This past fall, I had my first Bahn Mi sandwich for lunch at my favorite Pho restaurant near my house. It’s pretty much a perfect sandwich. It has rich, savory meat topped with fresh, and pickled crunchy vegetables stuffed into a baguette with mayo and cilantro. This sandwich is up there in taste value with
This past summer, I had a prolific vegetable garden. I grew tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, tons of herbs, Australian Blue pumpkins, and Delicata squash. The Delicata outperformed everything leaving me with no less than 50 squashes. I gave a lot away and probably still have a dozen left! That’s what prompted this recipe. What is
