Kurt’s Zucchini Sandwich

My blog is named ” Make the best of everything”.  The slogan at the top of this page states ” A blog. Where I show you the things that I make!”

Well folks.  I did not make this zucchini sandwich.

In the midst of all of my ” Low Carb” recipes floating around Pinterest, my older brother Kurt made this  scrumptious looking zucchini sandwich. He wanted to join in on all the fun by sharing his weeknight dinner with the world!

I have two wonderful brothers.  An older brother, Kurt ( you know. the creator of that sandwich up there.)  And Brad, my younger brother. ( who is really and excellent chef. I need to get Brad to make something for my blog. You would be impressed)

I grew up in the Chicago suburbs with two brothers.  I migrated out to Iowa with my husband,  but my brothers stayed in the Chicago area.

One big difference between us now, is that they always call their evening meal DINNER and I now, sometimes call it SUPPER

Ok, back the story of the Zucchini sandwich.

My brother Kurt invested in a vegetable co-op this spring.  In return, he receives a box of fresh vegetables every week.  This is cool because Kurt actually lives in the CITY of Chicago ( not to be confused with the 100 or so suburbs) and it can be hard to find fresh produce that is locally grown.

Kurt cut a round zucchini into slices and made a pair of tuna sandwiches for a quick and healthy weeknight dinner.  ( or supper )

He made his tuna salad the way he prefers it and added a fresh tomato slice as well.

This is similar to my cucumber sub, but I actually feel this works out better.  This sandwich is not as hard to ” sink your teeth” into as the cucumber sub.

But really Kurt, this was a great contribution to our world.  I am looking forward to making one.  Because all of my readers know, I LOVE zucchini!!
