This is so not a food blog that it almost cracks me up that I’ve put about three recipes up in the past month. But since I got several inquiries as to what in the world these are, I present you with the recipe for Poppywiches!

1/2 C butter
1/4 t horseradish mustard (I use whatever brown, spicy mustard I happen to have on hand)
1/8 t Accent (this is like some old school salt alternative. Think salt would be fine)
1/4 C chopped onion
1 t poppy seeds

Melt butter, mix all that together, then spread on buns. Add shaved ham and swiss cheese. Wrap each sandwich in foil and bake for 20 minutes at 350. I’ve substituted the cheese with all manner of other cheeses and have used ham that isn’t (gasp) shaved, though I really like the shaved texture. I always double this recipe and doubled it makes about 8 sandwiches.

To do these in the crock pot, I used my biggest pot that has a “keep warm” level just below “low.” I put them on low for about 15 minutes and then switched it to keep warm and they stayed in the pot for 5 hours and were fine!

This recipe comes courtesy of Craig’s mom and they’ve been on the menu for ten years now.


Will You Still Love Me If I Confess That I Like Country Music?

Just curious.

I’ve found myself listening to the local country station more than the pop station lately. I just added Carrie Underwood’s Some Hearts to my Your Music queue and am (sheepishly) excited about it coming soon. In the past few months I’ve iTuned Jesus Take the Wheel, Boot Scootin’ Boogie, This One’s For the Girls and just flatt out bought an entire album of Rascal (pun only for those who have any idea of what I’m talking about…).

Oh, and last month I started drinking coffee for the first time too. And I sort of like it.

What’s happening to me???
