Sandwiches - and they're reading....

We like sandwiches and have been especially eating them often while Jeff is home recuperating. Plain meat and bread sandwiches are OK, but we prefer
ours with extras. I don't have all the free time in the world so I like to make up a few days worth of toppings at one time. We like lettuce, sliced tomatoes, dill pickles and onions - pretty much the same toppings for hamburgers too. So I put them all in a plastic container and store in the fridge. They keep fresh for at least 3 days - but we usually eat them before that.
I put the pickles and tomatoes in their own container so their juice does not run all over each other and then put those dishes inside the big dish.
Speaking of sandwiches, I wrote a post last week or so just telling that we like Oroweat Sandwich Thins. It was an ordinary post, just to you all. The next day, I got an email from a communications rep for Oroweat/Arnolds.
And yesterday, the Fed Ex man brought us a package of Arnolds rye Sandwich Thins.
We had the Rye Sandwich Thins for lunch today and they were delicious, really good with turkey and mustard.

So, don't be surprised if more than your family and few other homemakers are reading your blog.
Here is more info about our favorite bread - they really are our favorite - and I thought that before they FedEx-ed me a package of bread.

Hi Rhonda,

Since you’re a fan of Arnold Sandwich Thins I wanted to let you know that they’re now available nationwide! Liven up lunchtime with a bakery product unlike any other - Arnold Select Sandwich Thins, sandwich-sized sliced flatbread rolls. Each variety of Sandwich Thins contains no high fructose corn syrup and provides the benefits of whole grains and fiber. Available in four varieties: 100% Whole Wheat, Multi-Grain, Seedless Rye and Whole Grain White, they are each an excellent source of fiber and contain only 100 calories.

Sandwich Thins are available for a suggested retail price of $3.19, for more information visit Arnold Sandwich Thins
here. Let me know if you’d like to try a sample in a variety that you haven’t already tasted.

Furthermore, since September is Whole Grains Month, I wanted to also let you know about Arnold’s Dutch Country 100% Whole Wheat Bread, a soft and flavorful whole grain loaf with the heart healthy stamp of approval! It’s a good source of Calcium, Vitamins A, D and E packs 3 grams of fiber per serving and contains no High Fructose Corn Syrup. Each slice offers 19 grams of Whole Grains so you can feel good about lunching on a sandwich made with Arnold Dutch Country 100% Whole Wheat Bread.

If you’re not familiar with this bread, let me know so I can send you a sample as well! You can learn more about the bread
here, which is available nationwide (branded as “Arnold” east of the Mississippi and “Oroweat” west of the Mississippi River).




  1. We like sandwiches, too...even in the winter with a pot of soup for supper...yummy! How cool is that having the company looking at your blog and sending you rye thins!? Pretty neat!

  2. Hi Rhonda,
    I have been making sandwiches here this week too. Dave likes them on english muffins or bagels. I sometimes make breakfast sandwiches. Egg,Cheese and Bacon.

  3. I like the idea of keeping everything cut up before hand. That sure would make things easy!

  4. Love the sandwich thins. Great for sandwiches and TOAST. First time I made my husband a sandwich with them, he pulled it out of the zip lock baggie at work and remarked "COOKIE? SHE MADE ME A COOKIE?" After the first bite he said it was a great sandwich...
