How do you like the roll that is surrounding this big fat Roasted Vegetable Sandwich? Ed made it and quite a few more to tell you the truth.
You see, I asked my husband for a breadmaker for Christmas. His response was ‘Do you?’, kind of questioning. That’s all. Just ‘Do you?’. So I went into ‘Yeah, I want to start making our own bread and I think with all my other cooking that would help me out a lot’.
He just pursed his lips and shook his head like – yeah, okay – that sounds good. End of conversation. I know he is thinking a whole lot more. Sometimes he is quite. Sometimes he isn’t. Sometimes he makes me laugh!
The story continues …
So, we are at relatives at Christmas and we spend a lovely day and open all of our packages together. I got a slew of cool kitchen gadgets and a beautiful bread maker – I am all excited. Everybody got cool stuff but I just really want to tell you my bread story.
When we get home I am rushing into the house with my arms full. There are only 3 steps to go up and I am excited and I am hurrying and I can’t see the steps and my big toe catches on the step and I go down. Down hard! The step edge goes right across my shin bone and I’m rolling back and forth on the ground holding my leg repeating over and over ‘Please, don’t be broken. Please, don’t be broken’. It worked because my leg wasn’t broken but I was laid up 6 weeks. I kid you not!
That was over five months ago and I haven’t made any bread yet. Haven’t bought any either. Ed makes all of our bread. What a good idea I had.
So, to make a long story short, hahaha! … To continue, I wanted a different kind of roll for this vegetable sandwich that I was thinking of. Something that would look good in a photo for the blog. We were at Costco and I mentioned it to Ed and he said, ‘I’ll make you some!’. Great!
That is how these perfect rolls were created. Now, you can just buy some nice roll and I am sure this sandwich will be just as wonderful for you too. But still, I can’t wait to give him another assignment.
For this luscious Roasted Vegetable Sandwich there are two kinds of roasted peppers, fried sweet potatoes, sautéd mushrooms and more. This wonderful Italian style sandwich is finished off with a drizzling of vinaigrette. Pile it high!
