Philly Cheese Steak Night

My homemade baguettes strike again! Just like the caprese sandwiches, I wanted to make something fairly simple so that we could really enjoy the fresh bread. I also just love how cool I feel slinging my spatula around while grilling the meat and veggies. Maybe I should get a job at a food court?? That would actually be pretty sweet, but I think I would tire of smelling like onions and shopping mall every day…I used the first recipe that came up in a google search for a guide and then kind of did my own thing. I didn’t melt the provolone into a sauce, but I’m sure that would be amazing and I totally forgot that I bought mushrooms to add! I hate when that happens. I think it turned out for the best though since the bread is what made this particular sandwich extra special. Next time I gotta try the melty cheese sauce!

PS this is my 101st post! How cool is that?! I totally missed it when I posted number 100!

Caprese Sandwiches on Homemade Bread!

DSC_4293

Last weekend we stumbled across a delightful bakery/cafe called the South End Buttery. I saw the word buttery in the distance and knew I had to see what was up. We loved the design of the place and all the treats looked great. I was starving and grabbed a simple caprese sandwich without really expecting much…but it was so delicious! It made me think about how much good ingredients can make a difference in certain dishes. When it’s composed of just four things, quality ingredients make it shine. This is a sandwich that’s pretty hard to mess up, so I could tell they must be using good stuff. The bread was just perfect and I loved how they used a whole skinny baguette – easier to eat and cute! So, I decided then and there that I would attempt to make my own homemade baguettes. Eek! That’s something that has always scared me. Anything with yeast has kind of always scared me. I’ll post most about the actual bread making later, since this is sandwich week. But, spoiler alert: it was a success! The homemade bread and fresh basil made this simple classic even better. And perfect for an evening dinner in the park!
