'Lost' and food

Joel DiPippa reports:

Thursday has become "Lost" night at Chez DiPippa.  The best part about having friends over to watch the show, besides a chorus of yelling at the TV, is having some food.  Last night, aside from the usual sort of pretzels, chips & salsa, and crackers, we had some very tasty sandwiches. 

These started with a ciabatta roll sliced open.  First, a layer of prosciutto went down, then a layer of sliced strawberries, and finally a small handful of baby spinach.  A quick balsamic reduction was poured on, the top of the roll replaced, and they got a few minutes under the cast iron skillet.

These had a nice balance of the salty, sweet, and tangy flavors.  Next time, I think I will give the balsamic reduction some better attention for a fuller flavor.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
