Tomato and Avocado Sandwiches A La Blaha

tomato and avocado sandwich
Last month, my papa-in-law and my horno-in-law (I mean brother-in-law, Michael) came to visit us down here in San Diego. Matthew and I took them for a quick tour of the Hotel Del Coronado, and, of course, we went wine tasting. We visited Belle Marie winery and Ferrara Winery, both in Escondido. Since this was a quick tour, we decided to stop at a farm stand near the freeway and we bought farm-fresh tomatoes and avocados. Immediately we all decided we were going to make sandwiches, but we didn't have much time nor any utensils or bread. So we decided to make a quick stop at the grocery store and bought the rest of the ingredients. And yes, Michael made these wonderful sandwiches.

INGREDIENTS (makes 4 sammies)

  • 2 or 3 large, farm fresh tomatoes
  • 3 or 4 ripe avocados (depending on their size)
  • 8 slices of Munster cheese (from the deli counter)
  • packets of Mayo (you can steal, I mean take some from the deli or just buy a small jar)
  • 4 French rolls or your favorite sandwich bread
  • Plastic knife and fork (you can also take a couple from the deli!)
  1. Slice tomatoes in 1/4" thick slices. michael concentrating on cutting perfect slices
  2. Cut avocados by cutting around then removing the pit. Cut into wedges.
  3. Cut open your bread and spread generously with mayo. Divide the tomatoes, avocado wedges and cheese among the four pieces of bread.
  4. Eat like a maniac!
