Introducing the Biggie Sandwich

...Or more appropriately, the "Biggie Sammidge".
I realize I haven't posted a recipe in awhile so I'll make up for my lack of food appreciation in the next few days.


Not a lot of people liked 3rd year and I was feeling incredibly overwhelmed around the Christmas holidays, but in hindsight (everything challenging looks better when it's behind you) this year was so much fun.
I've come to see just how important community/public health is and it's more or less solidified my desire to get into it. Prevention and promotion. Let's not treat the symptoms of illness, let's get down to the roots of health disparities and promote equity. Socialist parents, gotta love 'em.
I also loved my placement and was actually kind of sad to not have it to go to this morning. One of the guys there who I became pretty good friends with sent me a message last night saying how bummed he was I wasn't going to be there tomorrow. Made me feel appreciated even if it was because I brought in baked goods and kept him entertained for hours rather than because of my incredible nursing skills.

The exam yesterday went well, or at least it went exactly as I was expecting it to go. I was so bad about studying for it but in the end I was right and it was an exam that you studied for throughout the year. If you hadn't learned anything about community health principles (the Ottawa Charter of Health's health promotion strategies became my go to name-dropper in all of my papers) you weren't going to be able to learn them the day before the exam.
Regardless, I'm done. Finito. Finis.

When I go to work in a few hours the aforementioned sandwich will hopefully be waiting for me. As far as I know, it is the brain child of one of the maintenance guys and it is amazing. Plus you make enough for several people so it's a social event too.
And bread/sandwiches are my biggest vice. I cannot say no to bread.
Restaurants without bread baskets should not exist.

Pete's Biggie Sandwich

You will need:
  • 1 French Baguette
  • 1 jar sundried tomotoes
  • 1 jar eggplant in oil
  • Genoa salami
  • provalone cheese
  • Hot peppers

1. Cut the baguette lengthwise. On the bottom piece drizzle some of the oil from the sundried tomoatoes. Pat excess oil off of the sundried tomatoes and place along the bottom piece of bread. Top with eggplant, again patting off excess oil, and with hot peppers.
2.  Layer the salami on top and then the cheese. Put the sandwich together and enjoy!

I'll be off to enjoy this sandwich in a few minutes.
Tomorrow: Tiramisu!
At some point this week: A running playlist for my new girl-crush

P.S. My mom fractured her ankle :( Poor Queenie.
And start thinking of songs for our drive to Ottawa. I'll be over possibly tomorrow to make some CDs....
