the everyday sandwich

why is this called the everyday sandwich?  because i could eat it every. day.  no joke.


this sandwich was born out of stubbornness: me, not wanting to go to the grocery store and getting creative with what we had on hand.  enter goat cheese, cherry tomatoes (especially the heirloom variety!), avocado, sourdough bread and lemon pepper.  because everything is better with lemon pepper.


we do most of our shopping once a week at coscto, and all of these ingredients were bought there.


first i lightly toast the sourdough bread slices, then i spread on a hefty amount of goat cheese on.


for a little zing, i add several sprinkles of lemon pepper.


i slice the tomatoes in half or thirds, depending on the size, and pile them on.


depending on the size of the sourdough slices, i use 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado to slice and add to the other half of the sourdough.


slap them together and enjoy every bite!

another one of my favorites is cottage cheese with cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, and of course, more lemon pepper ;)

do you have an easy go-to lunch you could eat every day?
