DIY Chicken, Bacon and Cheese Club Sandwich

20140531-093634.jpg

 

I always wanted to make a club sandwich. I mean, a proper club sandwich with all the works. Every time I ate a sandwich from Cactus or Chocolate Royale, I would say to myself, ‘Omo, you need to make one of these; how hard can it be?” And then my day came. I went grocery shopping with my brother and my friend on Tuesday; and decided there and then that I would shop for all the ingredients. It was so worth it :).

It’s really easy to make and you will wonder (like I did), why you didn’t try this sooner. Here’s what I used;

 

Sliced bread – toasted golden brown

Cheddar Cheese slices

Smoked Chicken – deboned and sliced

Bacon – put in a non-stick pan and fry until brown and crispy, then slice

Lettuce – washed and sliced

Onions – washed and sliced

Tomatoes – washed and sliced

Boiled eggs – sliced

Butter

Mayonnaise

(yeah I know, the calories – just stay with me)

Butter one side of one toast slice. Lay 2 or 3 bacon slices and place the cheese slice on top of the bacon.

Place a toast slice on top and spread mayonnaise on the side facing up.

Lay lettuce, tomato, onions and boiled egg slices and cover with another toast, ‘mayoed’ side down.

Lay the chicken slices next and cover with a toast slice, buttered side down.

Drive a toothpick through either angles of the sandwich and slice through the other 2 angles.

Get a hot or cold beverage and eat your DIY Cheese, Bacon and Chicken Club Sandwich to your heart’ content

….and then work it all out tomorrow. We’ll maybe not just tomorrow …hehehehe

I think you pull this off as well. Don’t you?

I’ve got a cheesecake treat coming right up. Wanna stay updated? Please follow my blog and share with your friends.

Have great weekend guys

Ok. So even though I have not been blogging actively, I still try to get my daily dose of inspiration from Pinterest, Craftgawker and a couple of my favourite blogs and I see that people are really into some serious projects. Anyways, I couldn’t resist getting my hands on Francesca’s DIY Chain Layer Necklace. I just had to make me one. Check out her awesome projects at Fall for DIY.

My DIY Graffitti Doodle Wall

Doodle 6

I always somehow wind up writing my blog posts on Friday nights before I leave the office and I’m not sure why. I should really get a life. But trust me, this one’s worth it. So I just got my room repainted in mostly white and while I love the ‘white makes the room look bigger’ effect,ย  I just knew I had to add something to it.ย  Yesterday was May Day – a public holiday (yay! in arrears) and what better way to spend it than to have my very own graffitti doodle wall? Yeah, I thought so too.

I enlisted Ayo in my doodle army and off we boldly went, into the graffiti land of no return…hahahaha . It was crazy amazing. Trust me, you can’t go wrong on this one. I can’t exactly give a tutorial because it’s really up to you how big or small you wanna go. Just go through the pictures to see how we went about it and ask me questions in the comments section if you have any.

Ok, I promised myself I would be out of the office before 10pm, so I gotta run ๐Ÿ™‚
