.

When vegetables are almost done (after about 15 minutes) spray a medium pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Spread both slices of bread with 1 tbsp goat cheese spread and start to grill the bread in the pan. Remove vegetables and lay on bread: zucchini, artichoke hearts, sliced tomato, bell pepper (in the order from bottom to top). Top with the other slice of bread and continue to grill until bread is golden brown and crunchy.

Tuna Salad Sandwich w. Guacamole, Salsa, & Chopped Onions


i can only laugh when i look back at what i’ve posted since the semester started and pretty much every recipe is made up by looking at what i happen to have in my refrigerator that day. and today i happened to find some cans of tuna i had forgotten about, a packet of wholly guacamole (that i’ll assume is still good because it smelled fine), a jar of salsa that may or may not be my roommates, half an onion leftover from the skinny joes recipe, and romaine lettuce that is definitely still good. oh and chopped garlic that i put in everything to add some umf 

Mexican Tuna Salad


1 can tuna 
1 1/2 tbsp guacamole or mashed avocado
1/2 tbsp salsa

Made for a delicious and filling vegetarian sandwich

quintessential afternoon of a poor college student: turkey sandwich and and an ikea catalog that holds my future bedroom in it’s beautiful pages (as i have currently only a mattress and some boxes) 

i’m considering aspelund or hemnes 

California Pizza Kitchen: Vegetable Sandwich

Yummy yummy yummy. The bread, though, is a little on the unhealthy side so I’d suggest eating it open-faced or wrapping up half to go since its quite filling

But definitely a new favorite in the menu

Egg White Sandwich w. Sundried Tomatoes and Feta

egg white breakfast sandwich w. sundried tomatoes and feta

Sunday: breakfast at 2:30 pm. I made myself hold off all morning for this sandwich so I could get to the grocery store after mass. Worth it. I made the sandwich for my friends too and they approved. So… Making this again…

i just can’t wait to be back in my kitchen at home.
pretty much every night i end up in my boyfriend’s apartment cooking veggies in a pan with some teriyaki sauce, which surprisingly hasn’t gotten old yet, but i miss being able to whip up something tasty from all the fresh ingredients we have at home.

oh well… one more month. then hopefully i’ll be in an apartment next year.
but seriously, isn’t it so much easier to eat healthy in your own well-stocked kitchen

Turkey Sandwich on sourdough w. pesto, mozzarella, spinach, and red onion

i’m at my boyfriend’s family’s house in Kansas for Easter and it’s been beyond wonderful having a cute kitchen to cook in. Thus far I have cooked a grand total of two things: poached eggs on toast & this sandwich. 

but basically this sandwich was delicious and I’m glad i decided to try to work some lean meats back into my diet 


#1 FAVORITE: Veggie Sandwich - cheap, light, delicious, refreshing … shall I go on?

#2 Turkey Tom - if you MUST eat meat, go for turkey. it’s lean and a good source of protein. opt for mustard instead of mayonnaise

Fig, Caramelized Onion, Pear, and Mozzarella Panini

this was so good! but i think next time i’m going to use goat cheese and apples instead of mozzarella and pears
