My family loves it when I plan for DIY dinners like build-your-own tacos or nachos, make-your-own pizza, baked potato bar, and now submarine sandwich assembly. I love it too, because all of the family members take an active role in dinner preparation and everyone gets exactly what they want- which means no complaints at the dinner table!
The preparation for this dinner is pretty simple. I just start cleaning out my refrigerator. I already had washed leaf lettuce and sliced tomatoes leftover from our weekend cookout. Plus I had a package of already fried turkey bacon, that I use for my oldest daughter's school lunches. (She loves bacon wraps with fresh spinach for lunch). After that I started pulling out cheese slices, cold cuts, and condiments.
With the ingredients at the ready, I called in the troops and assisted everyone as they tailored the subs to their tastes.
No need for a step-by-step or a recipe here, so instead I have a couple of pictures of the finished product.
This is the creation of my youngest daughter. She starts pre-school tomorrow!
And here's my super-stacked sub, made complete with a layer of those home-canned pickle slices that I put up last month. YUM!
Now that I've got my family to help with dinner, I just need to figure out how to make them clean up after...
