Everything is cuter when it’s mini.
So when you stuff lunch into a little 6-ounce jar, goodness gracious it’s just too cute. Oh, and then there are layers, which automatically ups the cuteness. And think about this, only delicious food comes in layers…lasagna, cakes and oreos. See the trend?!
I mean, layered things are just always in, which is why I think this works. I would look ridiculous if I attempted to wear stripes + plaid together. But I’m already envisioning my future children wearing the combo. Speaking of kids, I mentioned the name “Olivia” to Andrew as a possible name for a girl and he said, “No, because I don’t like olives.” I don’t want to name our plaid and stripes clothed child “Olive”…I want to name her “Olivia.” Hello. Totally different. Am I right, or am I right? Haters gonna hate.
Sometimes I think life would be dull if I had never discovered the avocado + egg combination. But egg + avocado doesn’t even touch healthy cinnamon rolls. Seriously, life changing. Who doesn’t want to live in a world where you can eat cinnamon rolls every morning for breakfast. Sign me up.
Okay, real quick let’s talk about Breaking Bad. Ew. I mean, the show is good. I went on a netflix binge and have watched the first 4 episodes of the first season. It’s so dark. And disturbing. And just gross. Gross. I’ll probably watch more.
Want to know what else is gross? Probably not, but bear with me. Panera’s Frontega Chicken Sandwich. It used to be my absolute favorite sandwich but I hadn’t had it in like 4 years…I don’t know why, I just kinda forgot about it. So after grad school orientation yesterday I was sitting in Houston traffic feeling irritable and girly and hungry…when ta-dah I saw a Panera. So I decided to grab dinner as traffic died down (haha, that was a joke. Houston traffic never dies, just like N’sync).
So the bread on the sandwich used to be this delicious-fluffy-all-around-amazing foccacia bread with thinly sliced onions baked into the top. And now it’s like this microwaved-looking (and tasting) “bread.” So disappointing. Oh well, things change. I do have to say though, I could eat their black bean soup every day. Love.
Okay, on to jars. With this recipe you alternate slices of sweet potatoes, avocados and cilantro inside a jar. Then you bake it and top it with an egg that has been baked into a red onion ring. Easy peasy. I call it lunch.
