Taking a sandwich for a walk

There’s no such thing as a walk that’s not improved by a snack. I took an apple with me to the post box this morn­ing and a piece of cheese to the Polling Sta­tion on Thursday. The best kind of walk­ing snack is one that can fit in your pock­et — none of that rucksack/bag/basket palava. The finest pock­et food I know is a cor­rup­tion of a tart I learned how to make in Par­is.

When I was four­teen I was sent on a French exchange. I learned two things and they’ve both stuck to me like vel­cro. One, very weirdly, is the sub­junct­ive form of the verb ‘pouvoir’. The oth­er is the recipe for ‘tarte aux tomates’. I loved that tart. It was a beguil­ing com­bin­a­tion of the light­est short­crust pastry, a hint of creamy French mus­tard, gruy­ere cheese and toma­toes that had nev­er even seen a fridge, let alone been inside one.

Trans­form­ing that tart into a walk­ing com­pan­ion has made it even bet­ter.

Use soft white rolls — any­thing more chewy will be trans­formed into poly­styrene ceil­ing tiles once they’re cooked. I’ve aban­doned the French mus­tard in the ori­gin­al recipe and always use fiery Eng­lish mus­tard. The heat of the oven quells its rage, but it will still make your nose tingle hap­pily.

Spread a thin­nish lay­er of mus­tard on each side of the roll — trust me. Lay­er on chunks of mature ched­dar, sliced toma­toes and a few basil leaves. Wrap your roll tightly in two lay­ers of sil­ver paper and heat in the oven for half an hour at 175 degrees C.

Remove from the oven and stick it straight in your pock­et in its sil­ver wrap­ping. If you can fit in a flask of cof­fee too, so much the bet­ter.

It doesn’t mat­ter how many or how few miles you walk before you eat it. The French tart sand­wich will nev­er let you down.

If You are con­cerned in pur­chas­ing medic­a­ments online, now may be the peri­od to do so. So the next mat­ter is where can you find inform­a­tion that is reli­able. You can get such inform­a­tion fast and con­veni­ently by going online. There are many ill­nesses such as schizo­phrenia which have no cure. One of the most pop medi­cine is Via­gra. What about com­par­is­on between Cial­is versus Levitra and ? Nearly each adult knows about . Oth­er ques­tion we have to is . The symp­toms of sexu­al dis­orders in men switch on lack of sexu­al fantas­ies. Not­with­stand­ing sex is not vital for good sound­ness, it’s cer­tainly good for any­one. So if you are exper­i­en­cing erectile prob­lems, it is essen­tial to see a cer­ti­fied phys­i­cian forth­with for a com­plete medi­cin­al test­ing. Cer­tainly, online phar­macy can hands-down help you for solv­ing your all per­son­al dif­fi­culties.
