The other day I was hankering for a cheese sandwich. I don't eat cheese sandwiches with much regularity, except when our work schedule demands it. Usually these sandwiches consist merely of homemade bread, mayo, cheese and, if it's available, a bit of greenery (lettuce, mustard greens, or whatever).
This time I was looking for something a little more exciting. So I went out to the greenhouse and picked a fair portion of kale. On both slices of the freshly baked bread I spread a nice layer of peppered olive oil mayonnaise, then on the bottom slice I also spread a bit of coarse grain mustard. On the top slice I laid the layer of fresh kale, some thin red onion slices, and a few slices of homemade pickles. I laid on the slices of cheese and dug in. It was delicious!
So now you're wondering where the fries come in aren't you? Well, the next night I wanted to cook a relatively uncomplicated meal, so I cut several potatoes into fries, coated them with a light dusting of flour, pepper and salt, and fried them up in the skillet in plenty of corn oil. (I learned this method of making fries from a woman I met shortly after moving to Tennessee 16 years ago.) While I fried potatoes I made a sandwich for each of us.
And Voila! Mega Cheese Sandwiches with Fries!
