Oh Saturday, your always so good to me.
Today was a good day. Sunny. But not too sunny. Perfectly paced, not too slow not too fast. Like I said it was a good day.
I went to the Sunset Valley Farmers Market, picked up some grass-fed beef, free-spirited eggs, kimchi, and greens. yum. Hunter bought an egg frittata sandwhich with bacon. It was HUGE and he was unable to finish it without a little help from me. (this rarely happens).
Afterwards we made our way through a few secondhand book stores and eventually ended up at the park. The park we go to is awesome. Plenty of trees to lazily read a book under and a good amount of space to throw a frisbee. There is always a parking spot and never an obnoxious amount of people there and I want to keep it that way so we’ll just refer to it as The Park.
I packed us a picnic which ended up being rather delicious. We had Roasted Turkey, Pesto, Mushroom sandwiches with greek yogurt, honey, organic strawberries and kombucha. The recipe to the sandwich follows below.
Later on I met up with my sister to see the movie The Adjustment Bureau which actually ended up being pretty darn good. Although the last movie I saw in theaters was The Black Swan so I’m pretty sure I would have liked anything after that one.
My Saturday has been good to me, and I hope your Saturday has been good to you : )
Roasted Turkey + Mushroom+ Pesto Sandwich
Ingredients – Serves 1
2 slices of Seeduction bread (from Whole Foods) or organic bread of your choice
2 slices of roasted turkey breast
1 tablespoon of pesto
1 tablespoon of goat cheese
2 baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
Heat your oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Saute your mushrooms until lightly browned then remove from skillet and set aside.
Spread your pesto on your bread, divided between the two pieces. Place your Turkey on the one side of the bread slices, your cheese on top of that ( i spread my goat cheese on the turkey), then your sautéed mushrooms. Top off with your pesto-ed piece of bread.
Lastly, place your sandwich in a skillet heated over medium high and cook until bottom side is lightly browned. Repeat on the other side of the sandwich.
* I actually drizzled a little honey on mine as well. Weird but good. So if your feeling daring…
