Strawberry, Goat Cheese and Arugula Sandwiches

Strawberry, Goat Cheese and Arugula Sandwiches

School is out which means I’m surrounded by kids eating kid food. I saw this recipe at my local grocery store and thought it sounded wonderful. No hotdogs or mac and cheese for me. I’m going to make myself this sassy, sophisticated, easy sandwich instead. In fact, I might even get out of my work-out clothes and put on a dress. Happy grown-up eating!
