Salami and Cheese Sandwich



I made a salami and cheese sandwich last night, but it fell a bit apart when I sliced it and was not photo-ready. I ended up eating it standing in the kitchen, which was very satisfying and no fuss. Tonight, I was too tired to go out to forage for food; instead, I made another salami sandwich, but made it a double-decker, so it'd be more filling. I added thin layers of jarred artichoke spread, but it was a misstep because wet ingredients in sandwiches require key placement to avoid soggy bread. I did not make good layering choices, so the bottom bread slice was mushy and not so fab.

I have never been into double-decker sandwiches as they involve much more bread than I care for. Not sure what came over me tonight (I guess I was feeling experimental), but I couldn't finish the sandwich. I know, I am so weak sauce. On another note, It's going to be a low-impact weekend. I have been theorizing the bad air quality (due to the fires) has done a number on me. I've had a sore throat since yesterday and felt very foggy and tired today. Maybe some homemade soup is in the near future?

I once made some sandwiches from a recipe, with a crusty baggett and roasted vegetables (eggplant, zuke, and others?), and possibly some cheese? They were tightly wrapped in plastic overnight—actually for a 5 hour drive to Chicago when my daughter still lived there_ so the juices from the veg softened the baggett. Soggy on purpose: they were so good. We ate them in a beautiful park on the shore of Lake Michigan. In NOVEMBER!!! Fabulous. But I cannot find the recipe anymore.
Maybe it was not a recipe, but the setting…

Tess: That sounds like a lovely sandwich! The best part of eating crusty bread seems to be making it soft by soup or in your case, grilled veggies. :)
