Chloe Likes To Eat

I'm quite regimented about what I eat and when during the week. I have porridge or homemade (peanut butter) Granola for breakfast when I arrive at work each morning at 0800, I tend to snack on fruit, carrots, almonds, crackers and the contents of a graze box intermittently from 1100 to 1600, and T & I usually eat a main meal that I make at around 2000. All sounds very dull I'm sure, but it works for us. The weekends though, slightly different. No leaping out of bed, no timetable dictated by meetings or my ringing phone and often, no cycle at either end of my day to factor in. This often means the Saturday Sandwich comes into play.

The Saturday Sandwich is usually concocted at around 1500, for me it usually contains something meat, something warm, and I'll be honest here- it's not necessarily designed with health benefits in mind.

 Read it and weep.

They're not always photogenic food, but when I squidged down the top on this, I took a step back to admire my work before shoving it into my face. So what's in my work of wonder?!

Bread- my very own a mix of 5:1 wholemeal:white flour, super filling but not too weighty. Warmed up, naturally.
Salsa- another of my very own, smoked paprika, fine diced red pepper, a half teaspoon of super strength chilli jam, tomato purée and tomato ketchup- just the right balance of sweet, smoke and spice.
Fried Egg- Shake of pepper, half pinch of salt, what else can I say, just look a that yolk.
Gammon- Slow cooked in apple juice with whole peppercorns, juniper berries and cloves. 'Nuff said I suppose.
Cream cheese- I didn't it needed butter and a little smear of sharpness is just right to cut through it all.

So c'mon- hit me up with your weekend food? Do you have an equivalent to my Saturday Sandwich, or can you beat it?
