Roasted Tomato Caprese & Avocado Sandwich

“Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication”– Leonardo da Vinci. Do you agree? I do, I do, I completely do especially after making this simple sandwich. Although I love to eat complicated, laborious meals once in a while I almost always fall right on the floor for simple comforting meals. Have I mentioned about Andersen Bakery in any of my posts? If I have, you might already know that its my favorite go-to place for a hearty Want to know more about this recipe?
