|The Deen Bros.|
It should come as no surprise that most Americans choose to eat sandwiches during lunch. The Grain Foods Foundation would like to encourage families to think outside of the sandwich box, as it were, and make one evening a week "Sandwich Night." It's a concept I can get behind seeing as "I heart bread" might as well be my middle name. The only dilemma is that I don't have much imagination when it comes to making them... Husband makes grilled cheese sandwiches; I make PB&Js. 'Cause we're wild and crazy like that.
Jamie and Bobby's culinary skills (and their panini press) really opened my eyes to the wide array of sandwich possibilities out there. I'm sharing my favorite recipe of theirs at the end of this post, but for more choices, check out this link for an endless - and I do mean endless - list of sandwich recipes. I'm also pleased to report that the boys (I realize they're grown men but they were Paula's boys first) were as nice as they could be, completely down to earth and happily at home in the kitchen. Perhaps my favorite line of the day was from Bobby, who said for them, "the kitchen is the heart of the home." Sure, you can find that quote on any faux wood stenciled frame at Cracker Barrel, but what can I say, it gave me a big ol' warm fuzzy.

The Deen Brothers' Grilled Bacon Pimento Cheese Sandwich
Pimento cheese is a Southern staple, and I hadn't had it in years. And everything is better with bacon. Enjoy!
