Okay so this may seem like a random post, and it probably is, but we put these sandwiches together for dinner the other night and I wanted to share. If you want to know the truth this was the dinner I pulled together after making my rolled flowers the other day (I needed something quick because my kids were starving and Mom had been ignoring them for too long).
Maybe this wouldn't exactly be considered a recipe, but more of a method that turned out well enough to share.
Here's how I made my sandwich. Take two slices of bread, and spread Ranch dressing on one half topped with cheddar cheese, and then put them both into the toaster oven (if you don't have a toaster oven use your oven on broil, but watch it carefully) until the cheese is melted and the toast is browned.
Then remove from the toaster oven and add ham and sliced tomatoes (with a sprinkle of Kosher salt on top of the tomatoes) Then put your sandwich together, cut in half and enjoy. We had some turkey bacon leftover from our "breakfast dinner" last night (can you tell I'm really into cooking this week?) and I think I'll make another one of these today for lunch with the added turkey bacon, yum!
But Dallas is more of a pepperoni than ham fan (go figure, they are made from the same animal) so for his sandwich we used Ranch dressing again, covered with mozzarella and pepperoni and then into the toaster oven. This turned out to be a great pizza sandwich. You could use marinara sauce, but try the Ranch, it's yummy.
The whole time I was quickly snapping pictures (that explains the quality, I need some lessons from Alissa) of this sandwich making process Hallie was saying, "stop taking pictures of my food, I'm starving!" But I politely ignored her and snapped a few anyway. That's how I parent and blog at the same time. I know, I'm a multi tasker, you should see me eat while watching TV. Good thing Travis wasn't home because he thinks I've really lost it when I photograph my food. Some day he'll understand.
While we're on the subject of food I wanted to show you these roasted almonds I'm obsessed with. I discovered these at Sam's Club last week, they're Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds, and they are divine. If you like almonds, and you like chocolate then you'll love these. They kind of taste like almonds roasted in hot cocoa mix. They have to be somewhat good for you, right? They're not chocolate covered, just roasted in cocoa, but they taste really chocolaty, and satisfy your craving for a sweet (just a handful a day).
