We were having company for lunch and I wanted make something special that would tempt the taste buds of my friends. Two of them badly need to gain weight and I wanted to be sure they ate, but I didn’t want to slave away in a hot kitchen. I just wanted an easy summer lunch that they’d love. And that’s what I made.
Here’s a lovely open-face summer sandwich that makes a delectable and easy summer lunch. It’s just delicious, judging by the rave reviews of our lunch guests the other day.
Shopping list for this summer lunch
* Sliced sourdough or other good bread. Delicious bread makes a great sandwich!
* Ripe plums, sliced, not too thin
* Goat cheese with honey infused in it
* Fig preserves
* Applewood smoked ham in thin slices. Great ham makes a great sandwich!
Aand when you’re done, this is what it looks like: There’s half a large slice of toasted sourdough below the goodies, you just can’t see it because the ham slice is so large. This summer lunch is served open-face with fork and knife.
We served it with a simple, old-fashioned potato salad (recipe to come) and corn, but could have prepared steamed green beans or some other tasty vegetable. I can’t tell you how much our guests loved this meal!
