The question of what qualifies as a sandwich has long been debated, but that’s not what we’re talking about today. We figure we’re all, more or less, on the same page about what a sandwich is, but maybe not as much about how they can save us during our busiest times. So this week is all about how sandwiches — from the lunchbox variety to dinner sammies — can help make our transition to back-to-school way easier.
The Secrets for Tastier Sandwiches
As we transition from summer to back-to-school seasons, we’re both leaning heavily on sandwiches for both packed lunches and dinners. These seemingly simple meals can bring tons of flavor, opportunities to adapt to both picky eaters and different dinner times, and use up leftovers. But as you can imagine, we find some ground rules make for easier and tastier sandwiches. There aren’t a ton of recipes linked but there are TONS of ideas in this episode!
