Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Wheat/Rye Bread

CheeseSandwich-1thumbCheese sandwiches don’t always have to be made with white bread. This recipe uses a wheat & rye bread with all kind of seeds worked into it.

  • cut bread in thin slices
  • butter one side
  • smear mayonnaise on the other side
  • add shredded cheese mix on the buttered side
  • add second slice of bread (buttered side down)
  • heat up skillet with butter or sunflower oil
  • fry sandwiches on each side until brown

 

Hint: I like to add a lid to the frying pan. This increases the heat and “bakes” the sandwiches nicely. The mayonnaise will make the sandwich extremely crunchy.

Layers of Our Soul

Our soul,id-100358932
our conscious mind.

Has layers
on layers of emotions.

Compassion
followed by love.

Peace,
friendship,
feeling safe.

All layers in our heart.

At times,
life pulls these layers apart.

One after the other
they peel away.

Until love reveals pain,
pain turns to anger.

A soul beaten down
being raw in pain,
will only feel
anger and aversion.

Sustain your soul
every day.
Sustain a friend’s
soul every day.
With love and
compassion.

Tomato Basil Salad

Tomato Basil Salad

This salad is always a favorite. An easy to make colorful addition to your meals or as stand alone lunch on a hot day.

  • Cut down roma and cherry tomatoes
  • Chop fresh basil, parsley, chives, and onions; add to tomatoes
  • Extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar
  • season with fresh ground pepper, garlic salt, and sea salt
  • let it sit for a few minutes giving the oil, vinegar, and spices to cure the tomatoes

A little hint: Easy on the parsley, chives, and onions. They dominate in taste and will cover the fresh basil’s rather fine aroma.

Dark Nights

Sitting casual, id-100252875
talking about his
drug addictions.

Four times
he overdosed.
Four times
he came back.

“No, I don’t
want to die.
But,
I don’t know
how to live,
either.”

Waiting for
divine voice,
giving strength
to break
addiction.

Every day
a new start
for change.

No more chasing;
finding happiness
and joy
without the needle.

Tomorrow,
tomorrow
enlightenment
will come.

The Manager

I am a manager.id-10091592
I have no skills,
I only know
to boss around.

If I could do
the work.
I would!

Though,
my only given talent;
being grouchy
and organized.

Make me the
perfect
manager.

You can count
on me.
To be there,
to put the hours in.

Though, don’t
expect me
to be useful
doing work.

I am a manager.
I have no skills,
I only know
to boss around.
