Two-fer Sammies

Hello! It's Saturday, and you you know what that means! Well, maybe you don't, but for me, that means sammies! I get excited about it :)

This week I have another two-fer for ya. Everyone agreed that fresh figs are the BOMB, so I just wanted to share an award-winning (yes, I'm the judge and I give my food awards) combo that has been making an appearance at my breakfast table--open face whole wheat bagel with whipped cream cheese, sliced figs and gooey honey drizzle...

My picture turned out kind of blurry and blah, so I jazzed it up a little in photo shop. I think this image much better represents the symphony of flavor going on in this bite. Yum.

This next idea comes straight from Sophia of Burp n Slurp. Thanks girl, this one was rockin!
Whole grain toast spread with laughing cow and pumpkin, topped with ham and eventually crowned with a little brown sugar pecan mustard.

Although Sophia suggested it with cottage cheese, I was trying to branch out a little the day I ate this--I think I had already had some sort of CCC twice at that point!

This sandwich was really good and certainly warrants a repeat! I am so used to eating pumpkin in sweet combination, that I was a little weary of trying it in a savory sandwich, but this rocked! I loved how the pumpkin added a whole different dimension of flavor to the standard ham and cheese.Obviously, I will be preparing this a l'original with cottage cheese sometime soon :)

I thought it would be funny to post his and hers plates.
I'll give you a hint--the one with the open bag of Doritos is NOT mine! Ha ha.

As you can see, I try to "sneak" veggies onto D's plate. I figure if I put them on there for him, he'll eat them up. Usually I am right. So he's got a lovely grilled ham and cheese sandwich with a side of carrots and featured on my plate is a pile of delectable veggies and hummus with a side of sandwich.

Hope you all are having a great weekend! xoxo


  1. What an interesting sandwich!! It sounds delicious though!

  2. hee hee hee! I'm so proud of myself! Yay!! I'm glad you liked it! I think LC is also AWESOME. It might even be better, what with that tangyness. yum~

  3. Ooo! Looks super yummy! The pumpkin-ham combo intrigues me. So, I haven't come up with a clever (read: poetic) comment for your last post. But I loved it! (And I loved the noodles. Thanks for taking care of me, sis.)

  4. I try to sneak veggies into my boyfriend's meals too. Sometimes it backfires though. Last time I made him breakfast, I snuck spinach in his omelette. He was horrified by the green stuff inside! Took him twice as long to eat because he had to pick every litte peice out :P

    I celebrated an unpictured Sammie Saturday! I had a egg and cheese english muffin at work :)

  5. I've never had a fig before but your sandwich combinations certainly look award winning!! I love the comparison of boy v. girl plates!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend :)

  6. the figs look so majestic! as well they should :)

  7. I love the his and hers plates! Mallard has embraced SOME vegetables and he has switched to junk-free cereal and organic milk... But, he ate a Red Baron pizza for dinner last night lol

  8. Ooooh...figs! And with honey too. Wow!
