an inspired combination....


Hi There and happy Monday to you.  This is the 1st day of Spring Break around here and it happens to be incredibly chilly and rainy outside.  But these type of days can offer a kind of comfort and quiet which can be really restorative to peeps of all ages.  I have a fire burning and the cards, chess board, knitting and colored pencils are comfortably scattered about.  This inspired little sandwich combination from the Acme Bread Company added just a little pizzaz to our grey day.  I did have to venture up the street to pick up a fresh  sour baguette but already had the cornichons, salami and Kerrygold butter on hand.  Everyone agreed that the combination of sweet, sour, savory and crunch was inspired and amazingly delicious.  I can see this sandwich making an appearance at more than a few summer picnics.  What's on your menu today?

ps:  many other fab combination can be found here...

Mmmm that looks good. Fresh bread always invokes memories of picnics, and who's to say they can't be indoor ones. :0)

i will live vicariously through you on the amazing sandwich front! it looks sooooo yummy!
mondays are "breakfast for dinner" at the gardner home and i made 8 loaves of fresh ground whole wheat, flax, millet and sunflower bread yesterday that will probably end up cut thick and toasted (frenchly)...with REAL maple syrup!
loves to you.

Yum that bread looks divine! I think I'm drinking morning tea out of that very same cup. :) Hope the sun comes out to warm you soon.
