Jun 12, 2015 – [Friday] Anything Goes: Sandwich

Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, taken on November 15, 2013

When I did (part of) my PhD in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, one of the best places to go for lunch is a sandwich shop called La Mie d’Oli. Looking up the word “mie” in French, it means “inside of bread”…I’m astonished that there’s a word for it in French! Anyway, there’s always a long line-up at the shop during lunch time, and their sandwiches are oh-so-very-delicious! My favourites would have to be Le Breton (chicken chunks, cheese, bacon, lettuce, and peppercorn sauce) or Le Calypso (smoked salmon, mozzarella, shallots, lettuce, and salad dressing). I think this was Le Breton…though it might actually be Le Calypso, I don’t remember. I might have to make a trip to LLN during my July travels just to have another taste of these sandwiches…

April 04, 2014 – Breakfast #2

I got up unconventionally early this morning and made breakfast for myself. It’s been a while since I’ve had a REAL breakfast. Toast, an egg, a slice of bologna, a cup of yogurt, a banana, and a cup of green tea – good start to a super long day. I gotta get myself disciplined enough to wake up early more often.
