Well hello there! I am here in sunny Southern California! And I do mean SUN-NY! Sheesh it is so flippin hot. And humid. I was almost tempted to make sure I landed at the right airport, but now I’m sitting on my parents couch, so welp, I guess I did. But we are having one heck of a heat wave this week while I’m here.
I also had one hell of a crappy day yesterday. You may have seen the post? At about 10 am I went online to post another recipe (that will be coming soon, but I have none of the pictures for it!) and I went on this lil ole blog and noticed the header was gone. Instead of my cute little herb pots (like those? they’re new! ;)) it was some weird 404 warning image. So I got a little freaked and went hunting for how to fix it. I refreshed the page again and EVERYTHING WAS GONE EVERYTHING ALL THE THINGS EVERYTHING just gone. So I sort of/mildly/just barely PANICKED and SOBBED and panicked and sobbed. My husband, is a software engineer and tech support here at Foodie’s Diet Blog, was so busy for work he couldn’t help. Nooooo. So I spent about 4 hours uselessly clicking on random pages, refreshing my screen 3000 times (like it’s just going to magically all be fixed, nope) and called the real tech support. So a long story, well longer, they were able to do a system restore and I got everything back before last week. So all the posts I was working on or had posted within the last week? Gone. Just buy buy. So major booo on that one. But on the positive side (cup half full people… right) I didn’t lose everrrrrything, so I guess I’m winning. Maybe we can laugh about this in a century or so?
Moving on to happier subjects…
My parents are moving from our home town to Oregon in 3 weeks. So this is sort of my last chance to be home. sob. sob some more. (guess you lucked out with the happier subject, eh?) This is weird, I grew up here, and while we still have a ton of friends here, with no parents, no free place to stay. Yay for mooching off of the parents, huh? So my parents are moving and my dad is ALL KINDS OF STRESSED. I totally get it because moving is possibly the worst thing ever? So as a a treat on this impossibly hot day, I made him these.
All the treasures of a cobb sandwich, but on two pieces of crescent rolls. (finally! a happier subject amy! yeesh!) Yes please! A cobb salad has always been one of my favorites. But I suspect a cobb salad is the leading culpret when they tell you (whoever “they” is) that sometimes a salad can be worse for you than a burger. I’m thinking they were looking at you cobb salad. We get it, cobb salads are not the healthiest, but man are they goooood! Bacon, blue cheese, avocado, creamy dressing. Yup. You need cobb salads in your life. And today, today my friends, you can have them again. Because this cobb salad on, did I mention, soft and buttery crescent rolls is only 310 calories. 310. I think this recipe may be my favorite one to date, because it feels so wrong, yet it is so so right. so very right.
Do you remember this recipe? It is one of the most popular around these parts. So you’ll need to whip up another batch of it, then we’re adding blue cheese to it and using a very generous smear of it on this sandwich.
- 1 package crescent rolls- reduced fat- I used Pillsbury in a cardboard can
- ½ cup mayo substitute (avocado and greek yogurt)
- ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
- 8 oz or ½ pound turkey deli meat
- 8 slices bacon- cooked
- 1 tomato sliced- 8 slices
- Preheat oven to 350*
- Lay crescent roll dough triangles flat on a cookie sheet and bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown
- Meanwhile, stir crumbled blue cheese into mayo substitute
- Once baked, cool crescents enough to handle
- Spread a generous smear of avocado/greek yogurt/blue cheese mix on to 4 of the 8 triangles
- Layer the rest of ingredients to build sandwich
How was that for a tangent of a post? No don’t answer that! Answer me this, What salad would be your favorite to turn into a sandwich?
