An Afternoon Quickie

Since I eat so much, and so often, people are always asking me what my favourite food is. That’s kind of hard to say sometimes, especially when there are so many amazing cuisines out there. It’s like asking someone “what’s your all time favourite book?” or “What’s your favourite sexual position?” Really? I think the all-encompassing answer for all three would be something like “eating sushi, while doing it doggy style and having my lover recite Edgar Alan Poe” HAHAHAHA, could you imagine??? Truth be told, I love all food, all the time, but I have a serious weakness for a really fantastic sandwich. Ohmygod. I’m drooling right now, just thinking about one. The other day I was rummaging around looking for something to take for lunch for my night shift at work, and as per usual, there was nothing. I headed off to the grocery store and picked up the following:

Spring mix
Salami
Prosciutto
Weight Watchers pita bread (a lot less carbs in these, less bulky, more room for fillings!)
Brie Cheese
Marinated olives
Mint Jalapeno Jelly

We have a small George Foreman Grill at work; can I just say one thing? That small item alone and the Magic Bullet have changed my life forever, does anyone else feel this way? I can grill ANYTHING with no fat, and then puree it into oblivion in 5 seconds! Sorry, I get sidetracked very easily, back to the food. With the grill, I made a pita sandwich at work, using basically everything I listed above, I just separated what tasted best together and made each half of the pita something a little different. The very next day, I had to have another one for lunch, so I did!

This one is the one I made at home, something simple for a great lunch, a small salad drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and a pita filled with amazing goodness.

Lunch

1 Pita, cut in half
A few slices of apple
4 slices of brie cheese, or more, if you please
Any spread of your choice; for the one above I used Jalapeno mint jelly
Prosciutto, or any protein of your choice; this would also taste so great with a grilled piece of tofu
A handful of any greens, I used spring mix for the variety

Put it on the grill, if you have one (I don’t have one at home, so I used a frying pan) and grill until the outside of the pita is a crispy golden brown, and the cheese inside has melted

This pita is so easy to make your own, try it with salami, Dijon mustard and olives; or with brie, apple, and roasted red peppers. Try out different flavours, don’t be afraid to experiment, and don’t think you have to buy super expensive ingredients either. I splurge on my cheeses and meats, but everything else I usually buy the generic store brand, it’s usually the exact same, just cheaper because it doesn’t have a fancy label on it; case and point, my balsamic is PC and my olive oil is Kirkland. You don’t have to break the bank to have a delicious meal, save that money for lingerie! Now THAT would make for an interesting love session, pita and sex….hmmmm 😉

Let’s eat to that!

I love food.  It’s no secret.  Seriously.  I may not look the part, but if you spend even just a few minutes with me, I’ll be talking about food, eating something, and I’m not going to lie, I also probably stopped listening to whatever the hell it was that you were saying as soon as I had said food placed in front of me.  I’m not a bad person, just an extremely hungry person. ha ha!  My porn of choice is food porn, it arouses the senses and awakens a hunger within, when I look at it, I can’t help but get up and cook, bake or eat something.

I’m a little harsh and rough around the edges.  I laugh loudly, love passionately and eat ferociously. I swear, make dirty jokes and flirt shamelessly.  I love my life, my friends, my family, my husband.  I am me, and it’s freakin’ fantastic.  If you can handle me as I am, then hell, grab a piece of pie, and let’s eat to that!
