BYO Sandwich

Tempeh sandwich built with love

Everyone carries around a jar of mustard, an avocado and real silverware in their purse all day and then writes about sandwiches on a Friday night, right? Glad we’re all on the same page here…

I was running late for work today (as I do) and didn’t have time to assemble a complete meal on the spot. Instead, I opted for throwing a bunch of sandwich essentials into a bag and doing the dirty work later. That’s how I came to find:

  • Two slices of bread
  • A piece of cheese
  • One avocado
  • A jar of mustard
  • Three pickles
  • A block of tempeh
  • And two tomatoes

In my purse. Don’t you even worry about it.

Assembly line

I sit outside in the same place everyday and I know the people who pass by or work nearby think I’m a straight up lunatic. Remember that time I brought corn on the cob? Exactly.

In the end, I would argue that it was better to not have my sandwich pre-assembled because that’s how bread gets soggy and no one likes soggy bread. Least of all people who eat a lot of food and enjoy doing so.

Don't worry about it.

  1. anytime that i pack my lunch for work i always bring the sandwich in parts and assemble in the kitchen when i’m ready for lunch. much better that way.

    i also chronically run late to everything and can just imagine you throwing things in your purse while thinking about your alternative mall dining options. ;)
