When I first considered what food to choose for “Q”, the only thing that came to mind at first was “Quail”…. hmm….
Never in my life have I woken up and thought, “Hm, I think I’ll make quail for dinner today.”
Think about your last trip to the supermarket. Did you see quail in the butcher case? Did you even think to look? I didn’t.
That is why, Q is NOT for Quail.
Q is for QUINOA!!!
At first I dismissed the idea of “J is for Jam” altogether because I thought there would be no “dinner” recipes made with jam…
Only desserts came to mind.
Then I realized that jams would make a FANTASTIC glaze for meats… especially chicken or pork. But more on that in another post.
A “jam” that I definitely did not expect but ended up LOVING is the subject of today’s post: TOMATO Jam!
Throw out any pre-conceived notions that just entered your head… you NEED to try this!
Tomatoes are a fruit after all… why not make jam out of them?
This is amazing on a burger!!! Take a look…
A quick, low-cost sandwich for lunch!
It is almost silly to have a recipe for such a simple sandwich, but here is the recipe nonetheless: Dorito Sandwich!
You start much as you would making any other deli sandwich for yourself at lunch.
Here is everything you’ll need:
This recipe is not one I would call quick or simple, but it makes you feel like a real chef and challenges your abilities in the kitchen. Or at least it challenged mine!
Here’s a small shot of the final result:
SO worth the time and work!

I was going to end with this recipe because it was my FAVORITE of all the apple recipes… I decided against this because I wanted anyone who bought (or is going to buy) ham for their “Apple, Ham & Brie Sandwich” to get a double-duty use out of their ham. The ham with the brie and apples was a wonderful lunch, but this panini is hard to beat… we will be eating this every other week for the rest of our lives if I have anything to say about it! Really, it’s that yummy…
If you read the word “panini” and were about to gloss over this recipe because you don’t have a panini maker… READ ON!
Not only is this recipe too delicious to pass up but you can always make a grilled sandwich in a skillet. No panini-maker required! If you have one already… WONDERFUL! It’s time to pull it out!
