Part II

April Highlights Part I

March 28, 2012: Meatballs get a second chance and become patties 

I hadn’t planned to try the Bon Appetit chicken meatballs again. Since I wasn’t happy with the execution of the sandwich itself, I assumed my lunchers would be as well. Turns out they didn’t care…so I got a chance to redeem myself, and redeem myself I did.

This time though, the meatballs became patties. And this time I had time to melt the cheese and place the onions INSIDE two layers of provolone. One last thing, this time I used spicy chipotle mayonaise with regular mayonaise for a little kick. James suggested that one. 

Sandwich: Ground chicken breast, parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic, chives, egg, salt and pepper. Arugula, provolone, caramelized onions, plain and spicy chipotle mayonaise on whole wheat sandwich roll. (Source)

Snack: Homemade Lara bar for the 900th time. ;) For an added surprise, I cut up some fresh strawberries.

Snack: Hummus mixed with leftover feta, leftover cannelloni beans, carrots, spelt sticks and Whole Foods brand fruit leather

March 21, 2012: Bon Appetit all the way

Both recipes from today’s lunch come from Bon Appetit. I have a serious love affair with that magazine. One recipe, you’ve already seen a few times—the roasted pineapple. The other is new. We tried a chicken meatball sub today. It was tasty but I ran out of time so didn’t execute the sandwich as well as I would have like. Hopefully I’ll get another go at it.
