Then I heat two heavy skillets. One I spray with olive oil spray. Put the sandwiches on it, then take the other (this is the one that needs to be heavy). Spray the top of the sandwiches, then smash them with the bottom of the second (heated) skillet. Turn and repeat. Who needs George Foreman?
I LOVE CUBAN SANDWICHES! I like your method, even though I use my little George Foreman. The last one I made was on a ciabatta roll. That time I didn't bother with George.

Here is another version that I made using my George. I sliced them in to strips. That version had bacon.

And, I love that you had to have green tea with your asian soup! I have so many different kinds of tea in my cupboard (green included) that it's coming out my ears!
I have V-8 juice daily...especially when I'm working. It's the only way I can get all my veggies in...it helps that I love it.

Green tea is also a daily item. I use the tea bag twice and usually have it cold. I have a cupboard full of different teas, too! I grew up drinking it and I like trying different ones.

Homemade Split Pea with Ham Soup, Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwich (Honey Baked Smoked Ham, and Rich, Creamy Local Swiss on Grilled Jewish Rye).

The soup is the kind that keeps drawing you into the kitchen to sample it while it simmers away in the crock pot.
