Crusty. Grainy. Seedy. Delicious.

by Meghann on April 30, 2012

During my Saturday shopping spree at Publix I spotted something that caught my attention in the bakery – crusty muesli rolls.

It was one of those I-stupidly-went-shopping-hungry-and-am-throwing-everything-that-looks-good-in-my-basket type of trips, so the muesli rolls didn’t stand a chance. Two rolls were requested from Mr. Bakery Man and two rolls have been staring at me from their paper bag on the kitchen counter ever since.

The rolls were grainy and filled with seeds, oats, dried fruit, and a touch of honey. Yum. I was planning on doing fun, fancy sandwiches for lunch or dinner yesterday, but the Great American Pie Festival spoiled those plans (totally worth it). When I took the rolls out for lunch today, the fun, fancy sandwich idea had lost my interest and eggs seemed to enter my mind.

Two scrambled eggs, green onions, provolone cheese, fresh spinach, and a smear of strawberry rhubarb jam. Oh, man. Sandwiched in the center of the muesli roll – this sucker was good.

I even toasted the roll just a tad under the broiler to enhance its crusty crunch. Who needs boring bread? I’ve decided I need more grainy rolls in my life. :)

The leftover mashed sweet potato from Saturday’s dinner was the perfect complement to the sweet and savory egg sandwich.

Loved this lunch. So simple. So good. :)

Something to share…

Once upon a time I used to draw. Sorta. I mean… not very well, but I did.

(I told you not very well. What’s up with the disfigured leg?!)

It’s a skill I inherited from both sets of grandparents (and both of my parents!) who are all great artists (my dad doesn’t draw now, but I do have some sketches of his from high school that I’m never giving back). Of course, they are all much, much better than I am. Much.

Proof: Last week my grandma was inspired by a photo she saw on Facebook (Yes, my grandma is on Facebook – both of them are. They also read the blog. HI GRANDMAS!!!!) and sent us all this.

It was labeled “Anderson Pets.” Swoon.

Poor Maddie looks so confused, but Sadie and Oliver are very happy. :)

In case you were curious, this is the photo she worked off of (minus Maddie, she used a different photo for her)

Pretty good, right?

Again.

I’m going to frame it and hang it on my wall. Love it.

Do you have any hidden talents (or semi-talents) that you’ve inherited from your parents?

And speaking of my grandma….

She also posted this on Facebook.

It’s her wedding dress! My great-grandmother made it for her in 1963.

And you know what? It still fit.

To be honest, that was the first time I’ve ever seen my grandmother’s wedding dress (they’ve lost all their wedding photos) and it really took my breath away. It’s such a beautiful, simple dress – I just wish I would have known she still had it before I bought my own dress. I told her to set it aside for now, I want to try it on next time I’m in town. :)
