Happy 11-11-11 or Veterans Day!
It’s gloomy outside today in Encino and it’s Veterans Day. The one day a year set aside to honor military veterans, past and present. I salute all! I need a little sunshine to lift my spirits today. The best way I know how is to create one of my cheerful little recipe. So small in the scope of things but sometimes the small things get a smile our faces or taste good in our bellies!
This is my creative egg sandwich. Yes, I too get bored with food and the same o’ thing. I try to get creative when I have business peeps coming over for a quick lunch meeting. I love these little mouth watering spicy sandwiches.
Be creative this weekend!
