Squash and Hummus Melt

I love sandwiches! I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner (but I would probably eventually get bored of them, so I choose not to do that). There are so many different things to do with sandwiches-egg breakfast sandwiches on an english muffin, boring turkey and cheese sandwiches for lunch, pb & j sandwiches for kids, meatball or sausage sandwiches for dinner...so many more too! So, today I decided to use what I had left in my fridge before leaving for Christmas traveling for 2 weeks to make the perfect sandwich (in my opinion at least)!

  • 1 pita flatbread
  • 2 small summer squash (green & yellow)
  • roasted pine nut hummus
  • american cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

First, cut the squash into small pieces. Then add some salt and pepper then place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Then, spread a generous amount of hummus (I used roasted pine nut) onto the flatbread.

Once the squash is the texture you like, place them onto the hummus on your bread. Then, either place it in your toaster oven or broil in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.

There you have it, a delicious, healthy and very filling lunch! I ate some grape tomatoes alongside my melt...perfect :)

I spent the rest of the afternoon baking lots of chocolate chip pumpkin bread to give to all of our neighbors for Christmas gifts! I found these adorable snowmen loaf pans at The Christmas Tree Shop for 89 cents. That = a cheap and thoughtful gift!

I spent last night watching the movie, "Eat, Pray Love" and loved it. I decided to watch it while Jeff is away since he would probably never want to watch this one with me. I have never read the book but really want to once seeing the movie (I know I know, you are suppose to read before seeing the movie). I thought I would share one of my favorite quotes with you, and it just happened to be the last quote of the entire movie:

"If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared - most of all - to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself....then truth will not be withheld from you."
