Sammiches


I spent the weekend in San Francisco to see a few very cool bands (see Listening below). Had a great time of course, but didn't have much time leftover for cooking or crafting. I did quite a bit of crochet work in the car, but nothing thats ready to post quite yet!
Since I've got four more shows I'm planning on being at over the next four days, I figure this is a good time to post one of my most favorite SUPER fast and easy dinners of all time: the sammich. These take about 12 seconds to prepare and you can ignore them in the oven for however long you please. They're also, suprisingly, almost as good cold the next day as they are straight out of the oven.

White Cheddar and Tomato Sandwiches:

1 round loaf of sourdough bread, halved or quartered depending on size), or 1 sourdough baugette cut in half or thirds, or as many mini sourdough baugettes as you need sammiches
sliced white cheddar cheese
1 tomato per sammich, sliced and seeded
(optional: fresh cracked black pepper, parmesan cheese, arugala, etc.)

-slice down the center of each piece of sourdough and stuff w/ cheddar and tomatoes
-wrap each sammich in foil tightly (as you would a bakede potato) and toss in the oven at 375 or so until cheese melts (about 20 minutes or so, but they can be left in longer)
