never say never

"A thousand posts by summer - pshaw, how will you do that mister doggybloggy" I will tell you how.....cheating - thats how.

Here is the first of, hopefully many, guest posts and this one is brought to you by my wonderful blog friends down in Georgia - TAVOLINI!


Guest Post—Tomato, Artichoke and Havarti Sandwich


My favorite aspect of blogging, (beyond actually just sharing my thoughts and opinions) is the blogging community. It's great to get to know your fellow writers. Tavo and I have read many of their blogs regularly for years, we comment back and forth, we see each other grow and change.

One of our early readers, DoggyBloggy, was instrumental in keeping us blogging as well as entertaining us with the food he was cooking and eating. Needless to say, I felt more than honored to do a guest post on Chez What. So, how about some Artichoke, Havarti and Tomato Sandwich?

We are in the process of moving back into our home, after a major house fire and a few months of DIYing a little rental bungalow we'd purchased in Atlanta.

We definitely had to take a break from moving and opening boxes to eat every now and then, but there was no time for cooking anything elaborate. (Check out the Felix Berroa in the bed of the truck)

I did find this nice, ugly gem of an heirloom tomato at the market...

That, combined with a bit of pumpernickel, some artichokes, yellow mustard and a couple slices of Havarti yielded a quite the sandwich. I would have added some spinach, too, but mine had gotten a bit questionable. The best way to do this is just broil each ingredient, then layer and broil the next. It wasn't necessary with the heirloom, but roasting can definitely help an off season tomato taste a bit better.


(This is particularly good when coupled with a nice beer--Georgia started carrying Fat Tire just this last week--that works!)


Sincerely, Lini

pigpigscorner said...

lol...1000 posts?? Why?

doggybloggy said...

snugs: posts are posts

pigpig: I am at 812 posts total and I want to hit the big 1000 faster if possible...no reason...

TavoLini said...

You'll get there ;) Thanks for hosting!

finsmom said...

Sounds yummy to me!
1000 posts is so many! Im not even at 100 yet!
Good luck :)

snugs said...

rule#231 in the book of blogging rules says that in order to claim 1,000 posts you must author 1,000 posts, no and's if's or butt's doggy :)

Marjie said...

heirloom tomatoes are best! And I don't think a grilled cheese with tomato can be beaten, no matter what else you want to add.

The Diva on a Diet said...

Cool! I like guest posts because they introduce me to fantastic bloggers I don't already know about. Thanks, doggy ... and rock on to 1,000! It all counts!

Cate O'Malley said...

Anything with Havarti is a total score - yum! Starting to pack up our house to move this summer too ... sooo not looking forward to the process, but happy to be leaving this house behind.

Sweta said...

oneshotbeyond said...

Fightin' Mad Mary said...

Doggy i am so impressed that you have set goals for yourself!

Lini this is a fantastic sandwich and I love the combo of flavors...especially the addition of the artichoke.

teresa said...

this looks like such a great sandwich, good way to get to know other food bloggers!

Ramya Vijaykumar said...

Sandwich looks yummy and I love the addition of artichokes in that!!!

Tanya Kristine said...

so WAY cheating!

Pavithra said...

Good idea to finish the dead line..

Jenn said...

Love reading TavoLini's blog!

I feel like that a grilled cheese and tomato now.

Just telling it like it is said...

Wow I love that idea...having guest...Mind if I borrow it?

doggybloggy said...

A big thanks to Tavolini for this wonderful guest post and nice peak into their exciting life....

Reeni♥ said...

Great technique to broil each layer, and get it all hot and ooey-gooey. And pumpernickel makes it even better!

mermayd said...

that look so great!!! great "guest post". p.s. i believe this is a fair way to get to 1000, when johnny carson or jay leno hit their 1000th show mark, were points deducted when they had a guest host??? i doubt it. don't be so blogging territorial, people!

mermayd said...

tavolini-and also, thanks for the link to felix berroa--what a fantasic discovery for me! i went to his page & his art is just wonderful.

lisaiscooking said...

And I thought our DIYing was getting crazy. It was nothing compared to what you've been through! The sandwich sounds great.

I'm on the fence. Can't decide if guest posts should count.
