I made a wonderful sandwich. On medium heat and after I drizzled olive oil in the grill pan, I grilled a few tomato slices, whole garlic cloves and slices of a yellow squash. Then I grilled two slices of bread - bread I had on hand which I normally use for toasting. If I had a delicious ciabatta or sourdough bread, I would've grilled that; but again, I just used what I had on hand.
I layered the squash and tomatoes on the slice, and tucked the garlic cloves in. I added a few slices of basil leaves (I washed them of course) to my sandwich, and spritzed the mound with a little bit of salt and pepper, then added the top slice of bread.
I bit into the sandwich and I closed my eyes because it tasted so good. There is definitely an art to grilling, and luckily when I grill or roast my veggies, they always come out fantastically well. The vegetables are never hard - they are tender and the juices and fragrances are released.
It's amazing that such a simple sandwich is simply divine!

I was able to attended the unique Chocolate City event. But before going into the white-picket fenced-in area, I just happened to run into Duff Goldman, the Ace of Cakes.
Let's just say it was a wonderful first Friday for me in Portland!

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” is the dumbest saying. Words can hurt people. So today, while the Pride Parade occurs in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego from 12 p.m. through Sunday until 8 p.m., think of all those individuals – even if we don’t understand them – who are fighting for their civil rights.
Although I’m not a gay woman, I can only imagine the trials gay people endure. Sexual orientation is not what makes a man or a woman. Skin color has nothing to do with a person. It’s what’s in their hearts and how they treat others that matters or doesn’t matter.Freedom of speech is so precious in this country. Yet, it’s time we stop treating each other poorly and name calling for no reason. It’s horrible for an individual to ridicule someone just because he or she is gay.
Good luck to all those marching in the Hillcrest parade!
