I had a fun night last night at my girl Elle’s place — we had to do a group project together for school and decided to best way to do that was to also have a fun dinner involved 🙂 Win!
I love combining fun with productivity 🙂
We decided to make gourmet sandwiches — quick, easy, and tasty so that we could get down to work!
We made roasted chicken breast, bacon, and spinach sandwiches using this delicious ciabatta bread that Elle picked up from Trader Joe’s!
YUM. Clearly the bacon was the best part 😉
I also topped my sandwich with some spicy mustard and some of these caramelized onions that Elle made! I’ve been trying to be adventurous and have onions more often 🙂 I still hate raw ones, but I think I’m starting to like them cooked!
We also made some asparagus to have as a side — just roasted for about 10 minutes at 400 in some olive oil and sea salt/cracked pepper.
It was REALLY good — super fresh and juicy!
I love this little “photo station” stool Elle has set up in her kitchen to take photos of her food with natural light! Natural light is SO key with food photography.
We also enjoyed the rest of my Creamy Tomato Basil Soup as an appetizer/something to dip our crusty sandwich bread into 🙂
All together now!
After dinner, we banged out our school project amidst various fits of laughter. I <3 Elle. 🙂
I’m off to school — another busy day ahead! I’ll also be spending some time today cleaning/tidying the apartment because Tina is coming to visit tomorrow! It’s going to be in the 80’s here this weekend and we have big plans for the pool, BBQing, etc. Plus, a ridiculous 5k adventure/obstacle course race over in Greensboro on Saturday morning!
Don’t forget to enter my Chobani Greek yogurt giveaway! You have until tomorrow morning to enter. Also, a couple things from reading all your comments:
1) I didn’t know mango Chobani existed?!
2) I MUST try the new lemon and black cherry Chobani flavors. I haven’t seen them anywhere near me and ya’ll are all raving about them! Jealous!
