Soup and Sandwich RecipesPosted: February 17, 2012
TGIF! and no I don’t celebrate TGIT(thank god its thursday) anymore because I have class at 9am on friday..yuck.
But anyways I have 2 new recipes to share with you! And both are SO so easy!
First we have to talk about my favorite sandwich combination of all time
There is a coffee shop at my school called Central Perk and I pretty much lived there my freshman year of college..mainly because of one sandwich they offer called the All-in-One which has Turkey, Lettuce, Tomato, Cucumber, Avocado, Hummus, Honey Mustard, Apple, and Mozzarella Cheese
It. is. AWESOME..except they charge $10 for it! So yes about half of my savings from last year went towards these sandwiches..but the good news about this year is that I can make my own now for way cheaper..so more money to spend on coffee:)
The tomato is hiding in there somewhere..UGH this is SO good! At central perk I get the sandwich on whole wheat bread, but to switch things up I made mine on a whole wheat wrap and it was devoured
The All-in-One turkey Sandwich
- 3oz sliced turkey
- 1 whole wheat wrap, or 2 slices whole wheat bread
- 2 tomato slices
- 1/4 green apple, thinly sliced
- 3 cucumber slices
- 1/4 cup mixed greens
- 1/4 avocado, sliced
- 1 tsp honey mustard
- 1 tbsp hummus
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Instructions: Combine together in a wrap or on toasted whole wheat bread. Easy peasy
Now onto my dinner last night..Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup
I’ve decided there is no way to make soup look pretty on camera..but just trust me in saying that this soup is delicious..especially with some shredded cheese, hot sauce, and tortilla chips crumbled on top
Oh and the best part..it took me about 4 minutes to put all the ingredients in the crock pot, and 4 hours later I had soup! I may have a love affair with my crock pot..its just so great
Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup
Servings: About 6
Total Time: 4 hours (in the crock pot) 5 minutes prep time
