Over the weekend, I satisfied my craving for fried bacon sammiches. mmm .... they were SO good ... all three of them!
Over the last few days, I've had another sammich craving. I was wanting more bacon, but with something else ... unquantifiable ... at least, until today. I figured it out: I wanted a tuna salad club sammich.
The only ingredients I had at home, I knew for sure, was tuna — I tried the Starkist in the pouch for the first time ever ... nice!! — the mayonnaise and some black pepper. So a little before work ended, I snuck out to the supermarket. I got thick-sliced bacon, some ripe tomatoes, an onion, eggs and some hoagie rolls. I wanted fresher rolls from my favorite bakery, but they were out of what I wanted.
As soon as I got home, I started some water to boil, for the eggs. Once it was boiling, I dropped in a few eggs, then put a skillet on a burner and started frying the bacon. Got the bacon all nice and super crispy. While it was frying, I diced some onions finely and took the tuna out of the pouches. Put that into a bowl, broke it up a bit with a fork, then put in the onions and some black pepper. Tossed that together and put it in the fridge. Sliced the tomatoes and put them in the fridge to chill too.
Got the bacon all fried up and drained on some paper towels to take away a little bit of the grease. Took the eggs off and rinsed them with cold water, then put them in the fridge. Let it all sit for about 20 minutes, then came back. Put a couple of hoagie rolls into the toaster oven to get them nice and ... well, toasty. LOL ... Shelled the eggs, cut them in half and tossed the yolks (don't like that taste with my tuna), then chopped them into nice-size chunks and added it to the tuna. Tossed that, then added some mayo and mixed it well.
The timer on the toaster oven rang, so the toasted rolls went onto a paper plate, then I took it all — tuna salad, bread, tomatoes and crispy bacon to the room.
Lookit all that sammich goodness!
Then it was assembly time.
This photo may not be the greatest, but it gives you the idea. I was too hungry to take too many shots to ensure the lighting and focus were perfect. LOL
Still plenty of bacon and tuna left over, so it looks like that's what I'm having for breakfast or lunch tomorrow. But I don't mind at all ... it's some goooooood stuff.
OK ... I think this is the most domestic and boring posts ever. And here I thought this post would rise to the level of my Sloppy Joe post. LOL
Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• The United States acquired Guam in 1898 from Spain in the Treaty of Paris, following the Spanish-American War. The rest of the Mariana Islands went to Germany, which held them till the end of World War I, when they were given to Japan for its assistance to the Allies in the "War to End All Wars."
