The Sandwich can be a work of art. Sure it’s a quick lunch, an easy meal. Sometimes though, the sandwich is magnificent and well worth the extra time you spent on it. I have several different sandwiches I regularly like to make. All start with the base of homemade bread. Without the homemade bread, they simply wouldn’t be as good.
The Grilled Cheese.
If you use the soy vegan cheese or you use the regular dairy kind, the key is the homemade white bread.
I do this one in several different combinations. My favorite by far is the Jalapeno cheddar vegan cheese. It’s probably my favorite because it has a ton of flavor and it’s quick. If I make a grilled cheese for myself with other cheese, I try to combine a couple of cheese or I’ll add ina slice or two of tomato.
You know how to make a grilled cheese right? I probably don’t need to write this out but someone will ask… heat up the skillet, Butter one side of each of the bread slices, put on the skillet a slice of bread (buttered side down), place your fillings on that piece, top with the other slice of bread, buttered side up. When one side is done, flip over.
The Ultimate Tomato Sandwich
Doesn’t it look good up there.
You start with the Rye bread I had the recipe for last week. I give it a toasting in the toaster before it hits the broiler, just to make sure the bread is crunchy underneath. Saute onions and garlic, place these on the bread, place a large tomato slice over the onions, top with Feta or Soy substitute. Broil til it starts to get melty and brown.
Talk about a good sandwich.
These Monday recipes really make me hungry all over again. you can bet I’ll be baking some bread later so I can make sandwiches all week. Plus bread is good to bring to SPA in case I get stuck in my booth.
Rebekka is making a crazy afghan. All shapes and all sizes of squares in wool are needed. Go check out her blog for more info. I’m going to do my best to put together a few bright squares.
I found 2 little projects that had been sitting in my closet for a while.
These had been knitted before Boogie Baby was born, I jsut never sewed them up and crocheted an edging. Bad of me I know. They’re done now. They don’t fit boogie baby of course but I’m sure someone will have a baby soon that will need booties. I probably should make a sweater to match, then I’ll really be ahead of the game for the next friend that gets knocked up.
This is the saddest of the 2. This was knit all but the I cord edge and straps way back when I first created the Kidlet tank pattern. I think the pattern was made in 2003 or 4. I’m hoping for 2004, three years of languishing is a tad better than 4. I love this tank. I think I need to make an adult version for myself this year. If I do, you’ll be the first to know.
I put the zipper into my sweater over the weekend and took photographs of the process. As soon as I get the tutorial written out, I’ll put it up here.
