Yes, indeed, I took the easy way out for dinner last night. In anticipation of a weekend full of cooking and a day consumed almost entirely by wrapping, I chose to forgo the stove, the oven and the pots and pans and assemble a sandwich instead.
I layered fire glazed ham, oven roasted turkey and a slice or two of Genoa salami on crusty peasant bread. In my opinion, every good sandwich needs a crunch element too! I sliced vine ripened tomato, sweet onion and crunchy lettuce and dressed them with a vinaigrette made from olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, Dijon, honey. oregano and salt and pepper. I placed the dressed veggies atop some aged Vermont cheddar and, finally, gave the bread a little schmear of mayonnaise. Yum! Anyway, who says you need to cook every night to get a good meal?
