The key to my heart is through my mouth in the form of scrumptious breakfast sandwiches. Rarely have I met a bacon, egg and cheese that I didn’t like, but some breakfast sandwiches are certainly superior both in taste and in creativity. Recently, I’ve been devouring the Egg & Cheese from Spreads Sandwich Shop, which consists of over-easy organic cage free egg, avocado, black bean chipotle hummus, monterey jack cheese and tortilla chips on a brioche bun. SIGN ME UP, and while you’re at it, find me a gown because I’m about to marry that sandwich. Here are 10 other brekky sammies that will make you drool.
It’s 65 degrees out in Chicago, and that means it’s STEW SEASON! I get really excited about stew because of the variety of accoutrements you can eat with it — rice, couscous, chips, crackers, bread, potatoes. Plus it’s basically thick soup, which is the best kind of soup, with a lot of meat in it, which is something I really like to accomplish with my meals. Plus, every single culture in the world (OK, I’m speculating, but I don’t think it’s a bad speculation) has some kind of stew, which means that stew can be a culinary adventure!
You can make these on the stove, but let’s be real, guys, one of the great things about stew is that if you happen to have a slow-cooker, you are in for a delicious-smelling home all day. More bonuses: Make a big batch, get some tupperware, and freeze portions of stew, and you have lunch for weeks. Get it in your mouth and let it make you feel all cozy!
