OMG this is a killer sandwich. Who would have thought to put both Dijon mustard and apricot preserves as a sandwich spread. This sammy has a little kick and just melts in your mouth. Ree also put pecans on the sammy which is another first for me. I have never had nuts on a sandwich – in a salad yes – on a sandwich – no!! The only alteration I made was to avoid the cranberries because they are not a favorite of mine. This is a fabulous summer sandwich when it is cooler. The Panini maker is a whole lot less heat than the oven. You may even be able to put it on a grill!!
Even though I am trying to remember how far I have come so far, I still have some guilt over yo-yoing all over the place. I need to get back to being serious and never giving in to temptation or bad choices until I am back on the serious road. Every thing that enters my mouth has to be counted and then I will be back on the road to success. Then it is okay to splurge once in a while but lately it has become a bad habit. There are too many bad choice days. Deep breath - here we go.
The first thing I learned to knit from my friend, Madonna Strom, was a pair of baby mittens. She purchased the pattern and yard from a wonderful store named Wool and Company in St. Charles. The mittens are extremely easy to make because they have no thumbs. I can make a pair in an evening. They are fun and quick and make a wonderful shower gift.
Stop by Wool and Company and check out their classes and patterns!
