It's been a hot week, with temperatures getting higher, earthquakes happening in unpredictable locations, & Moms everywhere are anxiously awaiting the beginning of school. If you need a moment to collect your thoughts & quietly map out your day (which, in my case, never goes according to plan), a great cup of coffee or tea, a slice of toast done juuuusst right, some sweet butter, & a slathering of Pink Slip Jam just might add to your quality of life on these late Summer mornings. In case the sandwich selection has become a bit hum-drum this season, have you ever made a Monte Cristo?? It involves meat, so vegetarians?? Avert your eyes. While I do not have an exact recipe, it involves a double decker sandwich, filled with ham, turkey, Swiss, JAM, & then coated in an egg batter & grilled...fancy-pantsy restaurants serve this cut into triangles & frosted with a sprinkling of powdered sugar. I am willing to bet this extravaganza will make your kids stand up & take notice!
