Food Inspiration, Lunch

a little bit of sunshine

May 12, 2012

After 3 weeks of rain the sun is finally out, second day in a row. I’m telling you, it’s great! The only other thing I’d like now are temperatures above 15°C. That would make me a very happy girl 🙂

I took the first picture a couple of days ago (through my window), the other picture last night. What a difference a little sunshine makes!

Today I am back with some food inspiration. I’ve been eating lots of sandwich lunches lately since they’re prepared in no time at all. Apart from the PB&J sandwich I shared yesterday these are my new favorites.

My Caprese French Toast is an “homage” to my favorite summer dinner, Caprese. We often spend the summer days by the lake and when we come home my mom makes Caprese at least once or twice a week for dinner. Mozzarella, home-grown tomatoes, home-grown basil and olive oil/balsamic vinegar simply is a winning combination. I combined all these flavors in two slices of wholemeal toast that I dunked into egg whites. A slather of pesto, tomatoes and mozzarella is all you need. After cooking it 2-3 minutes per side in a skillet you have an amazingly rich-in-flavor lunch.

Another delicious lunch was this Avocado Sandwich with home-made guacamole.

I never buy guacamole at the store but prefer to make it myself, just the way I like it. 1 avocado, lime juice (from 1/2 lime), salt and pepper. I added some Gruyere into my sandwich and had asparagus on the side. I just can’t get enough!

What have you guys been loving lately?

Apart from eating asparagus I’ve been drinking lots of chocolate soy milk, eating bananas with almond butter and Greek yoghurt with strawberry jam. Not all at once, of course!


Don’t forget that tomorrow is Mother’s Day! And if you’re in the UK (or any other country that’s already celebrated) call your mom anyways and tell her how much you love her. I’m sure she won’t mind! Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms!

    Yay, glad the sun finally came out! We’ve had warm and sunny weather the past few days but we had a bad thunderstorm last night. It’s getting colder again, here where I live. 🙁

    I agree! Sandwiches make a great and quick meal! I dont have many plans for the weekend.. except study and do homework. Ohh, I’ll be so happy when I’m done with all my exams! 😀 I’ll probably do a little happy dance! 😀

    I hope you have a great and blessed weekend!

    Sunshine is wonderful. It was rainy, cold and damp for nearly 10 days here and finally, the sun and nice weather came out to play this weekend. 🙂
