Cuban Sandwiches

I’m the worst blogger ever. Life has kept me busy. Work has kept me busy. I would say I promise to be better, but that might just end being another lie. I don’t mean to be a liar . . . But it probably wouldn’t be the truth.

But I did participate in this month Food ‘n Flix! Are you proud of me?

This month’s movie, Chef, was hosted by Culinary Adventures by Camilla. I had been intending to watch this movie for some time, but it took Food ‘n Flix to kick me in gear.

Chef is a movie for any foodie. A chef, Carl Casper, loses his job and tries to put his stuff back together – to find his drive. And what does he do? He opens a food truck, featuring Cuban Sandwiches!

There was a ton of choices in this movie. My list includes andouille sausage sandwiches, french onion soup, noodles of some sort, try to make something relating to Twitter, breakfast . . . There were a ton of choices.

But I decided to go the sandwich route, the Cuban sandwich route, in honor of the food truck.

The sandwich was delicious. I have so much pork now though, I’ll be eating pork for a week.

And this wasn’t the greatest picture . . . but I tried. I at least tried.
