I loved all the sweet comments on our anniversary post from yesterday. 2 years down, and a lifetime more to go 🙂
Unfortunately I wasn’t feeling 100% yesterday. I tried to shake the icky feeling by staying busy and even made it to the gym. I thought some movement might help, and I ellipticalled for 35 minutes. Proof:
It felt good, but still I felt off the whole day. I wasn’t up for going out to celebrate, so I decided to take an easy route and celebrate with sandwiches.
I sliced up topping options: tomatoes, green peppers, onions, spinach, hummus, goat cheese, cheddar cheese, turkey (for him), grey poupon and freshly baked (by someone else) sourdough bread. I have a slight obsession with sourdough. Delicious!
I always seem to forget what a fabulous dinner make-you-own sandwiches make, and Hubbs was more than happy to celebrate at home.
I got to work on constructing my masterpiece. Starting with 2 toasted slices of sour dough. I loaded one side with goat cheese while it was still hot so it would get melty ::crucial::.
Then came the veggies.
More veggies and a schmear of hummus.
And (ta-da!) dinner was ready! And placed next to a beautiful rose from my sweet Hubbs.
We enjoyed our creations on the newly stained back deck.
Where we watched the sun sink low.
A few other special touches made the evening a perfect 2 year celebration.
And before I forget, we have the apron winner!!
Congratulations to RAWKINMOM!

That sounds like such a fun way to spend your anniversary! I love making huge sandwiches with veggies piled high.. so good.

I’m guessing that’s the view from your backyard deck? It’s so beautiful!
Thanks! We lucked out with our view- I love it.
So sorry you weren’t feeling well for your anniversary! 🙁
I think really good sourdough is one of my all-time favorite breads. So delicious and adds so much to sandwiches.
The last picture of you is beautiful!

The picture of you with the sun setting low is gorgeous!
My fave homemade sandwich is some ciabatta bread, goat cheese, roasted eggplant and roasted red pepper. Good stuff 🙂
Oh I love ciabatta bread!!
Stunning view…a bit jealous! Your sandwich sounds soo good, I must get some sourdough!

Awe that’s so sweet. Sometimes I prefer staying in too.
I am loving hummus sandwiches lately too. Hummus, veggies and loads of pickles or pepperoncini (banana peppers?) on thick grainy bread. Yum!
Your sandwich looked so good and I love the last pic of you it is beautiful. I was wondering if you had a particular brand of goat cheese you could recommend. There are several different ones at the store and since I have never bought goat cheese before I wondered if you could suggest one.
Hm.. I’m not sure of the brand, but I prefer the logs to crumbled.
Actually, I just looked it up- I like this brand!
Parita @ myinnershakti says
Yum! Your sandwich sounds amazing! My favorite go to sandwich at home is an avocado and tomato grilled cheese. 🙂
Nicole, RD says
Grilled cheese or anything with fruit and a stinky cheese on some good bread 🙂 Happy belated anniversary! My 2 year is later this month on the 23rd 🙂
Aren’t May weddings the best?! Happy anniversary to you 🙂
Caree @ Fit-Mama says
congrats on 2 years!! and your sandwhiches look awesome!!
YAY for baby bellies! I love getting to that point where there is no denying that I am pregnant. I tried to respond to your comments on my blog the last few times and I can’t respond to you 🙁 That sandwich looks AMAZING! Where do you get your cheese. I haven’t had good soft cheese since I got pregnant. I get freaked out about whether it is pasteurized or not. Have a great day 🙂
Lovely photo of you at the end of your post 🙂
My fav sandwich is turkey and havarti with spinach on a ancient grain bread then toasted in my griddler, mmmmm!
Jenny (Fit Girl Foodie) says
Wow your sammie looks delicious. And what a cute pic of you at the end 🙂
Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean says
i love yellow roses!!! so pretty. hope you’re back to 100% soon.
Heather @ kissmybroccoli says
Mmm! The make-your-own sandwich is entirely underrated. Sooo good, especially with a good dollop of hummus! I’m a bit obsessed with sourdough too…I swear it makes the perfect sandwich bread!
LOVE that last picture! Gorgeous!
