B(acon) A(rugula) (T)omato Tartine

  Thursday nights always consist of a very light dinner at our house because Dennis is off to play at his softball games, Kylie is usually at school studying and I don’t feel like cooking a big meal for just one. Tonight being Thursday, I decided I’d make a tartine, which is an open faced…

Slow Cooker Beer and BBQ Sauce Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Dennis thought pulled pork sandwiches would be good for dinner last night while watching the World Series game. Congratulations to the Boston Redsox on becoming the 2018 World Series Champions! While I was at the market picking up a pork shoulder blade roast, I noticed a clearance rack with a shelf of single bottles of…

Spicy Tuna Melt

Wondering what to make for lunch today, I settled on a tuna sandwich. That soon turned into an idea to make a tuna melt and to make it on the spicy side. I had jalapeños to use and also pepper jack cheese that I needed to use up. I  like the all white, albacore tuna,…

Merlot Meatball Sandwich

Last weekend, Dennis and I stopped at Subway for a sandwich for lunch. I do enjoy Subway as a healthy and quick lunch when we’re out running errands. I always make sure to order a sandwich that is under their Fresh Fit Choices. Most often, I will choose the Turkey Breast, every now and then,…

Grilled Havarti, Green Chile and Apple Sandwich

Wondering what to make for lunch today, I decided on a grilled Havarti sandwich. To the Havarti, I chose to add diced green chiles and a quarter of a sliced apple. I love to add an apple to my sandwich … something about that added crunch just does it for me. The diced green chiles…

It’s National Grilled Cheese Day!

Many people, when asked what they consider to be their favorite, or one of their favorite comfort foods, will immediately respond with “Grilled Cheese!”. Maybe it’s because it’s something we eat when we’re kids, so it takes us back to a time when things were simple. Grilled Cheese and a bowl of tomato soup, what’s…

Grilled Ham and Irish Cheddar with Sauerkraut on Pumpernickel

I had the best day today! My very good friend, Pam (marshmallow blogger Pam …) asked me if I’d like to go to a movie, shopping and lunch. I love the days Pam and I spend together. First of all, we love shopping for the same things. Second, we can chat for hours so lunch…

Brie, Blueberry Preserves and Kale Toasted Sandwich

I don’t know about you, but I enjoy an old favorite for lunch every now and again. Something that brings back childhood memories and makes you think about being a kid once again. I also enjoy taking an old favorite and changing it up a bit, making it healthier even. Last Wednesday my dear friend,…

Slow Cooked Italian Beef

For my last post of 2017, I wanted to share a recipe I made for my Ugly Christmas Sweater Party on the 22nd. Dennis and I hosted our first annual Ugly Christmas Party a few days before Christmas and we had a fabulous time. Our friends came dressed in their favorite Christmas sweaters, and in…

Turkey, Cranberry and Stuffing Bagel Sandwich

Can we even believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away? Where has this year gone? The old saying goes something like this “Time flies when we’re having fun …”. Apparently, I’ve been having a blast! I’m really in the mood for Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving and I’ve been hosting  Thanksgiving dinner for the…
