Cheap and easy: Sub night

Heather says:

Depending on the size of your crew, pick up loaves of Italian bread and your favorite sandwich meats. Load up the sub with everyone’s favorite toppings, slice, and enjoy. If you have resident mayo haters (like myself), just make sure their portion of the sandwich is ick free. Serve with raw veggies and dip or splurge on a bag of chips. Our kids think subs are fun compared to regular sandwiches and they certainly do not require a lot of effort. At least not much more than explaining your entire family’s likes and dislikes to the sandwich artist while other customers sigh and look at their watches.

During the summer’s heat, sub night is a welcome change from pizza night. Although it’s easy to make your own toasted subs by using your oven’s broiler. There’s no magic to it. Simply toast the bread under the broiler, remove, top with meat and cheese, and return to the oven until the cheese is bubbling. Finish by garnishing with your favorties.

    We do a lot of wraps too, Summer! I absolutely love them, and they’re lower in carbs, too, I think.

    Another fun twist to sandwiches that we do quite often is roll all the goodies in a tortilla. Tortillas come in so many fun colors and (healthy) flavors right now, it’s an easy and welcome alternative to plain, square bread.
