  Quick Food Ideas   BROILED CHEESE SANDWICHES
& CREAM OF TOMATO SOUP   These are open-faced sandwiches.
Toast Bread (sliced Sour Dough is excellent), Butter it, Add thick slices of Block Cheddar Cheese (Salt if you like) and Broil until Cheese Bubbles.   PIZZA BREAD (Sliced Sour dough is best)
Each person makes their own.   Open-faced individual pizzas.
Toast Bread, smear on Marinara or Ragu (some kind of tomato stuff). Add some Italian Seasoning or Oregano and Basil, maybe some Parsley.
Add any or all of the following:
salami - cheese - olives - Parmesan Cheese - mushrooms - lunch meat - pineapple etc., basically clean the fridge.
Broil until their good and bubbly. Good alone or with Vegetable Soups like minestrone.   TUNA ON ENGLISH MUFFINS
& CREAM OF TOMATO SOUP   Make Tuna as usual. Toast English Muffins. Butter and Spread on Tuna (generously). Add Lettuce.
Manning's Cafeteria used to serve these. I used to look forward to stopping in on my way home from shopping. They were on the corner of 4th and Market and just happened to be on the way to the Greyhound Bus Depot where I caught the bus home to Brisbane.   FRIED EGG SANDWICHES   Should be on plain bread. Butter both pieces of bread (add a little mayonnaise if you like). Fry eggs in butter, break the yolk and turn but don’t let it cook more than a second, some of the yolk should be runny. Put egg on bread add a dash of salt & a twist of pepper.   BACON & EGG SANDWICHES   Put butter & a small amount of Mayonnaise on each slice of bread.
For each sandwich — fry 2 (or 3 depending on length of bacon) strips of bacon cut in half. When you turn the eggs put the bacon under them so they fuse.   STRANGE SANDWICHES   Just a few combinations you may not have thought of:
  1. Peanut Butter, Mayonaise & Lettuce
  2. Peanut Butter, Mayonaise & Sweet Pickles
  3. Cream Cheese & Green Olives (Bill grew up on these)
  AVOCADO & CHILI   Avocado halves topped with Chili (no beans) Top with any of the following: Sour Cream, Salsa, Sliced olives, shredded cheese, chopped tomato. You know... ”Mexican Stuff”.
This one is a James Beard Special... Way to go James!   AVOCADO & SHRIMP   Avocado halves filled & mounded with shrimp.
Options:
  1. Top with Thousand Island Dressing.
  2. Top with Cocktail Sauce.
  3. Mix shrimp with mayonnaise & Celery & Green Onions and use either dressing or cocktail sauce..
