19 Feb Flying turkey sandwich… oops!!!
Eating healthy is a good thing for body and soul. Today, I made a delicious heated sandwich. Two slices of five grain bread, sliced turkey, provolone cheese and some craisins sprinkled inside to melt and give a hint of sweetness. Yummy to the tummy!
Spreading a little butter in the pan, I assembled the ingredients, turned on the heat and waited for the cheese to begin melting. I prepared to adorn a white plate with my wonderful creation. Patience is required when cooking. No high heat or the sandwich would burn.
A few minutes passed. I turned the bread from one side to the other. Yes, this was looking better with each flip of the sandwich. Browning nicely on both sides.
Now was the time to turn off the burner and transfer the food to the waiting plate.
Hmm… maybe I should cut the sandwich in half while it is in the pan. Yes, I used the spatula and attempted to create two sections. Melting cheese began flowing from between the slices of bread.
OOPS!!!! While cutting the beautiful creation in half, one side became a little too slippery and went flying through the air. What a sight!!! One half of my delicious sandwich surfed the frying pan, scooped up like a surfer on a wave and went flying across the counter. Slap, it hit the side of the refrigerator and slid from top to bottom leaving cheese the whole way down.
Splat!! Landing on the kitchen floor, my first instinct for the food I had craved so badly was, “Hey, there’s the 5 second rule. I could pick it up real quick and still eat it.”
No, that would not make sense, especially if I ended up eating some yucky germ and became sick.
Oh, well!! After a few seconds of disappointment, I laughed aloud.
“Lord, I guess I wasn’t supposed to eat a whole sandwich today. Maybe all my body needs is one half.”
I ate the delicious half and that was all I needed to be full.
Tomorrow is another day and there is more turkey and cheese in the refrigerator. Maybe I will try again.
Have you ever experienced something as silly as a flying sandwich? If so, do you think there was a message from God in the mishap? I believe God sends us nudges and messages in many different ways. Today, my message came in the form of a flying turkey sandwich.
Enjoy a blessed week,
