Sandwich with Egg Omelette and Tomato Spread
 

I know this sandwich is very simple and anyone can think off. But I love simple yet tasty dishes to eat. For me the dish should look good before even I tried them out, I know I am crazy but that’s how I am. My mom use to scold me a lot because I was such a picky eater.  Now I understand what all she has to go through with such a picky eater like me. Thank God my 18 month old son is not like me. He is just like his dad who happily eat whatever I make without any complains.

Ciabatta Sandwich with Turkey Burger  

 I love sandwiches and keep modifying with different ingredients every time. There is no rule to follow for perfect sandwich, only thing you can do is add and subtract what you like and dislike. At least it hold true for us.  We made this sandwich with ciabatta bread which is an italian bread and turkey burger. And this sandwich was really filling, we enjoyed this with some kettle roasted potato chips and coke.
