    [​IMG]
    Serves 4

    Ingredients
    4 small beets
    2 tablespoons
    olive oil
    2 bunches spinach, trimmed (about 12 cups)

    4 ounces goat cheese
    1/4 cup chopped raisins

    3. Meanwhile, combine the goat cheese, raisins, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a small bowl.
    4. Divide the sliced beets, spinach, and goat cheese spread among the rolls.

    I'm sorry but I didn't see any that appealed to me. I love bacon and tomato sandwiches with avocado but c'mon, 8 slices of bacon for 4 sandwiches? I use 6 or 8 slices for one sandwich. :)

    We are not fond of sandwiches now unlike before when our afternoon snacks were mostly sandwiches. We even bought a cheese sandwich griller that is still working until now. Our usual fare was ham and scrambled egg with lettuce or cucumber and mayonnaise, of course. But sometimes we also have sandwiches in the morning and that would be bacon with mayonnaise. The crisp bacon is one of my favorites.

    I wonder why we don't eat sandwiches anymore at home. Maybe it is the side effect of the fastfoods where you can order sandwiches anytime particularly hamburgers. That's a paradigm shift in our afternoon snack.

    You can change the amount of ingredients you add, if you wish you can add more bacon, it's all up to you. ;)
