daily bliss: road trip sandwiches
My Mom makes the best road trip sandwiches--creations of roasted peppers, avocado, cheese, black pepper stacked on good bread and wrapped in wax paper. At a certain point on the road, we unwrap these sandwiches and settle in for a little break from plugging our wheel to the white line (with apologies to Kerouac).
In preparation for my trip to Michigan tomorrow morning, I made a road trip sandwich, following my Mom's "recipe" (although the bread is only so-so), pictured above wrapped in a natural wax paper pocket.
And, for dinner tonight, I made a panini with the same bread, roasted pepper, cheese, and black pepper. The cheese spilled over the edges and bubbled and crackled into a delicious molten mass. I cracked open one of my mini bottles of Big House Pink, dipped a few Frontera lime scented corn chips in the leftover avocado spread, and tucked in for a light Spring meal.
