Sunday's Soup & Sandwich Dinner - The Perfect Cold Weather Combination

Today was a damp, chilly cold day here. Our temps didn't make it out of the 30s. Hubby went for a long walk early this afternoon. Even though we bundled up, the wind was still brutally cold. Late last night (around midnight), I started a batch of my Spicy Beef & Cabbage Soup in the crock pot to cook overnight so it would be ready for us to enjoy today. My older son came for dinner this evening. He is gluten free (not completely grain free) so I made a batch of my Sesame Seed Sandwich Rolls so we could have soup and sandwiches for dinner. I picked up some Boars Head turkey breast and Muenster cheese for the sandwiches, along with some fresh romaine lettuce and tomatoes. It was the perfect meal for this blustery day. We all enjoyed it tremendously. Sometimes it is the simplest of things that we enjoy the most it seems. I snapped a couple photos of our easy peasy Sunday dinner below. Enjoy!

I just made these and they are cooling. We don't eat GF but I know a couple people that do. So, I want to give them some of these to try. I only had a Whoopee panned it was a bit smaller. I got 10 but might should have gone with 9. Anyway I was proud of their appearance. I also had to use poppy seed. I thought I had sesame seeds bit couldn't find them.

Hi Charlotte,

How very nice and considerate that you made these even though you aren't GF yourself...but made them for others you know who are! I can't imagine how surprised your GF friends and guests will be that you were so considerate of their dietary choices too! It's frequently a concern for those of us about what we can or can't eat when eating at someone's home. I am very impressed! :-)
