Friday!

I have had a very long week, so I am very excited today is Friday as it is my one day off.

It means I might actually be able to catch up on a little blogging and with all of you, but sometimes I swear there just isn’t enough time in the day. I have sooo many errands to run and finding the time to shove it into all one day feels like just another day at work.

But I did manage to still find some time to join in on the #strangebutgood fun.

This is another one of those, I wish it took better pictures because it was way better tasting then the pictures do it justice.

But I feel like it is still worth sharing.

This meal kind of came together from a past sandwich I had made, to something new I had seen, probably on Pinterest somewhere that I wanted to try, and I just ended up kind of combing the two.

Story of my life.

But alas a delish new sandwich was made.

I served this with a side of oven roasted plantain chips.

For the plantains I just cut up a plantain, brushed them with coconut oil, sprinkled with cinnamon and baked for about 20 minutes.

I only buy one plantain at a time because I typically only make my plantain bread with them. I don’t know why because there are so many other amazing ways to use and eat the plantain, Lord knows I’ve pinned about 3942342 different recipes I want to try, but even just roasting them was a nice switch up and obviously better for you than your typical potato chip.

What’s your favorite healthy swap? I love making “fries” out of so many things. Sweet potato, carrots, parsnips, plantains… I really just love to roast everything.
