The Sandwich You Must Try!
If you are one of my readers in the U.S. you are probably scratching your head and looking at your calendar again. Yes it is October. And yes, I have gone on-and-on about it being fall, and how much I love fall. And well..this picture looks like July doesn't it? Hah! You're wrong, it was actually August!
Why has this picture been languishing in my "to-be-blogged" picture file? Well...look at it...it's a sandwich and some grilled corn. Not much to look at, not much to blog about. But I felt compelled because lurking in this simple meal is a combination that can not, should not, be missed.
And that combination is...drumroll please...roasted red peppers and goat cheese. Yep, that's it. If you want to always be prepared to have one of the best tasting, simplest sandwiches that you could ever make, keep a jar of roasted red peppers in your pantry and some goat cheese in your fridge. It's that good. And if you are so inclined you can roast the red peppers yourself and make some goat's milk cheese. Wait, I have to stop, I'm becoming lightheaded, I can't even imagine the goodness of that.
That's it folks, smear some goat cheese on a slice of bread, top with some roasted red peppers, add top slice of bread, toast or grill, and eat. You could probably add some fresh herbs, a bit of olive tapenade, or something else to jazz it up if you'd like, but you don't really have to. The combination of the tangy goat's milk cheese and the sweet red peppers can stand on it's own.
So, tell me people, what's your favorite easy sandwich?
