#QuarantineMeals week 9 is here! This week we take it back to a classic, the simplest of the simplest meals you can ever imagine… the legendary sandwich! Let me tell you something, don’t let a meal that has something in between slices of bread steer that creative passion away from you.

It’s more than ham and cheese between some bread, those ingredients are simply the starting point… let your imagination run wild with this! 

Most of my life, I’ve been on the go, so sandwiches have always been a go to meal sprinkled throughout my weekly menu. I’ve eaten sandwiches sooo much that it’s become the norm lol. That’s why it’s always been important for me to switch them up.

There’s levels to these #QuarantineMeals; Whether I’m making a sheet pan meal, BBQing some chicken or enjoying something traditional, I’m trying my best to give you some variety. I’m not a professional chef nor do I claim to be one, so don’t feel as if you need to be a chef when creating some of these meals. Or if you are a chef (much respect) don’t pay attention to any of these meals I created because I will never be as good as you. Haha

I just love food. =) 

That being said we hope everyone is staying safe and adapting to what seems to be the new normal. With lots of states opening back up, we’re glad that restaurants are opening up as well. Let’s remember to continue to practice social distancing and respect others’ personal space. 

If you have some favorite meals that you’d love to share, drop a line or send a photo! Hit me up and let me know what you’re cooking, and if you like we can featured it on next week’s edition of #QuarantineMeals!

I hope you all enjoy these #QuarantineMeals. Please let me know how they taste and if you’ve enjoyed creating them! #STAYHOME

  4. Add black forest ham deli slices, followed by salami slices and pastrami deli slices.
  5. Add layer of spinach leaves.
  6. Top off with jalapeno slices and artichoke hearts (prior to adding artichoke hearts I recommend cutting them into thinner pieces).

Recently I chopped it up with legendary recording artists MC Ren (N.W.A.) and Tha Chill (Compton’s Most Wanted). They just released their new single “LOST” which is also featured on Tha Chill’s new album “FO HEAD” (available on all digital platforms). 

The interview, which is featured on the HOODtalks Podcast (which is produced by DJ EFN & Myself). This is a podcast dedicated to powerful talks, that educate, inspire and inform. In our conversation we spoke about the golden era of hip-hop and the disconnect between this generation of artists. We also chopped it up about food, specifically their #QuarantineMeals!
