Hi. It’s me. I have been pretty busy lately, thus the lack of blog posts.
Sheesh, that was a VERY boring opening, let’s do it all over again.
Hello lovely people! I have missed you just as much as how I have been missing the sandwiches from Subway. Okay, maybe I missed you guys a little bit more. ♥
So it was Mother’s day last Sunday. We ordered a take out of Indian food. Naan, tandoori chicken, kebabs.. you know those kinda yummy stuffs. It was just a small celebration as we would be having another party this coming Sunday for mom’s birthday. Yup, her birthday is a week after mother’s day and she always gets a double weekend celebration every year. ♥
I am gonna be really busy from this weekend for the upcoming three weeks. Starting from mom’s birthday party this weekend and then we would be shifting after that. Yup, finally it is time to move. Following week to next, that is!
The cousin’s big day is coming up in June. She is my closest maternal cousin and I would have to really sweat it out the whole week for her wedding. #teambride. I am going to be doing her candy/dessert table. Besides the candies and chocolates that we are going to be buying, I would also be baking cookies, muffins and brownies. Am gonna be surrounded by hungry, cute, loud and excited kids due to all those sugar rush. God bless me.
Anyhoo, most of the fast food joints in Singapore is Halal, from MCD to KFC to Pizza hut. Subway on the other hand is not halal certified and usually the Muslims community over here would get our subway dose from Malaysia since it is halal and therefore easily available. Do you know that the capital city of Johor in southern Malaysia is basically just next to Singapore?It would take you about 1.5 hours to reach there from Singapore. Isn’t it ridiculous that I am technically overseas in like 90 minutes? Whenever I enter the subway in Malaysia, I would exit with at least 8 subs. That is how you should roll when you are in Malaysia. Food galore at its best.
As easy and convenient buying a Subway is, I don’t think you can really go there every day or every other day just to appease yourself. This Homemade Subway Sandwich on the other hand, requires minimum effort. You essentially set forth with a bread of your option, be it a baguette or a ciabatta or even the honey oat bread like the ones Subway uses. You then top it with delicious slices of meats like turkey ham, beef bacon or even meatballs and fill it up with vegetables. My preference would be lettuce, onions, peppers and tomatoes. Finally, drizzle some sauce to bring it all together. You can do a mayo drizzle, an onion sauce or even a vinaigrette. How easy was that? It would take you barely 10 minutes. You need at least 15 minutes to dress up to go to Subway. If you are me, you would need 60 minutes. Minimum.
Whenever I am craving for a subway and there is no way of me going to Malaysia to grab one, I would make this. ↓
I really enjoy a good sandwich. The crunch from the lettuce, the juicy tomatoes and oozing cheese! You got to have the cheese man. Making your own subway sandwich is really an easy way to enjoy your sandwich, just the way you like it. Making a sub is also a quick way to fill the kids lunch boxes. These Homemade Subway Sandwich are too dandy for those busy days when you do not really have time to fuss in the kitchen after a long day’s work, yet you wanna serve something yummy. Can anyone resist a sub? Na’ah!
