Avocado Goat Cheese Sandwich

Ok, true confession! I am writing this post in the car on the way back from San Antonio.

Why you ask? Well, because we are driving back from GAME 7 of the San Antonio Spurs/Dallas Mavericks.. which by the way Spurs won!! Woot Woot.

Do you consider yourself to be a spontaneous person? If not, do you wish you were?

I am very much a type A personality. I don’t like a lot of change, I like things the way I like them and thats that. I like to have things planned out in advance so I know what to expect. If things come at me spontaneously I’m all thrown off my game.

Enter crazy story….

Its 7pm Saturday night, I just got back from “gettin my hair did” at Ulta, Mike looks at me and says. “Hey wanna go to San Antonio for the spurs game tomorrow?”

Whenever he asks questions like that my immediate response is no, if its less than 24 hours notice. Because… well.. we need to plan! {i know.. i’m ridiculous}

But I was feeling oh.. I don’t know… crazy. We had a little bit of discussion about if its in the budget, who’s going to watch the dog, what do we do with cason etc.? And decided.. what the heck.. we are rarely spontaneous like that anymore.

We packed everything up and were on the road in 30 minutes driving to San Antonio.

I know.. I’m seriously in shock I did it too but it was so fun.

So, that is why I am writing this post in the car… I feel like I’m living on the edge. 🙂 baha.. I’m so pathetic if thats living on the edge.

Ok, I might be pathetic but this Mashed Avocado Goat Cheese Sandwich is not. In fact, its anything but pathetic, in fact its totally going to rock your socks off!

If you’ve been around here a while you know that I am obsessed with using three things.. avocado.. goat cheese.. and roasted tomatoes. Well, I finally came to my senses and put these powerhouse flavors together into one amazing open faced sandwich.

It is seriously the perfect quick lunch. I made the roasted cherry tomatoes the day before so literally all I had to do for lunch was toast the bread and mash the avocado. I promise if you bring this sandwich to work people will think you are a gourmet chef because of beautiful looks. The best is, only you will know how easy it is and get to chow down on it while everyone else eats there lean cuisine or progresso soup!

    Hi, I saw this beautiful sandwich on Show Stopper Saturday and just had to come by. Avocado is one of our faves. I like to say it’s the new cheese! Great photos as well. Makes my mouth water.

    Krista, I love how you wrote this while in the car! You are just awesome! I am totally a spontaneous kind of person, too. I love how you did this whole creation with the goat cheese and everything else!! Absolutely gorgeous, pinning!

    1. Krista

      The funny thing is I totally was thinking of you when I was writing this because I KNOW you are such a spontaneous person. I thought Gloria would totally do something like this. 🙂

      So glad you liked the sandwich girl, and thanks for the pin sweet friend!

  6. Julie @ This Gal Cooks

    I am so darn spontaneous it ain’t even funny! Well, maybe it is. I love change and get bored with the same ole same ole stuff. But at the same time, I do like to plan vacations and stuff like that because I need to get what the heck is going to go on planned out in my head!

    LOVE this recipe, Krista!

  7. Sarah@WholeandHeavenlyOven

    Oh, man this sandwich looks amazing. I love open-faced sandwiches, because why would you want to hide such a fantastic filling?? 😉 Avocado, goat cheese, and roasted cherry tomatoes sounds like a combination made in heaven. So want this gorgeous sandwich for lunch today! pinned. 🙂

    1. Krista

      You are so right as soon as you put that other piece of bread on top 1.) you are adding more carbs and 2.) your covering up all the pretty stuff. 🙂 So glad you liked it Sarah! Thanks for pin girl!

  8. Ashley | Spoonful of Flavor

    Open faced sandwiches really are the best, especially when they involve avocado and goat cheese! Sounds like you had a great time at the Spurs game, way to be spontaneous! I’m not good about that, I like to plan everything.

    1. Krista

      I know right!

      haha… I’m the same way Ashley but it was fun just to do something without plans for once. 🙂

  9. Chris @ Shared Appetite

    Hahaha Type A personalities unite!!! I totally feel you with feeling anxious about spontaneity. It freaks me out a little too, since I always ALWAYS want to have a plan! What a fun little last minute road trip though! And these open faced sandwiches look amazing! A perfect spring lunch!

    1. Krista

      It was seriously a blast.. plus game 7!!! I mean I know its the first round and all but the spurs mavs rivalry is crazy! Plus I got to see mark cuban. 🙂 So you enjoy the sandwich Chris!

  10. Mike@TheIronYou

    Krista you should open a sandwich shop or a food truck or something; seriously, you make the most awesome sandwiches I’ve ever laid my eyes on.
    And I need me some of that avocado + goat cheese cream, sounds too good to pass up!

    1. Krista

      haha… one of my secret desires to be on the Ultimate Food Truck Race and travel around the country! How fun would that be!

      P.S you totally just made my day with that comment, huge compliment coming from you Mike!
