February - Sandwich Month

I declared February sandwich month - because I do all the cooking in my house and I can do that. This year only, we will be featuring sandwiches, burgers, etc - on the menu in our house.

Philly Cheese Steak

When I told my husband he was a little disappointed - because naturally when some of us think of a sandwich we think of peanut butter and jam. But I listed a few of the sandwich offerings to come and then he was okay with it.

Here are a few of the sandwiches we've had thus far:

Burger King style crispy chicken sandwich (much cheaper to make at home)
Turkey cranberry croissant (recipe below)
BBQ Ham sandwiches (they looked a lot like Arby's roast beef sandwiches)
Philly Cheese steak (our Valentine's dinner)
Moons over Mihammy sandwich (a copycat version like the one from Denny's restaurant)
BLT with avocado and cheese
Fried egg, bacon, avocado and cream cheese sandwich (yummy - my breakfasts on many occasions)

And here are a few of the sandwiches to come:

French Dip au jus
all-American Bacon cheeseburgers
Grilled pineapple teriyaki burgers
Jibarito (wheat free)
Meatloaf sandwiches
Gyros and ajvar (b/c pita pockets still count as sandwiches)
Stuffed French Toast
Roasted Eggplant and Red Pepper Panini
Muffaletta (maybe?)
Ham, turkey, bacon subway style sandwiches :)

BBQ Ham sandwich, spinach salad, chips, melon
Crispy chicken sandwich and home made french fries
Bacon, Avocado, Fried Egg and cream cheese* croissant

Turkey Cranberry Croissant
recipe from Great American Favorite Brand Name Cook Book aka "the big red cook book"

Thin sliced cooked turkey (450g)
1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup chopped pecans
6 croissants or rolls
3/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
Lettuce leaves

Combine cream cheese, marmalade, and pecans in a small bowl. Spread top and bottom halves of croissants with cream cheese mixture. Layer turkey on bottom halves. Spoon two tablespoons cranberry sauce over turkey. Add lettuce and croissant tops. Yeild: 6 sandwiches.

The actual cream cheese mixture I found a bit on the bitter side. Maybe my marmalade was just too bitter. So I added lots of finely chopped pineapple to sweeten it and I used almonds in place of pecans because that's what I had. And then I added about a tablespoons finely chopped green onion just to liven it up a bit. And then it was really yummy. And there was a lot of leftover cream cheese mixture and that is what I used on my fried egg, bacon and avocado sandwiches for breakfast and it tasted amazing!!!


Anyway, I'd be interested in knowing some of your favorite sandwiches offerings are? List them in the comments section below. Thanks :)

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

Making Friends 101

After moving back to the U.S. - there was definitely a readjustment period for me. So, I put time into starting a blog. And then getting myself out there, making friends and getting involved and going places and doing things with the children.

Then when I did that, and I did it successfully, there really was no time to blog about how great St. George is. I have come across a few other mommy bloggers that have attempted to explain just how great this area is, but after a time, everyone kinda stops and it's because we are enjoying the sunshine and the nature and all that this area has to offer that we stop blogging or just don't do it as often.

Recently a good friend, Michelle, that I met shortly after moving here, asked if I would write some blog posts for her on her blog Green Kale and Yams about my recent change has a Vitamix owner. I said, yes.

Now it's time to get the word out, that I have switched over from using a cheap model smoothie maker to an Americ…
