Loaded Roasted Pepper Hummus Sandwich

Loaded Roasted Pepper SandwichIt is hard for me to convey just how spectacular the combination of these flavors are.  The only thing I have been able to come up with is, thats so good, you will want to eat it even when you are pregnant and so sick the though of a sip of water makes you want to hurl.

Because really, that is what I associate with this sandwich.  Three times over (baby 1,2, and 3), I was sick the entire 9 months of my pregnancy. As in, I threw up in the delivery room bathroom a few hours before my daughter was born because even then, I was still puking.

In an effort to make me ANYTHING that I could keep down, my husband handed me this sandwich when I was still in the early stages of pregnancy #1.  Needless to say I was skeptical.  I will spare you the details of what happened when I was finished with it, but I will never forget how amazing it tasted.  Fresh, creamy, tangy, crunchy-it was outstanding.  Once I was my non-pregnant self again, I made sure to make the sandwich the exact same way to try and replicate that joy.  It was even better than I imagined!  And when I was prego again, it was often the only thing that sounded good, regardless of wether I could keep it down or  not.  I mean, just LOOK at that sandwich!  Does it not make your mouth water??
