A Little Taste of Home

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.

  1. We just had ham, apple and cheddar panini's this weekend, yum! I will have to try your recipe with the cheddar, cinnamon and apple. We are in prime apple season here in New York right now. Glad to hear you guys are doing well, I love seeing all of your pictures :)
