A Deliciously Light & Simple Sandwich

Hi there all! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We are in the midst of getting more snow today... Yippee. I realize that as I get older the fun of a snow day is dwindling. I find myself worrying more and more since the Hubby has to drive in the mess all day long.

On another note, I am doing my best to navigate this new land of unemployment. I trying to keep myself busy by working on my resume and portfolio, searching the internet for a job, redecorating the house, and (this is the fun part of staying home) crafting. 

I also get to spend some time on my other love... cooking. Which was sometimes hard to do while working a full-time job. I typically stuck with recipes that are old favorites because experimenting after a long day of work was hard, especially if we wanted to eat before 8 pm. 

On Friday with my new found freedom I tried a new recipe for a great vegetarian sandwich. 
Avocado, Tomato & Swiss Melt (Oh my word it was soooo yummy!). Here is how you can make one for yourself.

  • 2 Slices of Bread, Toasted 
  • Spread of your choosing, I used Honey Mustard 
  • 1/2 Avocado, Mashed 
  • 4 Slices of Tomato 
  • 2 Thin Slices of Swiss Cheese 
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 

Set the oven/toaster oven to broil. 

Place the toast onto a baking sheet, spread each side with honey mustard and divide the mashed avocado atop each piece.

Next place 2 sliced tomatoes on each side. Salt and pepper to taste. Top each piece with the swiss cheese. 

Place under the broiler until the cheese is nice and melty. 

Carefully remove from the oven and place one half of the sandwich on top of the other. 
Cut and ENJOY! 

This is my new favorite sandwich, I am certainly making this one again! 
I would love to hear what is your favorite (or go to) sandwich?

Happy Monday!


  1. We had several inches of snow here in central Illinois, but the worse part was the wind last evening which produces blowing snow. Good luck on the job hunt, but I'm glad you're able to enjoy some TIME for awhile. Delicious looking sandwich.

    1. We had the wind also, simply terrible and the cold temps.... brrrr. We are in the single digits.
