Marinated Mozzarella, Tomato, and Pesto Toasted Sandwich

Today was one of those days.

It was a fun day, with many sweet moments, but there was also a big tumble, a scraped chin and a fat lip. Boo for little boy acrobatics.

On days like this, I don't want to mess with a big production of a dinner. Bring on the toasted sandwich.

Take some fresh ciabatta loaves from the deli, cut in half, stick under the broiler for a few minutes. Rub fresh cut garlic on the OUTSIDE of the bread slices, so that you get a subtle lick of garlic when you bite into the sandwich. So good.

Slather with pesto, layer with marinated mozzarella, thick tomato slices, lettuce leaves, and avocado.

 It's a thick sandwich, so you have to squish it to eat it. Squish it. Devour.

Even little boys with scraped chins will stop fussing long enough to chew.
And maybe even smile for a minute or two.
