Ham Sammies

So, I might have mentioned that I've been sick the last 2 days, but last night, I was feeling much better.. and I was starving. I've had this recipe scribbled on the back of a piece of scrap piece of paper for a couple weeks now and I decided I had to try it.

Now this specific recipe came from one of the women I work with. I work with the best people! Everyone always gives me advice or recipes or assistance! This specific woman has given me MANY recipes and I always love them. Every single time. She's also about as big around as my pinky finger. So this isn't a "healthy" recipe, but I decided I'd earned it. Anyway (got way off subject there) I've heard that this is familiar to a lot of people and that it has about a hundred different names and variations. This is mine.

Ham Sammies
12 Hawiian dinner rolls- 1 pkg.
12 pieces good honey ham
12 small slices Swiss cheese (I used 3 big slices that I divided into 4 perfect roll-sized pieces)
Mayo or Miracle Whip

Poppy seed sauce for top:
1/2 Tbs poppy-seeds
1/4 c. melted butter
1 Tbs minced onion
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp garlic salt

Spread mayo onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or cookie sheet, very close together.

Whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients (in my family we don't measure, so i just threw rough estimates of the amounts into the bowl. i also was out of minced onions so i used onion powder). Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches.

 Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.


They were delicious! Ridiculously easy and quick! I'm in a garlic phase right now too and these had just the perfect amount! Happy, happy girl!

Also.. want to see something funny? I was all pumped up about the Ham Sammies until I put them in the oven and looked over to my sink..
Yes, those are really the amount of dishes I had. In my defense.. I had a busy week, did some cooking for others, then I was sick for 2 days and well.. the dishes just didn't get done. I'm not always perfect. You'll be happy to know though that my sink is now void of all dirty dishes! Yay me!

OH.. and that photo gives you guys a sneak peek of my 1970's kitchen. Yes people, this is what I'm dealing with.

My favorite Blogs!

I had a very specific request to elaborate on my description of "blog lover". I have 6 blogs that I read religiously and they are the reasons I fell in love with the idea of blogging. Some of them are similar and some of them are way out in left field, but I'm in love with them and the sweet women who write them!

  1. John and Sherry from Young House Love! If you are in any way into DIY, then you need to check this couple out! They are dorkably adorable. Yes, dorkably, it's a word. And they just released their new book that I begged asked for for Christmas. 
  2. Mama Laughlin from Mama Laughlin! She shares with you every piece of her life that you'd ever want to know to motivate you to lose weight WITH her. She rocks my socks. No really, she's hilarious, down to earth, and actually shares with you the real-life struggles of losing weight.
  3. Ashley and Greg from 7th House on the Left! This is actually one of my newer loves. Greg's posts just make me laugh. I don't know if it's his delivery or that he's a bit quirky, but I always find myself laughing. Ashley just comes up with some of the best decorating advice and clever, out-of-the-box DIY tips. Like I said, they're my new love and I'm still discovering all of the ways I love them.
  4. Kelle from Enjoying the Small Things! Kelle is the mother of 2 girls. One of them just happens to have down syndrome and Kelle and her family didn't find out until she was born. The delivery story she posted is heartbreaking. But she has found the beauty in all of her struggles and I just enjoy reading her little insights that she posts. And I love hearing about Nella! 
  5. Jenna from Jenna Sue Designs! This girl.. she tackles the most ridiculous DIY projects. I'm taking hard projects that I would need to hire a carpenter for and she makes them just look so darn easy. I'm also mildly obsessed with her Esty page and I have probably 15 things on my wish list from her. 
  6. Jen from iHeart Organizing! Okay, this lady is the one who started it all. I came across her page from Pinterest and absolutely FELL IN LOVE! I am sometimes a bit of a type A personality and I have a tendency to get a little OCD when it comes to where things should go and where they need to be, etc. So her organizing tips  were enough to seal the deal. But then I kept reading and she has AWESOME DIY things on her blog too. *Swoon* I just couldn't contain my excitement. If you only check out one of these, check out her's! 
 Now these are just my top 6. I also browse a few others from time to time. And who's to say I won't soon have a top 10? 20? Pretty soon I'll be sitting a my computer all day reading about other people's lives.. and I'll love every darn second of it! What are some of your favorite Blogs?

Post coming later about my amazing and quick dinner last night!
