French Dips & Making Progress!

" A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same". ~ Elbert Hubbard

I've agreed to guest blog regularly for Girlfriendology. There is something about the concept of nurturing friendships that really appeals to me. Life gets so busy and time with friends makes it all worthwhile.
I've been lucky enough to have had some excellent friends in my life. Since food is always such a big part of so many friend get together's I thought it'd be fun to offer regular guest posts and reach a wider audience. It's going to be about hosting regular lunch clubs and offering tasty recipes too.
It's been a busy week here with getting my Language and Literature classes at MA Maritime Academy underway. Not to mention, I'm happy to announce I've completed a revised edition of "Meet Me in My Cape Cod Kitchen" and have it (just about ready) available as an e-book version through my Blog.
And if I don't hear from a Publisher who is willing to publish "Sweeter by the Beach" anytime soon, I will most likely shoot the photographs myself and make it available as an e-book as well.

As for the French Dips, over winter break my youngest daughter and I visited my sister for a night. She took good care of us and when we arrived made us a really tasty sandwich. It's something I see offered on pub menus often yet never made myself. Since we visited her, I've made them for my son (his new favorite sandwich), the kids Dad, neighbors, a friend who stopped by for an unexpected lunch and myself. They're so easy and good.
If you're looking for something new to make this weekend maybe you can give this super simple sandwich a try.

French Dip Sandwiches

Roast Beef, quality deli meat, sliced thin
Provolone cheese, sliced thin
Sharp Cheddar, sliced thin
Large Fresh Sub Rolls
2 cups, au jus sauce, for dipping the sandwiches

Place the fresh rolls, sliced open faced on a baking sheet. Turn your broiler on to a low heat. Place a baking rack close to the flame. Layer the roast beef and cheeses on top of the bread and place into a heated oven and brown for about 3- 4 minutes or until bread starts to brown and cheese melts. Place single servings of au jus sauce in small bowls and serve along with the sandwiches for dipping the sandwiches into and a nice freshly tossed green salad. Enjoy!
