But back to the cooked sandwich....
Really it's about having a nasty cold and needing to eat something, but having no appetite.
I had no appetite, but I did have a jar of honey mustard, so in the hopes that the bite of the mustard would do something to clear the sinuses, I did a riff on a summer favorite.
I had some cooked chicken breast, so I slathered it with honey mustard and then heaped lettuce on top. I put that in the oven for about ten minutes sealed up in it's foil packet.
|The lettuce wilts a bit as it cooks.|
The first time I made this was on a baguette and it was definitely better. The second time was on low salt mini-pitas. Still good, but lacking that satisfying crunch.
The first time, I sliced oranges on top of the chicken and lettuce on the baguette. That remains my favorite way to enjoy this. However, I was experimenting the second time around, so I tried adding butternut squash and some pomegranate arils. They made a nice variation.
And now to the happy part - my favorite part of decorating for the holidays is greens with little white lights. Is anyone surprised that my fireplace is filled with books?? Hubby's idea.
