Easy Open-Faced Sammies


When it’s hot outside (and inside!) and dinnertime rolls around, the last thing I want to do is slave over a hot stove in the kitchen for an hour making dinner. In an effort to try new dishes and save some time… I whipped up these oped-faced sammies in about 15 minutes. They’re super easy, the combinations are endless and they taste delicious! They’re best enjoyed outside on the patio, trust me.

Check out all the ingredients that I used below… 


Easy Open-Faced Sammies

Serves: 2

Fried Egg Sammy

1 slice of bread (I used sourdough, toasted and rubbed with garlic)

1 handful of arugula (dressed with balsamic dressing)

1/2 small heirloom tomato

2 slices of prosciutto

1 egg, sunny-side up

Turkey & Cheddar Sammy

1 slice of bread (I used sourdough, toasted and rubbed with garlic)

3 slices of peppered turkey

1/2 small heirloom tomato

1 slice of cheddar cheese

Grilled Peaches

Slice peaches about 1/2 inch thick. Lightly drizzle with agave nectar and grill for a few minutes on each side. 

New Bathrooms!!

We have a l-o-n-g list of things we want to do in the house. It seems that when we cross one item off the list, a few more get added! We’ve finished our living room project (which I have yet to share on the blog!) and before we tackle the kitchen countertops, we have two small bathrooms upstairs that we’re going to renovate. We’ve already picked out all our supplies and can’t wait to get started (we’re buying everything from Lowe’s)! We’re getting new flooring, painting the walls, adding a new vanity, subway tiles and new hardware. We’re going with white/gray tones for a very neutral and classic look. I just can’t wait for this project to be finished! Right now the bathrooms have green linoleum and green marbled countertops… I will not be sad to see those go!

Family Photos – The Schmitt’s

Last weekend our friends popped into town for a bit (they live in Bend, OR!) and we snuck over to Gabriel Park so I could snap some family photos for them. Just when you think this little family couldn’t be any cuter… they’re expecting baby #2 in October (and it’s a girl!). We love the Schmitt’s!!
