I mentioned that I was sick on Monday and Tuesday, right?
Well, yesterday afternoon I actually felt a little better and was all set to get back to my normal routine, but my sickness had other plans. I broke out in a rash all over. My eyebrows puffed up. My back was covered. My neck. My scalp. My hands and feet swelled up. It wasn't good. I tried to get into my doctor's office, but they didn't have any openings with the doctor I prefer to see, so I went to Urgent Care. They are right by my house and they are always quick, especially since I was sick to my stomach again. This way I didn't have far to travel. When the doctor saw he and my lovely rash he said it wasn't uncommon to experience a rash right after some kind of virus. In fact, he said it was part of the virus. Even so, I couldn't go to work looking like I had some kind of plague, if you know what I mean. Not good. I'm just glad the doctor gave me medicine that started working right away and seems to be doing the trick, and I'm not sick to my stomach as much now.
Black Forest Ham and Cheese and Apple Butter Paninis
black forest ham
smoked cheddar cheese (or for my Bucket, I used Havarti- a bit milder)
apple butter (the secret ingredient!!!!)
good bread... sourdough, honey wheat, etc.
Butter the outside of two slices of bread for each sandwich and spread the insides of both pieces with apple butter. Then pile on the ham and cheese. Put sandwich together. Grill on griddle or in a Panini maker. The apple butter is such a delightful surprise!
