take my word for it wednesday.. cuban style grilled cheese sandwich
today is wednesday and i ask you to take my word for it.. usually because the picture doesn't do the dish justice.. which is the case today.. this sandwich was amazing.. not like any other.. ohh so good.. i made cuban pork on sunday.. i followed my recipe here.. with a few changes.. i changed the cooking time and temp.. i will share the new version with you next week.. but let me tell you it was amazing and we couldn't wait to have cuban sandwiches the next day.. i have made them before and followed a more traditional recipe, that post here.. but this time i jazzed them up.. made them a little different... i used sour dough.. instead of thin sliced dill i used "wickles" which by definition on the jar means wicked pickles.. they were so spicy.. soo good.. i didn't have swiss so i used pepper jack and horseradish white cheddar.. they really were good.. sadly the pictures are blah.. it's getting dark so early.. and i live 30+ miles form where i work so when i leave at 5 and get home at 5:45 and then cook it's not until 6:30 and it's pitch black.. so sorry they don't do the sandwich justice.. your going to have to take my word for it.. they are yummy.
