By 300 Sandwiches
This was a good week. The hard copies of our book, “300 Sandwiches: A Multilayered Love Story, with Recipes” have arrived. In between wedding planning, CrossFitting, yogaing, book launching, app building, and cooking, E and I celebrated.
The night I got my first bound copies, we retreated home to celebrate the fact that a book based on this blog—which you lovely readers have supported and encouraged—will be in bookstores. That. is. major!
We had a box of Cristal—yes the Champagne mentioned in all of those raps songs, and yes it comes in a box–sitting on our counter for at least two years. We have no idea where it came from. No idea if someone had sent it to us for our engagement or if a dinner party guest had dropped it off as a “thank you for the grub” gift. We finally put it on ice that night. And yes, it tastes just as good as Jay Z said it did (that is, until he boycotted the brand and launched his own brand of bubbly).
To go with the Champagne, I made a quick pear, apple and gorgonzola grilled cheese. The crisp sweetness of the pear and apple with the bitter creaminess of the cheese, all held together with drizzled honey. Sliced into quarters, these made tasty snacks for E and I before our celebratory dinner of dry aged steaks, farrow, and roasted tomatoes. All of that complimented the Cristal quite well.
Frankly, I could wash down all of my grilled cheese sandwiches with Cristal. And my Italian subs. And my scrambled egg breakfast wraps. And my ice cream sandwiches… and my…..
Happy Friday, y’all. And thank you as always for your support of 300!
