Just a Sandwich

Yes, indeed, I took the easy way out for dinner last night.  In anticipation of a weekend full of cooking and a day consumed almost entirely by wrapping, I chose to forgo the stove, the oven and the pots and pans and assemble a sandwich instead.

I layered fire glazed ham, oven roasted turkey and a slice or two of Genoa salami on crusty peasant bread.  In my opinion, every good sandwich needs a crunch element too!  I sliced vine ripened tomato, sweet onion and crunchy lettuce and dressed them with a vinaigrette made from olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, Dijon, honey. oregano and salt and pepper.  I placed the dressed veggies atop some aged Vermont cheddar and, finally, gave the bread a little schmear of mayonnaise.  Yum! Anyway, who says you need to cook every night to get a good meal?
