Monday: Grilled Ham and Gouda Sandwiches with Frisee and Caramelized Onions http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/231733
Tonight is a sandwich night because Mondays are usually so busy. Pair the sandwich with a salad or carrots and celery sticks to make an easy but tasty dinner. This is another great chance to use the panini maker. Any grilled sandwich lends itself to the panini press. The Brisket was really delicious. The molasses added just a hint of sweetness and the potatoes layered at the bottom of the slow cooker were cooked to perfection. This is definitely a keeper recipe. Let me know if you made it and what you thought about the recipe!
Reflections from the Backcounter
Previously, I had told you about the Bergamasco puppies that were on the way. Well, the delivery is any hour. I am waiting for a call. I remember when my family had a litter of 13 Airedale puppies. Although that was many years ago, I still remember crisp details of the event and the joy that we experienced tending to those darling little babies. Springtime, puppies , and daffodils are all signs of renewal and reassurance that life is an ongoing and joyful experience. Hope to have pictures of the puppies soon!
