A sandwich that tastes like new laptop (Lunch recipe)

SAM_0624

Looking past some of my previous blog posts I made the shocking observation that there’s a serious lack of sandwiches. Like really. My last post on this stems from more than three months ago. Yikes.

So here finally goes. A simple one. I had something like this the day I had just bought my new laptop, and because of the lack of WiFi at my old place, I went into Starbucks t0 use theirs and to install some stuff and look all cool and edgy and awesome sitting with mah new laptop in Starbucks yo. I ordered some tropical juice and this roll and since then it has become one of my absolute faves. Feeling on top of the world with my new buy probs added to that also. A bit.

What?

Making this sandwich at home I opted for an Italian-ish seedy baguetty thing, but any bread will do. I mixed half a cut up red chilli pepper and some black pepper with 2/3 spoons of cream cheese and spread this out over the sandwich. Throw some smoked salmon on top and and add a tiny bit of lemon juice.

I really enjoy the spicyness of this.

Now you’re good to go for a whole afternoon of downloading Friends and Downton Abbey, signing up for Netflix and having a panic attacks thinking you might have broken your new laptop already. Or you know, whatever you had planned that day.

For the sake of lunch and vitamins I cut up some tiny tomatoes of various colours and mixed them with a tiny spoon of pesto genovese. Those tomatoes that look like they just went over to the Dark side are called dark plum tomatoes. I didn’t know that until I saw a punnet of these in Lidl.
What a lovely story. Thanks.
