So, I had a choice; start from the beginning of the sandwich flavours and work my way through them again, in a fashion similar to painting the Forth Bridge, or create something different.
Bizarrely, I decided to create something different....get this... in my kitchen, at home. Yep, I decided to make something with 'ingredients' rather than eating something that came whole out of a box. Even more bizarrely, I decided to make up my own recipe. The risk factor was shooting through the roof, a bit like those graphs that you see on TV when the stock market is doing badly.
But guess what? It was a triumph! So much so, that I am going to share the recipe with you. Here goes:
Pic.No.1. Chicken, pesto, pepper and rocket pitta breads - good eh?
2 chicken breasts
1 yellow pepper (capsicum)
1 red pepper (capsicum)
2 handfuls of rocket
1 handful of fresh basil
4 pitta breads
Cut the peppers into strips and place on a baking tray along with the chicken breasts (Gas Mark 6 - 204Celsius) for 25 minutes. Remove, and slice the chicken breast making sure it is cooked through. In the meantime, slightly brown the pitta breads under the grill or in the toaster. Be careful though, for some reason pittas have a tendency to superheat themselves after a couple of minutes in the toaster. I haven't got any fingerprints on my right hand any more.
Once the pitta breads have cooled, take a teaspoon and a half of the pesto sauce and smooth over the inside of the pitta bread. Layer the chicken and peppers on top. Then lay the tomato slices on top of the chicken and peppers. Finally, add plenty of rocket and basil leaves.
P.S. I forgot to mention that it is also really healthy, so if you don't want to be a blob, you can safely eat this.
P.P.S. Please let me know what you think of it if you tried it. It's the first recipe I have ever made up, so have quite high excitement levels about it.
P.P.P.S. Will try and finish the last bank holiday postings tomorrow.
