New Subway Sandwich Review

34

WOW – I’ve had a busy day! 8O

Not bad…just busy. From the time I arrived to work, to the time that I left,  it was go, go, go – yo!

I had an elaborate chicken dish that I was going to prepare for dinner tonight, but put it on the back burner for something convenient and, more importantly, made by someone else. Subway to the rescue!

S-way sent me a giftcard to try their new Orchard Chicken Salad Sandwich and I thought tonight would be a perfect opportunity to do just that.

Six glorious inches on wheat, with…three apple slices. I got the “value meal” which came with an apple bag and a cup of yogurt. I didn’t like the yogurt flavors they had, and all but three of my apple slices were bad, but whatevs, because…

this sandwich rules! Roasted chicken mixed with crunchy celery, sweet apples, raisins and cranberries, married in light mayo.

I didn’t want my toppings to take too much away from the flavor of the salad so I got pickles for a salty contrast to the sweet apples & dried fruit, and cucumber for crunch. And because apparently I like cukes in all forms. :)

I will give mad props to Subway for making a chicken salad that definitely tastes homemade. It was light, it was creamy (but not excessively so) and I loved the cranberries in there. I add cranberries to my own mayo-less chicken salad recipe too!

And for the mayo haters out there (trust me I’m one too) this was perfectly fine. There was only enough mayo to bind the ingredients together, and I wasn’t freaked out at all.

Thanks Subway for the chance to try the new sub! :D 

In other news, it turned out, once again, to be a beautiful day outside!

I love big, fluffy clouds. They make me feel like I’m in a screensaver or something. ;)

My Dad teaches a “cloud unit” to his fifth graders every year, which is basically comprised of the class laying on their backs and pointing out cloud animals. Ahhh, the life of a fifth grader!

See anything? I spot a flying bird! Or a jumbo jet!

Allllrighty, DECOMPRESSION TIME – I am mentally wiped! I think I’m going to go read on my back deck, then make Ben walk down to the grocery store with me. I’ve formed an obsession a deep appreciation for those little crystal light lemonade packets that you mix with 16oz of water, and I used my last one today. The horror!! 8O

See ya!

Mayo – love it, or leave it?
