Everyday Mom's Meals: What To Have?

What To Have?

I don't know how lunch works at your house, but at mine, it's never a "set" meal. It's more of a "whatever you can find, eat it" meal. Especially on weekdays when Adam is working and Alex is at school. Sometimes I get so busy doing my daily routine I actually forget to each lunch, but such is the life of a housewife. However, on other days I open the fridge wondering "oh what to have." It might be a quick snack, or other times I gaze at all the leftovers we have and wonder what I could whip up with them. That is how this sandwich came to be. On the leftovers list was: roast beef, horseradish cream sauce, spinach from a salad and hamburger buns. Well, it didn't take a genius to figure out a sandwich could easily be created, especially w/ the spinach. Have you ever substituted it for lettuce in a sandwich? I started years ago when my husband turned me onto it. Even at Subway, I leave the lettuce off and opt for spinach instead! It can give your favorite sandwich a whole new flavor and texture. This is definitely something I will be trying to remember again when all of those items show up in my fridge at the same time again! Sometimes the best creations happen when you least expect it!
