Two Sandwiches

I got home at 8:30 pm tonight and was famished. I had picked up some pea shoots at the co-op, but wasn't sure what to make with them. I had to harvest the day's strawberries before dark, so it was around 9pm when I started thinking about what I was going to make for a very late dinner.

Like any tired, hungry foodie, I googled "pea shoots" to figure out what I should make. And imagine my delight when I found a recipe that not only used my pea shoots and freshly picked strawberries, but also called only for ingredients that were locally produced and already in my fridge!

So my first sandwich was the Strawberry and Pea Shoot Sandwich.I did add a little Tofutti cream cheeze with the jalapeƱo jelly, because that's just such a rockin' good combination.

Second sandwich (because I needed some protein) was a tempeh salad sandwich. While I didn't have any locally made tempeh, all of the herbs, onion, lettuce, and bread is from MN or my backyard.

I'd like to say that I saved one of those sandwiches for my lunch tomorrow or shared that plate with a friend, but I didn't. I ate the whole darn thing and it was amazing.

Sandwiches make for such a good comfort meal... I like them so much that it feels as if they were bad for me, hehe, but they aren't. My admiration for being able to actually "cook" something while hungry :-)

I would have never thought to put strawberries on a sandwich, but it looks delicious!

The only thing better than one sandwich for dinner is two. Strawberry and pea shoots seems like an odd combination to me though, glad you enjoyed it!
