Hot Weather = Light Meals
Last night, it was still in the 90's, as it has been for a few days.. I know a lot of you are getting hotter weather than that, but in Michigan it tends to be humid also- and we're not used to it yet!
I thought I'd pick up some bakery sub rolls, some thinly sliced rare roast beef, and make a popular sandwich that doesn't require an oven on- The French Dip! It is a simple sandwich, that shows well if you don't try to make it gourmet... I slice the roll length-wise (but not all the way thru!), pile on the roast beef, along with some thinly sliced Swiss cheese. The Au Ju is a beef broth, with a bit of garlic and thinly sliced onions simmered in it- both to flavor it and create some soft onion slices to put on the sandwich... Heating the sandwich in a Microwave until cheese melts, then placing the onions on the sandwich makes for a hot, neat to eat treat on a hot summer's evening! Use a dense bread, as it takes the dipping well without getting soggy, or falling apart sloppy.... Enjoy your week-ends, I'm off today to get my fireworks for the 4th!
