Sandwich #194–“Hold the Greens” Three Cheese Grilled Cheese with Walnuts and Honey
I had a post a few weeks ago about why one should not order the plain white sandwich. Unless you’re E, and your girlfriend is making grilled cheese sandwiches with sauteed brussels sprouts and you despise the green veggies.
Sandwich #193–“Lunch Break” Tomato with Pesto and Goat Cheese
I love pumpkin, but I needed a break from the ubiquitous pumpkin flavored goods in our house—biscuits and whoopie pies and even creme brulee that E made a few nights ago. I may have to get my flapper dress for Halloween an extra size bigger at the rate I’m inhaling these sugary treats.
Sandwich #187–“Fall Harvest Beach Break” Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Corn Burgers with Tomato Jam
Rating: Last weekend was sunny and windy, so E hightailed it out of the house to go kitesurfing. He deserved it, the poor thing had been working 12 hours days. He needed a break.
Sandwich #180–“Wanderlust” Ham and Pineapple on Pretzel Roll
The weather is so delightful in New York City–it’s been a sky blue 70 degrees and sunny all week. But the sunshine got E and I thinking about our next vacation.
Sandwich #178—“People are Talking” Grilled Cheese and Pear Sandwich on Olive Bread
After I came out as the author of 300 Sandwiches in the New York Post last week, it seemed anyone with a computer had an opinion about the site. Who knew sandwiches could kick off an international discourse about gender and love?
Sandwich #177–“Baked at Halftime” Fried Green Tomato BLT
E and I differ on sports. He’s into hockey and the America’s Cup (nice win, Oracle!). I am a raging Chicago Bears fan.
Sandwich #176–“Third Time’s A Charm” Roasted Chicken, Sweet Potato Mash and Swiss Chard Leftovers ‘Wich
I’ve been trying to make this sandwich for two weeks! Finally, I got my ‘wich together!
Sandwich #175–“Indian Summer” Oven-Baked Fried Green Tomatoes with Feta and Pesto
The weekends are for slowing things down.
Sandwich #169–“Pick Pick Pick” Turkey, Fennel and Olive in a Pita
Oh no he didn’t!
Sandwich #163–“Make Sure to Get My Good Side” Vietnamese Steak Banh Mi
E and I got all glammed up for a photo shoot this morning. Our directive was to put on our best looks and love up on each other for the camera. Easy enough, right?
Sandwich #160 and #161–“Hurry Up” Elvis Sandwich, Two Ways
Whenever my guy friends ask about the blog, they get so judgmental. “How many sandwiches are you on?” they ask. I’ll explain. “You better hurry up! You’ll never get engaged at that pace!”
Sandwich #159–“Substitute for Tomatoes” Turkey Pear Club Sandwich
I’ve been trying to figure out how to make a club sandwich that E would like.
Sandwich #157–“Burnt to a Crisp” Shrimp Banh Mi
E teases me because I like my food well done. “You like your food nuked until all flavor has exited,” he says. I took that declaration to heart the other night.
Sandwich #152–“Back to Reality” Chicken, Tofu and Veggie Wraps
Vacation over. Back to reality.
Sandwich #151–“Roughing It” Rotisserie Chicken and Greens
During the Oregon Trail portion of our trip, activities will include summer snowboarding (!) at Mt. Hood, kitesurfing in the Columbia River Gorge and more wine tasting.
Sandwiches #144 and #145–“Clink and Clunk” Shrimp and Steak Lettuce Wraps
Here’s another sign that I’m turning into my mother.
Sandwich #143–“You LIKE Kale!” Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich
I scored a major victory at home today. I got E to eat kale!
Sandwich #142–“Back to Business” Peperonata and Goat Cheese on Baguette
Our Fourth of July—also known as my birthday—was country fabulous.
Sandwich #140–“You Make the Birthday Plans” Turkey Burgers with Bacon
My friends want me to have a birthday party for myself, but then I end up having to make the plans. I don’t want to do any work to enjoy my birthday. Instead, I’ll make E do it.
Sandwich #137–“Lunch, From Me to You” Mozzarella and Olive Tapenade on Pita
I did something that I’ve never done for E. I sent him off to work with homemade lunch.
Sandwich #130–“Weekend Productivity” Mozzarella and Homemade Pesto BLT
You can get more done with your day when you get up early. Because I was up and at ’em at 8am Saturday morning, I had coffee on the balcony with E, drove to Fairway AND nabbed the closest parking spot possible to the front door, bought enough groceries for the week, unloaded them at […]
Sandwich #124: “You Play, I’ll Stay” Chicken Ceasar Sandwich
Here’s another difference between E and I. He is friends with just about all of his ex-girlfriends. In fact, I have met a majority of the women he’s dated because he’s either invited them to our dinner parties or taken me to their birthday bashes and Sunday brunches. I am not friends with any of […]
Sandwich #115–“Don’t Just Google It” Ham with Lavander Goat Cheese, Honey and Caramelized Pecans
Ham and cheese is a good sandwich. Ham with spreadable fromage blanc, honey and caramelized pecans is a great sandwich. That is, if you know how to make carmelized pecans successfully.
