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:
Finally, I put some tamari and sriracha on the broccoli, and served with a Magic Hat Lucky Kat (to give Kath luck, and for her parents’ cat Lillis!). Read my review here!
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!
