British Sandwich Week

Wednesday, May 24, 2017
Last week was British Sandwich Week (14th - 20th May) and annoyingly I'm late to party with this post but better late than never and after the horrendous events of earlier this week, I didn't want to post anything until now.

Today's post is all about nostalgia and delicious food in particular cheese, is there anything better than that combination? I was very kindly sent a huge sandwich hamper filled with cheese, bunting and sandwich essentials ft. Babybel, The Laughing Cow, Leerdammer and many other yummy goodies. If you follow me on Instagram (@ofbeautyand) then you will have seen the unboxing and a sneak peek!
I haven't had Babybel or Laughing Cow cheese since I was in high school as I used to have them in sandwiches pretty much every single day at school. We have so many memories attached to food, not just emotional ones but memories of times in our lives and to me Laughing Cow and Babybel products are just so nostalgic as I grew up having them in my lunch box in primary school almost every day.

I've created a couple of sandwiches that my child self wouldn't have had but my adult self loves! As a child I'd just have Laughing Cow cheese triangles on a sandwich or a grated cheese sandwich (my mum always used to say to me that I'd turn into cheese as I ate so much of it!) or I would have a Babybel in my lunch box as a snack along with delicious Daim bars, penguin biscuits or animal crackers - I'd love to go back to the 90's, minus the glitter hair mascara, mood rings and cheese discos *macarena anyone?*
Instead I've made sandwiches that are so nostalgic but more 'adult' than I would have had as a child. I love bagels and I definitely prefer them to plain white bread so I always start with a toasted bagel. I've added spread cheese as well as The Laughing Cow 'light' and Leerdammer cheese because the more cheese the better. I also love adding iceberg lettuce, rocket and fresh herbs to my sandwiches such as basil or dill.

I haven't had some of these products for almost ten years and they bought back lots of school memories and I forgot how creamy and delicious the Laughing Cow triangles were and I can't wait to try the other flavours - who knew they had a blue cheese option! My mum might be right that after all of these yummy sandwich goodies, I might turn into cheese!

What are your favourite sandwich fillings? Do you have any school day lunch favourites? Do you like any of the products I've featured?

  9. Okay now why don't I receive cheese-filled parcels, huh?! Cheese sandwiches are the best and I always have laughing cow triangles in my fridge - the extra light ones are perfect for Slimming World as are the light babybels.
