Well, it’s my last night blogging! Today is my longest day at Great Harvest, – I work 6:45am until 7pm every Friday to finish out my 40 hours for the week. Surprisingly, this 12 hour day is less exhausting than my other days, purely because I don’t get up as early. I really enjoy getting 40 hours in 4 days and then having 3 whole days off. Of course, I still never feel like I have enough time to do other stuff.
I got home about 8pm after a brief Trader Joe’s shop and my bike ride home. Normally the wife has a fun dinner prepared (and is already into a glass of wine!), but since I’m on my own you know it’s gonna be simple. Therefore I present to you Sardine Sandwich a la Matt with Boring Broccoli!
I started by slicing a mini-loaf of Multigrain Country French in half and then broiling on both sides for 2 mins. Gotta watch my broiler closely because it can burn ‘em quick!
In the meantime I got some water boiling and chopped up a bunch of broccoli:
I just blanched them for a few minutes until they turned bright green, and then drained in a colander. I also sprayed them with just a little cold water to slow the cooking.
Here’s the sardines I used – man they’re delicious, and so cheap!
I mixed it with some mayo, mustard, black pepper, and a chopped carrot and then spread on the bread. Then sprinkle a little cheese on, and pop under the broiler for about 60 seconds.
Then I put a few pieces of lettuce on, and gave it the sandwich-smash:
Here’s hoping Kath gets home safe and soon! Of course, this means it’s the end of my KERF blogging career, but I hope you’ll still visit me at Brew and Bake some! After I finish some of the maintenance on the site (the brewing procedures and some more instructional bread posts), I plan on having more casual posting, so if you’re craving some debonair wit and dark humor you know where to find me!
