Leftover Wednesday – Ham & Brie Crostini

Tonight’s leftover meal was all B’s idea.  He and the hubs love Brie (I do not).  B found a chub of Brie leftover from the weekend in the fridge, pulled out the last of the ham luncheon meat that needed to be eaten today or thrown out and on the counter was the 6 inch remains of a baguette.  He wanted to make mini ham and cheese sandwiches for the hubs and heat them up.  I decided the sandwiches should be “open-faced”.
I sliced the baguette into twelfths, put strips of ham on each and divided up the remainder of the Brie among the bread.  Popped it in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes and voila! – Ham & Brie Crostini!  I had a ham and American cheese sandwich on wheat bread with mayo and mustard.
Dinner was so easy on me that I also made a chicken pot pie for tomorrow night.  Now all I have to do tomorrow is pop it in the oven and make a salad.  :o)

 

SERIES: 31 Reasons The Hubs and I Have Lasted 17 Years, #18

 
#18: Whoever is driving should not receive any “help”, suggestions or directions unless asked.
 
This one is common sense.  We don’t like it when someone in the car is a backseat (or passenger seat) driver to us, so we should not do it to others.  As I mentioned in reason #17, doing so comes across as belittling the driver, not trusting that they’re competent enough to drive properly or get you from point A to point B.    I know, I know; sometimes the driver isn’t competent to get from point A to point B, but you still have to bite your tongue.  When has any argument that your husband had no idea where he’s going or a suggestion to stop for directions ever been well received?  Never.  So don’t do it.  Wait until you are asked.
