Summer Sandwiches (part 1)


I haven't even finished my last bite and I'm already blogging about this sandwich. I had a sandwich like this about 6 years ago.  It has crossed my mind several times since then, but I could not find the recipe.

Finally today I realized I had to try to recreate this sandwich to the best of my memory, and boy am I glad I did. Jake said he would pay big money to eat this sandwich and thinks we should open a restaurant just because of it.

Here's what you need:

  • 3 TBS Mustard
  • 1 TBS Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dried onions
  • Garlic powder
  • 1 loaf artisan bread sliced
  • Honey
  • Virginal ham sliced
  • Havarti Cheese sliced
  • Butter
Here's what you do:
  • Combine mustard, mayonnaise, dried onion, and a couple shakes of garlic powder.
  • Butter one side of the slices of bread (for cooking)
  • Spread mustard mixture on one slice, and honey on the other slice of bread (the side without butter)
  • Fill sandwich with ham and cheese.
  • Grill sandwich until both sides are golden brown, cheese is melted, and ham is hot.
I hope you enjoy this summer (or Winter or Spring or Fall) sandwich. Be watching; another summer sandwich is on its way.




Jake and I have been looking for places to rent. So far we have seen the mediocre, the bad, and the ugly.  Where's the good?
As we have been looking around, I realized how much a front door can tell you about a house. Some are worn down, some are boring, and some are bright and inviting. One day when I get to choose the color of my front door I will pick something like these beautiful pictures!

I might have to move to another country in order to have this next door, but I wanted to show it to you anyway.
Welcome home!


Summer Salad

Just looking at this picture makes my mouth water. This has got to be the best way to eat a salad. It is so simple and only requires a few ingredients. I love its sweet taste and texture.

Here's what you need:
  • Your favorite salad (I like the red/green leaf lettuce with spinach)
  • An apple
  • Walnut pieces
  • Raspberry vinaigrette dressing 

Here's what you do:

  • Prepare two servings of lettuce into bite-sized pieces
  • Dice up the apple and divide between the two salads
  • Top with walnuts and the dressing.
Such a fresh and tasty addition to any summer meal. Enjoy!


Create Your Own Wall Art

Jake and I have had a canvas and a bottle of red paint sitting in our apartment for about 5 months. We had fantastic ideas for it that we never had the courage or artistic abilities to pursue. I finally decided that I had the time and inspiration to create my own unique piece of art. My inspiration....

 Here are four easy steps to making your own very unique piece of art:

1. Chose a canvas that is a good size for your wall. You don't want it so small that it is barely noticeable, but you don't want something that will consume the wall.
2. Place blue painter's tape directly onto the canvas. Be creative! Try different angles or line them up. It's really up to you. (Note: Make sure the tape is firmly pressed onto the canvas so the paint does not leak under.)
3. Paint 2 or more coats onto the canvas. (Paint the sides as well. It will look more professional that way.)
4. After the paint has dried, peel off the tape and hang your new art on the wall. So easy!

Make this project your own. Paint in two or three colors instead of one!
