From time to time, when I'm home alone, I'll try to compose a sandwich containing a balance of store bought and homemade, healthy and not so healthy, at the same time delicious stuff. Although sandwiches are generally not thought of as gourmet food, I think that a little love and creativity can make them just that.
The tomato sauce was also homemade, using only five ingredients. Here's the recipe.
3 tbs olive oil
2.2 lb tomatoes
3 cloves garlic (or 2 ts garlic powder)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
(or to your own taste)
And what makes me especially happy, is serving it to someone I love, and seeing that they enjoy it. The meal will then usually become a household staple, enjoyed, and when not enjoyed, remembered for a long time.
P. S. I'm a fresh parsley addict, too :)
