I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

oven roasted turkey panini

… a quickie post, a few pics y’all. Thinly sliced oven roasted turkey, havarti, Boston lettuce, hothouse tomatoes, low-fat mayo and my favourite Yukon Gold potato bread. Used my Mario Batali grill pan, and made a quickie cambozola dressing for the sweet potato fries – oh, and that’s Maldon sea salt flakes too. Enjoy!!

Jarlsberg on the cheap!!

Couldn’t believe this while perusing my Highland Farms online flyer … Jarlsberg Cheese half price … $7.99/lb ($17.61/kg)!! Don’t know where you’re from and what y’all normally pay for it … $16/lb is the going rate in these parts … sometimes on sale for ten bucks if you’re lucky, and only if you know and are able to score it that is (lowest price I’ve ever seen btw), AND that’s only precut prepackaged wedges with the skin/rind on … this was available anyway you wanted it sliced (LOL, sorry for the cheesy pun … and again, ooops, lol). It’s one of my favourite go to cheeses, its flavour, texture is distinct … not overpowering, but not too mild either … love it in sandwiches, on crackers … great for any and many uses. And being a long time loyal, friendly, beloved Highland Farms customer … my cheese lady friend sliced off the throwaway bits before weighing & pricing saving me more money (scaled and priced with the rind was almost $45 – with it cut and discarded about $41 – saved $4), AND she vacuum sealed the whole deal for me (a service NOT offered I was told … looks like I AM special, lol). Oh, this was my second trip too … went first day during their one week sale and spent about $25 on smaller pieces … good thing I went back again midway through the week, CLF says they’re almost sold out, only a few wheels remaining … and she’s not sure if they’ll be restocking (or if they’ll give raincheques) before the sale ends … oh well, I got mine, lol!!

Beautiful display …

INCREDIBLE OFFER! … INDEED

My handbasket, almost 6 lb – $41 worth (deuces are wild, lol) …

grilled chicken club

Leftover grilled chicken à la pulled pork, thinly sliced ham, cheese, onions, tomatoes, iceberg lettuce – the most underrated lettuce in my opinion, often overlooked for its simplicity … love the contrasting cool crispness it imparts, and mayo. Oh, and on toasted white bread, I know eh, lol?! Also, wanted to try it with 2 completely different cheeses so I made one with Muenster, the other with Cambozola … both were VERY good, though I think I’d give the nod to the Muenster sammie … but if I used bacon in place of the ham, I’d go blue since I love that combo!! A couple of pics, enjoy …
