Prepping for St. Baldrick’s

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

As the time of my balding draws closer, I decided to do something fun for St. Baldrick’s this year. My hair?

Oh, yes, it is green.

I am still asking for your green as well. I am up to 130 dollars in donations but, that isn’t enough. Every dime donated is another dime towards saving kids’ lives.

Also, I finally have the link to Joe’s memorial site. Joe is the little boy who I am shaving my head in memory of. His mum is a member of as I am, and I thought this would be appropriate.

Any amount of donation will help, please consider donating to this cause.

Thank you so much to those that have.


Sandwich of the day

Wednesday, March 5th, 2008

The sandwich of the moment here:

Ciabatta bread, cut in half. A good quality smoked turkey. Habanero cheddar cheese. mayo. butter.

Equipment: 2 cast iron pans. I use a large round griddle and a 12 inch fry pan. another small fry pan

Throw both pans over burners, medium high heat if electric stove top, high if gas.

While that is working, butter the outside of the ciabatta. put turkey in the small fry pan with a little butter, on medium heat to heat it through.

When turkey is heated, layer turkey and cheese in ciabatta bread. Place the sandwich on the one pan, then pick up the other cast iron pan and place it on top of the sandwich, making sure that the pressure is fairly even.

Cook until crispy and cheese is melting out the sides. Peel apart, put on mayo or mustard, although I think mustard doesn’t go as well with the habanero cheddar.

Another thing I sometimes do is throw in some sliced red onion when grilling it, or some grilled onion. A friend of mine uses a panini press but, I already have the pans, so there is no need for another piece of kitchen equipment.
