Shaking the Status Quo


Some days, you’ve just got to change things up. Some days, you’ve got to buck the status quo.  This is true for work and life, so it should come as no shock that this is true for sandwiches as well.

I wanted to do something different for today’s lunch. Before you worry, I am not going back on my carb free diet that helped me lose weight successfully but also allowed me to put it back on in record time.  I am just talking about changing up the ingredients in my sandwich.

For today’s version, I added a fried egg. Perhaps this was my homage to Japanese cooking which often placed a fried egg on top of the hamburger.  Perhaps this was a way to enhance the flavour because I had only one kind of lunch meat and my spicy mustard had run out–I was forced to use honey mustard.

For a shake-up the routine sandwich it was okay. It tasted fine, but I forgot or didn’t have enough ingredients.  It could have used more tomatoes, onion or alfalfa sprouts, mayonnaise, pepper, and even some more cheese.  I still take my sandwiches seriously, and I have no trouble awarding this one Today’s Perfect Moment.

    Every once in a while I enjoy a fried egg. I also like to poach a couple of eggs to add to my morning oatmeal. It’s better than it sounds, I assure everyone.
