Sandwiches and Portable Lunches

I don't know if it's just an old German trait, but when I love someone, I want to feed them. My grandmother does it too. We all associate Grandma's house with an uncomfortably full belly and alot of love. Maybe that's why we're so chubby!

When my loved ones aren't around, I still want to feed them and it warms my heart, and theoretically, theirs, to send something along with them wherever they are going.

Cold cuts are terrible things. They are filled with mysterious chemicals and huge amounts of sodium and who knows what else. I don't like them and I don't trust them. I do like a good roast beef or turkey sandwich with a slice of cheese, some horseradish sauce and some green onions… mmm… but, I preferred to make them from scratch because no matter how good the meat I got at the deli, it always tastes a little saltier than I thought it should, and that made me suspicious.

Just take a turkey breast (or a beef roast, or chicken or whatever) cook it, and slice it. Put it in baggies and freeze some and put it in your fridge when your supply runs out. You'll save money, and best of all, you'll know exactly what's going into your body and those of the people you love.

That being said, here's some more ideas for lunch box goodies.
