We’re on the home stretch to the end of summer! Has school started yet where you live? My boys go back next Wednesday. I’m excited and sad all at the same time. I’m ready to get back in a schedule but then I’m sad to get back in a schedule too!
One thing I will gladly give up, is making big lunches at home during the summer. My boys seem to eat a WHOLE lot more when they’re home. I will happily take over lunch box duty for the next several months.
But the good news from making big lunches? I found the world’s best sandwich recipe!!
Cheesy, cheese, and more cheese! Look at that sandwich, full of sliced chicken, mozzarella cheese, Mezzetta Everything Spread, and a yummy pesto mayo. It’s just ooey, gooey deliciousness in between two slices of bread – SO amazingly delicious!

I am in love with Mezzetta. You want a good sandwich, you HAVE to use the Everything Spread. I love the name, because just like it says, you can use it on everything. From crackers, to sandwiches, to straight off a spoon. Um, yeah, it’s delish and it’s one of my favorite things EVER.
And pesto? Their pesto is the best! I mixed it with some mayo and it makes the creamiest pesto spread. I love that Mezzetta products are available everywhere you buy your groceries, nationwide. They’re so easy to find! You can’t beat the freshness and quality. Yum!
