that was fast.

as promised, the store is up.

for your trouble, here is my favorite sandwich recipe:

throw a dash of olive oil into a skillet, placed over medium heat
lay a slice of bread down in the oil. i like 7-grain, or whole wheat, or squaw bread, but whatever floats your boat.
pour some balsamic vinegar onto the bread, til it’s reasonably wet
cover the bread with a few slices of fresh mozzarella. thickness depends on taste. I like ’em on the medium-thin side.
cover the mozzarella with basil leaves.
cover the basil with sliced strawberries, the riper the better. this would probably also be good with other fruits: mangos, apples, blackberries, cantaloupe…
cover the sliced strawberries with another layer of mozzarella.
sprinkle some salt and pepper on top of the cheese.
spread a second slice of bread with dijon mustard, preferably “country dijon” — the kind with the grainy mustard seeds.
press that sucker on top of the sandwich (mustard side down, preferably).
drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top.
press down with a spatula, and flip the whole thing.
the vinegar slice should be crunchy to the edge of burnt.
fry the other side til it’s crispy and the cheese is melted.

wallow.
