Remember how I love sandwiches? And I posted this fancy recipe? Well, sometimes, a three-ingredient sandwich is even more satisfying than a ten-ingredient sandwich.

Conrad and I went to the movies last night, and instead of spending money on eating out, I packed us a little picnic and snuck it into the theater. I made sandwiches with herbed cream cheese, turkey, spinach, and cucumber, and I packed apples and baby carrots to munch. And that was the third meal I ate yesterday involving this herb cream cheese. Third.

Here's a delicious recipe for the best cucumber cream cheese sandwich you'll ever have.

Herbed cream cheese:
1 16 oz. container of cream cheese (I use nonfat), softened
Stir in
1 Tbsp of herbes de Provence or other Italian dried herb mixture
1/2 to 1 tsp of garlic salt

That's really all you need! You can add other seasoning if you like it (minced onion is good, as is parsley and dill). Spread on a bagel or on any kind of sandwich. Pictured above is toasted bread with the cream cheese and thinly sliced cucumber. So simple, so delish. For a more elaborate CCC sandwich, add other veggies like lettuce, tomato, sprouts, and onions, and some turkey or low sodium ham.

You'll thank me. In the comments.
