Can anyone notice what is wrong in this picture?? I won’t tell you today, but I want to see if anyone else can tell!

I can tell you what is NOT wrong with this sandwich – the taste. I thought I was on a muffin kick, but I’m thinking of turning it into a sandwich kick because the last 2 sandwiches that I’ve made have be so delicious to me. I actually let my husband pick this recipe out. A long time ago, I had tons of magazines that I didn’t want to get rid of because of the recipes. They weren’t food magazines, (which I can justify holding onto forever), but they were magazines like Family Circle or Good Housekeeping. So I started cutting out the recipes. Then I glued them to index cards, and covered them with contact paper. It’s so funny how much time I spent on these cards, because I didn’t even really cook back when I made these. I’ve said it before, but some people collect coins or stamps – I collect recipes. Well, the other day, I pulled some of these cards out and let my husband choose what would go on the menu. And this is what he chose. At first, I was a little disappointed because they didn’t sound like anything special. But I’d go as far as to say that these are pretty special. I can guarantee my husband will be asking for these again, and I know I’ll make them when he asks!

    Hey Deb..
    I think and I mean THINK it looks upside down???
    Perhaps I am right??
    I wonder if it would taste any good without onions because of my allergy! It does look tasty though!

    Hi Deborah

    Unfortunately I have some sad news about Rosie from Baking Cakes Galore, Rosie passed away yesterday. I have written up a tribute to her on my blog and I am asking everyone who knew her if they would please take some time to leave a comment. I will be printing off all the comments to pass onto her husband.
