a behind-the-scenes look at my busy calendar
between furthering sandwichesimade’s interests in washington, devoting time to my hobbies and personal causes, and sandwichesimade’s day-to-day management my schedule can get pretty nutty.
this is what a typical day looks like:

9:00 AM - crossfit
9:30 AM - sip on a protein shake and read fan mail

12:00 PM - eat a salad and respond to fan mail
1:00 PM - the sandwichesimade weekly editorial staff mtg. (agenda this week: a) 30 mins - what’s our public stance on lettuce wraps? b) 30 mins - why aren’t we riding the asmr content wave?)
2:00 PM - pottery class
2:30 PM - practice upcoming TED talk tentatively titled “how becoming an amateur potter helped me become a better sandwich chef and lover”

we all got a bit tipsy at dinner on this particular day and decided afterward to go to karaoke where michelle and i sang a vengaboys duet.
here is how i made a torta of sorts.
1. make some refried beans with canned beans, onions/serrano pepper/cumin/chili powder, and lime the night before.
2. make a coleslaw with some cabbage, dried fruit, greek yogurt, honey, and lime the night before.
3. smear taco seasoning on some chicken thighs and cook them in a pan the night before.
4. gaze longingly at the delicious meal you ate last night.
5. slice a tomato and some onions. keep the top of the tomato around so you have a hat to shade you from the sun this summer.
6. make chipotle mayo with some chipotle peppers, mayo, salt, and lime.
7. spread your wings and slather some mayo on two slices of bread
8. toast your mayo-ed bread while preparing a piñata of a toaster lobbyist (not pictured).
9. if you suspect the spirits have encoded a message in your chipotle mayo toast, now is the time to visit the local fortune teller.
10. refried beans are a great way to make any food look like someone pooped on it.
11. repeatedly drop slices of your taco-seasoned-chicken on your toast from a height of five feet until it looks like the image below.
12. tomato tomahto
13. give the tomatos a sweet hairdo with your coleslaw.
14. throw some onions on that torta.
15. gaze longingly at pickled jalapenos that won’t be ready for another month.
16. a torta of sorts
