    Oh yum! This reminds me of the tomato mozarella sandwich we get at Tim Hortons here. I was wondering what was so special in it, but I ordered it because it fit my budget – hehe – and it was surprisingly delicious! This looks so good… Yeah, the girls have been messing up the kitchen and just yesterday broke one of my prop glasses in the process… hehe…

  4. Congratulations to the older one. Lovely sandwiches to brighten up the day.
