What .. Its July 3rd already.. pfft.
Today, the builder is fixing our hardwood floor at the bottom floor in the house, which started buckling as soon as we moved in(murphy’s law). Probably the sealing between the concrete slab and the floor is leaking moisture.
Any which way, our days are eventful this summer in the new house. And I don’t even know when I will hit publish on this post. Started writing it up yesterday night then fell asleep.
Summer Cookout cannot be complete without..
This Sandwich pictured above, has Roasted red pepper smoky dip, roasted cauliflower, roasted sweet potato slices and greens. Made with my White Sandwich Bread. The smoky cauliflower, sweet potatoes and the sweet pepper dip makes this a keeper. Roast the veggies, whip up the dip and keep ready. Put the bread slices on the grill, layer the veggies and hummus, grill up and serve. No Cheese needed. Add some vegan cheddar slices if you wish.
