On one hand it was a little early for lunch. On the other hand, I've basically been physically active since I woke up at 0730'ish. So, I'm going with a notion from one of my favorite visual novels, that having expanded a lot of calories and having no good reason to wait: you naturally eat lunch, early.
Which also makes me realize that I haven't had any coffee yet. Therefore, it's time to make coffee while I update my journal ;).
Because I'm weird, I like pickles on the side. Because I'll eat at least half the bag otherwise, I'm smart enough to put chips on the side too. And who needs a few bits of tomato leftover just because you were one piece of ham shy of another wrap.
Think I've found a pattern that works really well for me in terms of making a sandwich wrap. These are made by:
- One slice of American cheese
- Broken into smaller strips and lined up so that it's smaller than half a slice deep.
- Starting about 1 centimeter below the edge of the tortilla.
- Three slices of salami
- Simply, a thin layer of cold drier cold cuts.
- These are nice sandwich sized and thin sliced, so it takes that many to fill a layer.
- Enough leafy greens to fit between my fingers and palm.
- I'm more inclined towards greens like arugula, spinach, chard, etc.
- Thinly layered.
- A swing of sauce.
- In this case, ranch dressing.
- Often, I'll use horse radish sauce, or whatever salad dressing I'm in the mood for.
- A few chunks of tomato.
- Romas are easily chopped into chunks a bit larger than a fingernail in length and three or four tossed in the middle.
- Adds more crunch and variety to my diet.
- Which works because I don't like to eat a tomato, but I do like tomato in stuff.
- One slice of hot honey ham
- Simply, a second layer of cold cuts to help hold it together.
- One slice of Cheddar cheese.
- Broken into strips and positioned similarly.
- I like two kinds of cheese for flavor and tend to shop that way to compensate for the odds that one will become midnight snacking instead of sandwich fixings.
- Roll the burrito sized tortilla up, press to help keep it shut, and optionally slice in half.
