It's about time for a Sandwich Night, don't you think?

Tuesday, July 28. 7:00 PM
I will delve into the cookbook 'wichcraft and make "chopped chickpeas with roasted peppers, black olives, lemon confit, and parsley." (That all goes on country bread, by the way.)
And, we will delve into the past, to where it all began, and watch episodes from the first season of America's Next Top Model. Tyra Banks had enough free time to personally attend photoshoots. Jay Manuel was not yet orange. Janice Dickinson ruled the school.
Don't miss it!

I've been distracted

I've been lax on posting lately. Sorry about that! I did get out to visit Beth on her cross country bicycle tour, though. I met her in Colorado for a few days of sightseeing. We spent the last night of my trip at our friend Kate's in Boulder. She was a gracious hostess and made these beautiful breakfast sandwiches for us. She even helped Beth pump up her bicycle tires with the bike crammed in the back of the rental car. Thanks Kate!
I dropped Beth off in the wilds of Wyoming to continue her trek. I've got some sandwich reports from her I will post soon!

Make new friends but keep the old... is the Seward Coop's excellent bratwurst and the other is Everett's coarse ground weiner. Oh, that didn't rhyme, did it?
I had some folks over yesterday for a little July 4th cookout. Originally I was just going to have the awesome hot dogs (officially the coarse ground weiners, but I giggle too much when I say weiners, so I'm calling them hot dogs from here on out) from Everett's. Then, while I was shopping at the Seward Coop, I saw their variety of bratwurst and knew that the dogs needed some company. I got wild rice brats and cheese curd brats. Unfortunately I burned the living crap out of them in our flame throwing gas grill (it's got a rusty hole in the burner). It is a testament to their quality that the large amount of carbon surrounding them did not detract from their fantastic flavor. It is also a credit to both the hot dog's and cheese curd brat's great taste that I ate them before I remembered to take pictures of them. You will have to be content with the platter of casinged goodness and condiment selection!
