Two weeks and two days ago I started a batch of sliced onions fermenting in a salty brine. After tasting today I deemed them sufficiently soured, crunchy and delicious. I mentioned to Faye that I was going to make a sandwich with peanut butter, fermented onions and spinach. She looked at me as though … More Peanut Butter Sandwich With Pickled Onions & Spinach
Faye dropped a mandoline into our Amazon shopping cart and I went ahead and placed the order. The PL8® Professional Mandoline arrived yesterday. It has every feature one would expect in a quality mandolin. It will be put to good use. With a machine like this one could become rusty with their knife skills. By … More Soup & Sandwich
A sandwich is an easy way out when I can’t come up with a more creative idea for a meal. I’m also likely to use a sandwich as an excuse to slip in some cheese. After all, what is a sandwich without cheese unless, of course, there is none on hand? I have never made … More Sandwich: Canvas For Creativity
This morning when I saw this post by Kim at Glover Gardens about a dish called Tuscany-Texas Goat Cheese Spread, I knew I had to experience it, and the sooner the better. (The original post with the recipe is on this page). All the ingredients are normally staples in my pantry and/or growing in the garden, but … More A Delicious Sandwich
I have been neglectful posting on the blog of late. It hasn’t been for lack of worthy subject matter, but rather, due to laziness and distraction with other interests.

I beat a … More Spinach & Cheese Egged Sandwich
The new young Swiss chard is big enough now to be eaten as a pot herb. We enjoyed some on sandwiches today. The chard was cooked with onions, peppers, mushrooms and chunks of veggie burger patties heated in barbecue sauce. Thawed homemade veggie burger patties broken into chunks were heated in a separate pan with … More Swiss Chard, Mushroom & Veggie Burger Sandwich
I don’t do well eating sandwiches. The effort sooner or later ends up a disaster. Sometimes I lose control and the whole thing falls apart on the very first bite.

Of course, we were comfortable and warm by the wood fire in our humble abode. Faye mentioned that she was getting hungry, so I asked … More Mushroom Sandwich With Jalapeño Cheese Sauce
Sometimes I can’t resist indulging my penchant for cheese.
