And if you've never had one you need to! It's one of the best sandwiches there is. Pork, ham, pickle, french bread works... all flattened out, or pressed... mmmm

...and Swiss cheese.

Some folks wrap the brick in foil so the dirty parts don't touch the food.

I just booked a ticket to Austin, TX, for late May-early June to visit my sister and brother-in-law. My dad is also flying in from Calif. I'm so excited! And the ticket was free with points we built up on our credit card. We use it for practically everything and pay it off every month. I still have over 100k points

one of bobby flay's throwdown challenges showcased the cuban sandwich. let me tell you, that episode, those incredible meat-filled sandwiches, got my juices flowing like a rushing river in springtime! in fact, i want one of those cubans right now....

I probably saw the same episode, Vit. That's where I got my grilled Cubans method from was a BF show. And also the roasted garlic/mayo/mustard spread that he used. Although sometimes I put nothing on them but butter.

I have spent the last four days dealing with my internet provider (Comcast). My service has been intermittent. Yesterday it finally gave out completely. I got a four day credit on my bill. Spike got on the phone and dealt with them. Funny how a man's voice can make them listen. Now that I have that straightened out, I have to try and see why I am not getting my emails from DC.
