It’s been three days of work travel eating. Oh such glamorous food – string cheese at the airport, peanuts and Bloody Mary mix on the plane*, Big Boy for dinner (okay the milk shakes there rock), convention center carb load and then Chick Fil A back at the airport. My body is craving food that isn’t prepackaged and requires me to do the dishes. Well, a dish and a knife.
Although I am zonked from two days of work travel it was too depressing to order in. I had an urge to cook, or at least make a sandwich. Which is what I did. Inspired by the July/August issue of Food Network Magazine’s tomato a day food calendar. Ciabatta, Irish cheddar, plum tomato, dijonaise and a little salt. It felt so good to make something myself. I highly recommend putting something simple together as a way to relax after traveling.
*We experienced a near-miss in the air (banked left 90 degrees and then climbed really damn fast, my boss saw the other plane and its jet stream) so in hindsight I probably should have ordered a real Bloody Mary.
