Roast Beef and Goat Cheese Sandwich with Pesto

These sandwiches came almost out of necessity. I offered to bring sandwiches for our ski day, and asked my dad and brother what they liked. I couldn't get a straight answer out of them, so I fudged with whatever sounded good. As I was wandering around the store, I spotted some sliced roast beef with slices of Havarti next to each other in the deli case. I quickly picked some up, then made my way to the lettuce section to pick out some greens. A container of red pepper pesto caught my eye and stealthily made its way into my shopping basket. Same thing happened with a round of goat cheese. Crazy how those things happen, huh?

Anyways, I thought the sandwiches were a hit. A few weeks later, I made the same sandwich, but used basil pesto instead of red pepper and discovered another great sandwich. Feel free to sub in some Havarti for the goat cheese. It's delicious either way!

And you know what, I think I'm going to have this for lunch today. YUM!
