FAST FOOD: HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU SLAP TOGETHER A SANDWICH?
I am a former fast food junkie. At one point in my life I regularly ate fast food once a day, every day and frequently I ate fast food two to three times a day. Now I really try hard to eat it no more than once a week... yet my schedule has gotten even crazier than those fast food days. How do we do it?
My answer (and you may have one too - if you do, pls reply) is basically "HOW FAST CAN YOU MAKE A SANDWICH?" To me, my "sandwich" is the new fast food. I ALWAYS ALWAYS have sandwich stuff on hand. I pull out the bread, slap mayo on one half, this great smoky mustard (got from Honeybaked Ham) on the other, put on a piece of cheese and either Turkey or ham... cut it in half, throw some carrots on my plastic plate, a pickle, and grab a bottle of water and head off to the car. THAT IS MY 'FAST FOOD' lunch. I eat it in the car (just like fast food) and I don't have the guilt. I think it honestly takes me just as long to do this as it does for me to wait in the drive thru (you know it does take more time than you think...)
So my question to you for today is... HOW FAST CAN YOU SLAP TOGETHER A SANDWICH? Think about that the next time you are considering fast food - especially if you are leaving the house to do drive thru on the way.
