Genoa Salami: Recipes from an AustinMama's Road Trip
In a small bowl mix olive oil, dried herbs and garlic salt Ė all according to taste, stir and let sit. Slice baguette in half lengthwise. With a large spoon coat inside each half of bread with oil. Do not overcoat as this will lead to soggy bread. On one half layer overlapping slices of salami. Now layer tomato slices. Layer provolone. Another layer of overlapping salami slices. If using lettuce, layer on top. Do not let the tomatoes sit next to the bread or youíll have a goopy mess. Close baguette. Slice into approx. 3-4" portions. Wrap each portion in a paper napkin and insert all snugly in plastic bread bag. Twist tie TIGHTLY so as to avoid shifting. Let stew for several hours (or a couple days) in a cooler, serve each individually wrapped piece and enjoy!
Mix together tequila, triple sec, lemon
and limejuice and sugar. Shake, shake, shake or stir, stir, stir. Rub
edge of glass with lemon or lime wedge. Dip glass into saucer full of
salt. Fill glass with ice. Pour and, OH MY THATíS GOOD!!!
Black Bean and
Drain black beans. With the back of a large spoon, smash bean into a paste. On griddle warm tortillas. Spread with a thin layer of beans. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Top with another tortilla. Heat until cheese melts slightly. Flip and heat until cheese melts completely. Place on cutting board. Let cool. Slice into quarters or sixths. Layer in plastic container and keep cool.
Warm tortillas just slightly or let sit to room temperature so as to make them malleable. Spread with a thin layer of peanut butter. Drizzle a small amount of honey. Too much will be too drippy. Mix peanut butter and honey together and spread over tortilla. Roll up and slice into 2 or 3 pieces. Store in plastic container. Keep cool. These are by far the most widely accepted road snack of all. Carbs and protein keep the blood sugar level.
Make your usual pancake batter Ė whether that be from a mix or from scratch is, again, up to you. (I LOVE recipes like this!) In a blender combine the chosen veggies or legumes. Black beans are good as is broccoli, spinach or other dark greens, zucchini, squash, or a combination of your choosing. Blend the ingredients until smooth. Pour batter on top of blended veggies and blend again for just a couple seconds until mixed. Eyeball the batter and add more flour or pancake mix to bring the batter to the right consistency. Cook as you usually do your pancakes, stack and chill. Toss to serve.
