Summer sandwiches

This morning Matt and I went to the local farmers market. I got melons, corn, peaches, peppers, apricots, tomatoes, potatoes, romaine lettuce, salad mix, and bread. We also stopped by Cheesetique for fresh mozzarella and goat cheese. With the basil, onions, beans, tomatoes, and squash we got this week I'm going to try and cook more than the last few weeks.

The beautiful tomatoes. It may look like a bunch, but they'll all be eaten this week. The red and brown are from Graceland Farms CSA and the yellow are from the farmer's market.
For lunch today I made chicken sandwiches with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and homemade honey mustard. After cooking chicken that's been sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried thyme I cut up a tomato and ripped up two pieces of romaine. I also toasted four pieces of bread in the oven and melted a little cheese. Mix equal parts honey from the CSA and Dijon mustard, and slather it on the toast. Assemble and you've got a great lunch.
On a different note, Matt's refusing to watch Everyday Italian because the host isn't making something he would eat, and she's not wearing a low cut top. That's unacceptable in his world.

Jeff maintains Giada ONLY gained popularity when the neckline plumetted, and Matt clearly agrees.
