I firmly believe a nutritious sandwich is a good option for lunch. My idea of supper is a meat, two vegetables, hot homemade bread and dessert. Unfortunately, with most schedules, that is only possible on weekends. Most of the sandwich ingredients can be prepared ahead and refrigerated. Adapt today’s sandwiches to your time and tastes and enjoy.
I love cream of tomato soup. Today’s recipe is the best one I’ve ever tasted. Petite diced tomatoes are suggested. I prefer the texture of crushed. A little more chicken broth may be added, if desired. Do not substitute lower fat milk for the whipping cream.
Buttermilk wheat bread has just enough whole wheat flour for taste and texture. It went very well with both sandwiches.
Forty plus years ago, a friend gave me a jar of Jezebel sauce. I tasted it, thanked her profusely and put it in the ‘electric hog before she got to the corner. I made some for a friend this past week. Tasted it, made myself a jar and ate the whole thing. In my defense, I learned from reading all about it, there’s several variations in the choice of preserves. I chose the original version using pineapple preserves. Apricot was one option.
