Last night’s dinner was the easiest Sunday night dinner E and I have ever managed.

Sandwich #79–“Super Morning” Steak and Eggs Breakfast Sandwich
Rating: What the heck is more perfect on Super Bowl morning than a steak and eggs breakfast sandwich? A manly sandwich, made for linebackers and defensive ends and free safetys and…. um… lanky, surfer boyfriends like E!
Sandwich #56–“Not That Big a Pot” Meatball Sandwiches
Sometimes, I can follow instructions too literally. For example, I have a soft voice, one which has the same timbre as ambient noise. This means when I’m in a crowded restaurant or loud office, it’s hard for others to hear me because the tone of my voice isn’t high pitched like a little girl or […]
Sandwich #34–“Fall Dinner Party” Bacon, Arugula and Manchego Cheese Panini
Fall arrived this weekend. E and I wanted to commemorate the event, along with his cousin’s birthday, with a dinner party at our place.

Sandwich #31–“Dirty Dishes” Sausage and Egg Sandwich

It’s like being […]
Sandwich #26–“French Tuesdays” Croque Madame
“Croque madame,” E suggested over text message. “You eat ham?” I asked. I learn something new about my boyfriend every day. I’m not too fond of white creamy sauces (my thighs expand at the mere sight of them), nor was I looking forward to having to top this cheesy sandwich with a runny egg. But […]
Sandwich #19–“Working Late” Prime Rib Steak Sandwich with Caramelized Onions
E and I were putting in later hours at work. He was getting ready to launch a new product, and I had a number of after work events. Thursday night was the first opportunity I had all week to make dinner. I wanted to prepare something filling that would be great with red wine, because I […]
