Meet my new best friend.. caffeine.
it’s times like these I wish I liked coffee, but I just can’t bring myself to pick up that habit. Instead I found this highly caffeinated breakfast tea to be very effective and perked me right up. 🙂
One of Allie’s Almond Butter Bites worked as well.
I have added searching Allie’s blog for the recipe to my list of things to do. These things are the perfect bite size treat and are just so tasty. It would be a great treat to bring to a get togethers or to share with the office.
A while back the nice people at Mezzetta sent me some info on their Make That Sandwich Contest. All summer people from all over the U.S. have been submitting recipes that spice up a typical sandwich. Mezzetta encourages people to have fun and be creative, which when it comes to food tends to be my philosophy.
Needless to say this contest was very fun to participate in.
Does this look like a boring sandwich to you?
(Sorry didn’t realize photos was blurry until I uploaded it 🙁 )
How about a $25,000 sandwich?
I have a couple of Mezzatta products to thank in obtaining the final results.
I’m crossing my fingers for a winner, so I can’t share the recipe yet, but you can probably guess all of the main components. Let’s just say the combination was just as great as I expected.
The Make That Sandwich Contest has three categories you can enter: Cold, Hot and Vegetarian. I am entering this baby under the vegetarian category. Each category finalist wins $1,000.

With my $25,000 sandwich 😉 I had some raw okra fries.
Yes, I eat the Okra raw and Yes, I love it. It’s not a texture for everyone, but I really enjoy it. I also like to dip the raw okra in ketchup. Yum!
Try it, you might like it!
This is my first time entering any sort of recipe contest and I am a bit nervous. The worst part is I never measure anything when I cook and the entry form asked for every details. Let’s hope I was accurate enough!
Do you enter recipe contests? Have you ever won one?
