The other day, we bought a ton of apples. I was in a very autumn-ish mood when I bought them, and I had all these lofty plans to make caramel apples and apple crisp and homemade apple sauce. None of this actually happened, of course, because I ran out of time. But, I did get really adventurous today and decided to attempt to recreate the Marti's Favorite sandwich from Marti's at Midday back in Athens. It's easy-peasy:
I toasted two pieces of nine-grain bread, then melted some sharp white cheddar on top of the bread in the toaster oven. I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top of the melted cheese (it sounds weird, but trust me). Then, I chopped my apple into thin slices and spread out the apple on top of the cheese on one of the bread slices. Put 'em together, and you have a Marti's Favorite. It makes such a cozy and delicious autumn lunch (or snack), and it sort of quenched my homesickness :)
I got this picture from A Cup of Jo, which is one of my favorite blogs. I think she used a different recipe, but it's the same basic ingredients and idea. Yum.
