Did you know that today is the National Sandwich Day? Neither did I until I saw it all over twitter and bloggosphere. Who would have thought that when I was planning our menu.... How lucky!
And boy did I pick a good sandwich for tonight - steak sandwich with sauteed mushrooms and spinach.
It was absolutely divine. You should make it now. No, run to make it now. As always, the FFG family went for a short walk, got Kiki to bed and than the chef and I sat down to eat the most flavorful sandwich I have ever had.
The star of the sandwich was dijon mustard. It perfectly complemented the sauteed steak and mushrooms. One part that I could have easily gone without, spinach - it tasted wilted, old....oh well. Other than the spinach, the sandwich was a pure perfection. The crusty wheat baguette, parmesan cheese, sauteed steak and mushrooms...what's not to love.
