Bahn Mi Vietnamese sandwich.
I cant believe a sandwich could be this good, especially a three dollar sandwich.
My favorite eating neighborhood in Denver is right around the intersection of Federal and Alameda. Lots of Chinese and Vietnamese with a bunch of Mexican mixed in. Best of all, it's all really cheap. Not such a good area for bicycle riding though.

Another example from last week. A small French town, one auberge with a terasse full of locals. We ordered the menu de l'auberge. The starters and main course were nothing special, but were brightened up by a bottle of excellent Cotes de Provence rosé. The desserts, however, deserve a place in this thread. A very tasty tarte aux pommes and a perfect crème brûlée:

That looks delicious, my mouth is watering! Is that a Griswold skillet? I picked one up at a garage sale a few years ago, and it's my first "nice" iron skillet. Surprisingly thin and cooks beautifully, I've been on the lookout for a larger one ever since.

An uitsmijter consists of a couple of slices of white bread, sliced boiled ham and two fried eggs. It was introduced to our low countries in the nineteenth century, and is believed to have come from Germany, where a similar dish is known as "Strammer Max".

This is one I devoured recently. A rather luxurious one, with three (!) slices of bread, three (!) eggs and cheese.



Am I the only one?

Not lunch, necessarily (we'll see if there's any left over by noon tomorrow), but my GF baked this pie complete with bike-themed decoration.

The letters match those engraved on the fork crowns of our respective C&V bikes: 'M' for Marinoni and 'A' for Atala. They may also happen to reflect our respective initials...
And what could me more C&V than home-baked pie, right? :

Well, as long as you don't eat three of these a day you'll be fine. Anyway, in our Calvinistic society this would be considered a luxury lunch. For most people their daily lunch looks like this:

She bakes you pies and she rides C&V bikes... you should change her initials to AM before she gets away!

Growing up my old country grandmother made German pancakes in her basement summer kitchen and it was always a contest to see who could pack away the most; the only topping permitted was her home-made raspberry syrup. We still make them at home, especially for big gatherings and drive-by relatives and friends, but the topping repertoire has expanded considerably with the passing generations in addition to relying on a well-seasoned pair of iron skillets and the butter in the batter to cook the cakes instead of a heaping teaspoon of Crisco to add 'richness' to each one.



Mrs. skidoo surveys the topping for all other toppings....

Ok, I took a shot at making lunch today. I wasn't entirely sure what I was making but I am happy to say that it was ok. It was a step up from eating the usual stuff from a box.

Phase 1:
Sourdough bread, Egg, Serrano, habanero, Jalapeno peppers, hot sauce, salt and pepper.

DSC00408 by mkeller234, on Flickr


Phase 2:
Turkey and Mozzarella cheese

DSC00409 by mkeller234, on Flickr

Phase 3:
Cook on George Foreman grill... even I know that is weird.

I wish I had remembered to use our C&V plates.

Looks good Matt. That's not a George Foreman grill, it's a panini press.

Thanks Matt! Not C&V yet, but it looks very tasty and you've now shown it to the world, so who knows, in 20 years or so? I'll be sure to let you know when the "Mkeller234" shows up on the menu next to the Club Sandwich and the Ploughman's Lunch.

Thank you. Good example! (including a good indication of the quality of the salmon - great pic).
