Not Your Average BLT

So, I like a good sandwich every now and again. Subway is a weakness. OMM is that place GOOD! But yesterday, I was hungry for a BLT, and well, this is what I came up with.

You Need:
2 slices of good wheat bread
1 piece of cheddar cheese
A couple of slices of deli ham
4 slices of microwave bacon
5 cherry or grape tomatoes sliced in half, length wise, not width wise
A few onion slices
A handful of spinach
Ranch dressing
Dried oregano
Dried basil
Small frying pan

1. Heat the frying pan over medium heat
2. Butter one piece of bread and lay it in the pan. Add your cheese and ham and top with the other slice of bread.
3. Butter the top piece of bread.
4. Let the first side cook for a bit and then flip
5. Let the other side cook for a few minutes, and remove from the pan
6. Add some EVOO to your pan and add the onions. Let cook till translucent.
7. Cook the bacon in the microwave according to the directions on the box
8. Place on top of the ham
9. Add the onions on top of the bacon
10. Add the tomatoes on top of the onions
11. Add the spinach
12. Add the ranch
13. Shake on some salt, pepper, oregano, and basil
14. Close the sandwich and slice to your preference
15. ENJOY!

It's really good paired with some wheat crackers and a Diet Dr Pepper (which, is what I paired it with. LOL)

Enjoy y'all!

I know it doesn't look real pretty. But it's SO GOOD!

Enjoy! :)

Till next time,
Happy Eating!

Vanilla Cinnamon Coffee

Ok, so it's been forever and a day since I've updated this. My apologies. Things have been interesting around here, and I haven't had any new recipes for a long while. Unfortunately, I have no pictures for this one. But it's my favorite way to drink coffee, especially if I don't have any of the flavored creamer stuff, and this is way cheaper too. Especially since most of the ingredients are just hanging around in your pantries.

So...He is the recipe!

You Need:
Milk or Cream (but if you want to use non-dairy creamer, go right ahead, but it tastes better with milk or cream)
Vanilla extract
Splenda or your preferred sweetener

What you do:
1.Pour yourself a cup of coffee
2. Add just a little bit of your dairy product
3. Add a cap full of vanilla into the coffee
4. Add the amount of sweetener you like, I usually add 2 packets of Splenda
5. Add just a pinch of cinnamon, not too much, otherwise it'll overpower the drink.
6. Stir together
7. Enjoy!

Note that this drink can be enjoyed hot or cold, if you want it cold, just pour over ice!

Until next time,
Happy Eating!
