Strawberry Spinach Salad I recently went through the drive-thru at a fast food restaurant, something I very seldom do, and ordered a Strawberry Spinach Salad. The salad was ok but it lacked oomph. Which brings us to this recipe. This salad is packed full of

Clubhouse BLT Sandwich

The definition for a club sandwich or clubhouse sandwich according to the Food Lover’s Companion    is as follows; “A double-decker sandwich consisting of three slices of toast or bread between which are layers of chicken, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and whatever else pleases the sandwich maker.” That pretty much sums up our Clubhouse BLT Sandwich, minus the chicken or turkey.

Hot and Muggy Weather

In my house hot and muggy weather signals it’s time to eat lighter meals. When the hot and muggy weather hits, in my opinion anyway, it’s even to darn hot to grill. Even with the air conditioning running at full tilt, it’s difficult to enjoy something that’s “hot off the grill.” I’ve always been this way. Even when I was a kid, I wasn’t fond of hot weather. It might have something to do with the fact that when I was growing up, we didn’t have air-conditioning, we were lucky to even have a fan:) I’m just pulling your leg, back then no one had air-containing. My bedroom was located upstairs and it had one tiny window. I can remember tossing and turning, trying to fall asleep. We’d push the bed as close to the window as possible, in order to catch the slightest breeze.

Air-Conditioners

Years later when I got married, we lived in a small upstairs apartment with no air-conditioning. It was so frickin hot in that upstairs apartment!! I had my son in August, at the tender age of 20. While pregnant I would lay on the couch, in front of a fan trying to cool off. I truly thought that that summer was the hottest summer on record. Eventually we did get a window unit for the bedroom, which did help considerably. Back in the old days, (the early 80’s), it was rare to have a car that was air conditioned, let alone your home. For some people humidity doesn’t bother them but for people like me, who can’t stand hot and humid weather, central air is just short of a miracle.

Lighter Meals

Lighter meals can mean many different things to different people. Some people might consider a burger cooked on the grill with a side of baked beans a light meal. While others might consider a slice of watermelon a light meal. In my house a lighter meal consists of pretty much anything that can be eaten cold. At the top of this list are: sandwiches, followed by salads and lastly a simple stir-fry or kabobs. Clubhouse BLT Sandwich is at the very top of the list.
