anatomy of a sandwich

i’m not really a sandwich person. i like them, but i’ll rarely order one when i’m out (unless it’s from here or, don’t laugh, here) because i’m so overwhelmed by the 8,963 options and add-ons that i all too often end up with a turkey sandwich, no mayo, sprouts, maybe avocado if i’m feeling adventurous. oh, and pickles too. aren’t i just a party and a half?
today, as i was dragging a 10-pound watermelon home from the market down the street (seriously the best arm workout, and only $1.72!), i was hit with a craving for a simple yet awesome sandwich. simple meaning five ingredients tops, awesome meaning… awesome. the star ingredient? a jar of fig jam i picked up the day before. i have big plans for this jam… i just don’t know what they are yet.
the cast of characters:
fig jam, laughing cow cheese, crusty wheat roll from here, sea salt, baby arugula. and my cutting board, which has seen better days.
the finished product. well, almost finished. clearly i was hungry. dragging watermelon babies up hills and strategically arranging arugula leaves will do that to you. the olive guy on my plate understands.
what’s your favorite sandwich? i’d love to hear! 🙂
