Random Food Fridays - Easy Pesto Aioli

Friday night has become date night for myself and Mr. Dwayne. This might be one of the reasons my Random Food Friday posts have become a little irregular. Date night usually consists of a nice meal and some fun errands. Don't ask me how, but Mr. Dwayne makes errands fun. We can't be the only long-term couple that gets excited about a trip to Costco or the farmers' market.

This week was super busy and work has supplied me with plenty of urgency. (Trying to quit that, by the way. The urgency, not the job.) We had already eaten so many lunches and dinners out this week that we decided what we wanted for date night was a simple night at home. Here we have chicken thighs again. (Costco has now has organic boneless, skinless chicken thighs.) I simply seasoned them well with salt, pepper and garlic powder and seared them off in a large cast iron skillet with a little olive oil. What made this meal yummy was the assembly of sandwich components. 

These made for one fine sammy:
Bella Bru sour dough
Perfectly ripe avocado
Perfectly ripe tomato
Sweet red onions
A little lettuce
and (drum roll, please...)
Pesto Aioli

So, borrowing from this post, stir together equal parts pesto and mayo and spread generously.

One of the reasons I like to enjoy really good sandwiches in the privacy of my own home.
