Missy over at Sweet Crumbs made herself an awesome SPAM sandwich for her dinner. I was so inspired that I made it almost right away!
I was glad that I did not just bookmark her recipe and put it aside, otherwise I wouldn't believe that I could actually create a deli-style sandwich at home :)
No, I didn't make the bread, just like Missy, I bought a loaf of Gardenia focaccia, which happens to me my favourite bread before I started baking bread at home.
I really like her idea of pairing luncheon meat with mushrooms. Even though we all know that we should cut down on processed food, I just can't resist the temptation of a SPAM sandwich. I believe as long as we eat everything in moderation, we should be fine...and it is not as though we have luncheon meat every other week, I couldn't even remember when was the last time we had luncheon meat in our meals, it must be many moons ago. And, I bought SPAM Lite, which claims to contain less fat and less sodium (well, it still taste loaded with sodium!) Yes, yes, I am trying hard to justify that I am not a bad mom because I feed my kids with junk food ;')
I have never been a good cook, but I was so proud to be able to put together a foot-long sandwich. During the preparation, I felt as though I was a sandwich artist ^_^"
So here's another quick-fix meal, the kids were all bright eyed and bushy tailed when they saw their yummy 'deli-style' lunch.
Thanks Missy for sharing such a great meal idea!
