Slow Summer Sunday Snacking

On  this rainy, completely covered Sunday afternoon,  I asked myself, what would a non-traditional , lite sandwich contain? Uncured black forest ham with toasted Gruyere cheese ? Of course not, although, I do know it would hit the spot a few times over.  I did say non-traditional though. So here goes.

I decided on combining sweet and spicy for this one which I achieved by using thin slices of tree ripened bosc pear slices and chili peppers in olive oil imported from calabria. I mounted these on top of some excellent artisan multi-grain bread.

Next time you go sandwiching (related to the verb fishing), think differently. You are bound to come up with something that is tasty and healthy for you too.

Salute !

Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.

Paella Experimentation

There are times that I love to experiment just to kill away the boredom. And I get to play the culinary Guinea Pig. Yummy
