California Club Sandwiches

Doesn’t that look delicious?  I didn’t feel like cooking anything for dinner last night so I made sammies. This was the hubs sandwich, a California Club.  I toasted my new favorite sandwich bread, Arnold’s Oatnut, followed by:

  • Mayo
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Locally grown heirloom tomatoes (makes all the difference in the world!)
  • Thick-cut applewood smoked bacon
  • Wegman’s honey smoked turkey
  • Avocado
When I dress up a plain ole turkey and cheese sandwich into a gourmet one that you can get in a restaurant, you have something dinner-worthy, delicious and filling.  Enjoy!

Recipe: Pan-Seared Chicken with Balsamic Cream Sauce, Mushrooms and Onions

I found this wonderful recipe for Pan-Seared Chicken with Balsamic Cream Sauce, Mushrooms and Onions from Peace, Love and Low Carb on Pinterest.  Chicken, butter, heavy cream, shrooms, onions…all my favorite things!  Oh, crap!  I just looked at the recipe again and realized that it called for parmesan cheese!  I totally missed that when I made the dish the other night.  LOL  I love parmesan cheese, too!  Well, I’ll have to make it again and it will be even better with that addition.

This was a hit with all three of us, thank goodness.  Definitely adding this to the dinner rotation.  This is also a “guest worthy” dish, IMO.  The author made it in 2 pans but I just used one.  Why wash another pan if you don’t have to?  As you can see, I served it over pasta, very unlow carb, but all that yummy, creamy sauce (sauce that would have been even creamier had I put the parmesan cheese in it) needed something to run into, cling to, and what better than shells?

The pictures on this blog look fabulous and I’m sure I will be making other recipes from it.  The author has beautiful, step-by-step pictures to walk you through this recipe, so go check it out!
