I love to eat. LOVE it.
I try to take a moment extra, when making something – to add just a little extra twist to play with the senses. Then,take a few extra moments, as I enjoy my tasty treat, to clear my mind and just ENJOY the flavors, aromas, and sensations.
Today, I stepped way out of my box and put together a beautiful melody for my mouth.
Yes, it was just a sandwich. LOL
But to my usual honey roasted turkey – I used a creamy smoked Gouda, then added some crumbled blue cheese to bring in some bold flavor. I added capers (never done this) for bursts of salty tartness and sun-dried fire roasted tomatoes to compliment them. With turkey, I usually like to sprinkle in some dried cranberries – the sweet tartness is perfect with turkey and reminds me of Thanksgiving meals with my family – happy nostalgia goes well with any deli meat, really. Then some sliced green onion for a burst of aroma and a little spinach for crunch.
Oh wow. There were so many flavors playing together as I ate my meal, with some sweet potato and cinnamon Sun Chips. More like a symphony under fireworks.
Healthy lunch; energy is great after eating. No fries needed with this combo.
Twenty minutes later – I can still taste the flavors. That, my friends, makes me very happy.
