I am so over boring food. I just can’t do it anymore. I want to eat food that excites me. That makes me shed a tear once I’ve taken my last bite. That makes me regret the fact I didn’t make more. That leaves me yearning for another memorable food experience.
Yesterday. I pulled some chicken breast out of the freezer, and struggled trying to decide what to make. Remember I just mentioned I am SO OVER EATING BORING FOOD. So I knew it couldn’t be boring. But I wanted a sandwich. I wanted something that would jazz up my lunch box. I wanted something memorable. I wanted something that would make me shed a tear after I took my last bite.
I’m caribbean. I should make a caribbean sandwich. But I love asian food. I should make an asian sandwich. But I’m caribbean and I love asian food. So I gotta make a caribbean asian sandwich. And so it began!!
This sweet thai chili mayo is truly the all-star of this sandwich. When I say this spread is to die for, I’m not exaggerating. It is that good. The sweetness and spicy flavor of the thai chili sauce combined with the creaminess of the mayo, is just the perfect combination. Wild Thymes makes some of the BEST sauces I’ve ever had, and I use their Thai Chili Dipping Sauce in a lot of my asian dishes.
I could not have created a more perfect sandwich to pack in my amazing Lunchbots Cinco lunch box. I also packed some Driscoll’s mixed berries, a mini Babybel cheese, Goodie Girl Crunchy Chaos gluten free cookies, mixed nuts/dried berries, grape tomatoes, and sliced carrots. This has truly been my most impressive lunch so far this month
