Hopefully this Friday finds you well, and on your way to a relaxing weekend in the sun, or at least away from the confines and stress of the workplace.
A few weeks ago, I needed a weekend to get away from every day life in Los Angeles, to clear my mind and celebrate my birthday without any of my daily distractions. Oddly enough, the day I was leaving for my trip, a package arrived on my steps. Mysteriously stamped with “#Sandwich” I was curious what this could possibly be.
People know I like sandwiches, so maybe this was a funny gift from a friend or family member?
Turns out that the people over at Oscar Mayer must have been reading this blog and intuiting about my personal life to know I needed a little get away, so they sent me this massive box with their #Sanewich survival kit.
Oscar Mayer is aiming for you, parents, and maybe you soon-to-be parents too. Not only dealing with the insanities of work, but also the chaos that can come with being a full time parent too.
Luckily, the only thing I parent is my sweet, amazing dog. And this weekend, we had a dogsitter, so we made some sandwiches from the Deli Fresh Honey Ham, Deli Fresh Mesquite Smoked Turkey, and Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and set out on our way.
As we road tripped up the 5 Freeway, the sun set around us as mountains cleared and the farming plains opened up before us. As the sun hit the horizon, we pulled over to a rest stop and ate our sandwiches.
We weren’t even halfway through our trip, but being outside of Los Angeles, away from the hustle and bustle, and staring off into farmland as the sunset, I actually breathed a sigh of relief.
It was also nice to not have to find some roadside fast food place to order from too. Pulling the sandwiches from our sandwich bag, we each split a sandwich so we could try both the turkey and the ham.
So if you’re looking for a good sandwich companion on a road trip, or just looking for a way to have a great sandwich and unwind after a rough day at work, why not put together your own Sanewich with some great Oscar Mayer products?
Until next time, Readers…
P.S. – Come back Friday for a great Fourth of July post about my favorite hot dogs.
Disclosure: I received a fifty dollar gift card for a night out to enjoy a #Sanewich, a lunch tote, as well as supplies for sandwiches from Oscar Mayer.
