This week is flying by. I can hardly believe that tomorrow is already Friday. I’ve had a combination busy week with lazy days mixed in. These cold winter days make me feel like I could just curl up in front of the fireplace with a stack of books and a pile of yarn and knitting needles and never leave.

Today I made Jeff and I these toasted subs for lunch. SO yummy and easy. And…you can never go wrong with bacon. I mean, ya just can’t. If you don’t feel like baking the chicken yourself,  the pre-made rotisserie chicken from your grocery store deli would work wonderfully here…or, if you have leftover chicken in the fridge, now you have something to do with it.

accoutrements for 3 toasted subs:

2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts cooked completely OR 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder mixed with 1/4 teaspoon salt

freshly ground black pepper

1/2 of a large onion, sliced thin and fried in 1 Tablespoon olive oil until golden

1/3 cup real mayonnaise

2 Tablespoons grainy brown “country” Dijon mustard

1 long loaf baguette bread

1 lb bacon, fried until crispy

8 slices sharp cheddar cheese

Prepare ingredients as indicated above. Sprinkle the cooked chicken with the garlic powder/salt mixture and some freshly ground pepper. Cut the baguette into 3 equal pieces, and then slice each piece horizontally. Gently remove the soft inside from the baguette leaving a 3/4 inch shell.
