One of my son's favorite meatless lunches is a Toasted Tomato Sandwich. He likes to give me specific instructions on how to make this simple, but satisfying, sandwich.
J: Mom ~ toast it, but not too dark. Add mayonnaise, but not too much. Spread on some cream cheese, but just a little. Don't forget the salt and pepper ~ but put it on the tomato and not the bread. Only slice it in two...not in fours. Don't forget my baby carrots and peanut butter. Do I have to eat the crusts? Really? All of them?? OK, I'm finished. Can I have some more?
Me: You want to eat more veggies? No problem-o! Coming right up! :)
