Hey everyone...I'm back!! Sorry I was away for a few days, but everything is unpacked, the boxes are gone, and the new house is completely put together! We finished it all in 2 days! It's a lot of work, and staying up late, but I figure it's better to just hurry up and plow through it to try and get things back to normal as quickly as possible. That and we've moved so many times in the past 8 years that we're pretty much pro's :)
Anyway, I came across this sandwich a few weeks ago on Campbell's Kitchen, and I thought it looked good. It wasn't amazing or anything, but it was pretty tasty. The cream cheese and walnuts were very good together...unfortunately I added a wee bit too much orange zest, so that's mainly what I tasted. I bought 12 grain bread and it was great with the strawberries. I know this is an odd recipe to post in October since it's so summery, but keep in mind, it's still in the upper 80's here. My air conditioning is actually on right now! Well, it's good to be back blogging again, and I have no intention of going anywhere for quite some time, so I'll see y'all tomorrow with a new recipe!
