A sexy sandwich: get your eat on

It seems like everywhere I went this weekend everyone was talking about going back to school. It made me start thinking about how in a few short years Olly will be picking out supplies, a new backpack, and scoping out the grocery store for his favorites for his lunch. It wasn't before long that this thought process led me to obsessing over fun sandwich combinations. Ones that would be sure to step up anyone's brown bag. Well folks...after two days of obsessing, I decided to do something about it yesterday afternoon and finally made one that was floating around in my head. Boy did my stomach thank me.

I must warn you if you are hungry to proceed with caution. This post may cause a bit of drooling and maybe even a case of lunch envy for those who may only be sporting a sad little sandwich or last nights leftovers. Just sayin'

Meet my pesto, heirloom tomato & mozzarella sandwich combination with a drizzle of truffle oil and balsamic & a sprinkle of sea salt. Say that five times...I dare you. The trick to this sandwich not being soggy is to find a really hard & rustic chunk of baguette. 

The heirloom tomatoes are in season for us right now and literally melted in our mouth. It was an awesome combination that even my little picky sandwich eater loved. My kiddo won't even eat peanut butter and jelly...Totally un-American of him, right?! The nerve. However, he does adore pesto and a juicy tomato. So this one was a real winner. I must admit that I danced over the truffle oil and sea salt combo something fierce. I truly felt like it was the sexiest sandwich...except for the juices that dripped over my fingers and the corner of our mouths...but, hey...who's perfect?! Just eat it up. I also liked how now I have pesto for pasta and extra tomatoes for a salad later in the week and I was able to get four sandwiches out of one baguette. Go me!

So what do you think? Does it look and sound yummy enough to make your mouth want to party with it? What are some of your favorite sandwich combos? Shhhhhh....I love banana and mayonnaise  Thanks for that mom. I hope you have a great start to your week.
