Menu Plan Money: “I Wanna Sammich” Edition

From the "My Body is So Weary" Edition of Menu Plan Money

Normally, I’m not a big sandwich eater. But lately, I’ve been craving them.

Plus, I bought three packs of bacon last week, and I can’t wait to integrate it into my meals.

Carbs are the only thing that make me reluctant to center an entire week’s menu plan around sandwiches.

Oh, the carbs! Aaaaargh!

But I think I discovered a way to solve the problem.

Instead of using pre-sliced sandwich bread, I’ll pick up a fresh loaf from Harris Teeter. I double dog dare you to find a supermarket with better bread than Harris Teeter. No, seriously, let me know if more delicious bread exists.

Throughout the week, on an as needed basis, I’ll slice the bread into thin, thigh friendly sized pieces, then assemble my sammich.

Yep. That’s what I’m gonna do. You think it’ll work?

Monday: Egg Salad Sandwich and Fruit Salad

Tuesday: Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich and French Fries

Wednesday: Bacon, Lettuce and Guacamole Burger and Fruit Salad

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Bangkok 54 or BusBoys and Poets

Saturday/Sunday: Layered Salad and Restaurant Fodder

I think it'll work. I don't eat bread anymore but when I did, I could not stop at two slices, ever. So if you have the willpower, I say go for it!

You made my mouth water with your Monday-Wednesday menus. I love sammiches (lol), and I go especially nuts over egg salad sandwiches. The meal photo is divine, and looks exactly like dishes that I prepare.

Your menu sounds delicious. I love bacon anything! I try to steer clear of carbs but sometimes my cravings get the best of me. We started making our own bread and it doesn't seem to bother me as much as store bought bread did.
