Take 5 Clover Leaf Challenge Part 2: Updated!

It's dinner time, you are making something for the family, and one person can't eat it. Or won't eat it. So you decide to cook up something fast to keep 'em happy.

I do that all the time. Often Kevin and I want pasta, or something with beef, and John can't eat it. He prefers a sandwich and a salad so I whip that up for him.

The five minute challenge made me curious. Could I cook one of the recipes while I also had pizza bubbling in the oven and still do it in five minutes? Would it work? Taste good?

You betcha.

tuna sandwich


These Montatuna sandwiches were really good. I am not partial to tuna sandwiches, to be honest. Often they are kind of dry, but I don't want to add a lot of mayo to them and make them all saucy. I'm not a sauce kinda girl either. (I know, so picky huh?) The lemon pepper flavoring, plus a little mayo, was just right. Normally I'd never dip a sandwich in egg either, but it added some flavor. Yum!

Start to finish, I did it in just over 5 minutes, mostly because I was anal about getting just the right toast quality for the bread, with the heat not too high or low, and watching it carefully. I saved the leftovers for lunch tomorrow, anticipating that they might be real tasty cold in a lunch box!
