    Me to but I like tomato in my grilled cheese sandwich.
    That's good too! Little bit of salt and pepper as well. :)

    We do ham and tomato occasionally. I know you're vegetarian, so I wasn't suggesting it. :P

    However, I have to admit to liking the plain old grilled cheese between thick white bread. Totally unhealthy but enjoyable nevertheless.

    I'll put salt, pepper and some dried basil and oregano as well. Occasionally I'll get a plain grilled cheese sandwich as well...

    Speaking of grilled cheese, I love grilled haloumi cheese in a wrap or by itself...

    Sounds good. :). Ever try duqqa (sometimes spelled dukka)? You can find recipes on the web or if you know a good spice shop they sometimes sell it. Not sure about grocery stores in the US.

    Didn't see this read earlier. Now we're talking! I love me some haloumi! I had an amazing chicken wrap at a Greek restaurant once when I was living in Australia. As you can see I still lust after it!

    We do grill it ourselves occasionally. :)

    Great collaboration between you two, looks great.

    It really is great to see how the thread grows and gets larger day by day. Its a great source and now we reached a point where we see great new food on a daily basis.
    Really honored to be a part of it. Now enough sentimentality, let's keep it going.

    Tilapia topped with crab lump.
    Fries included I usually bring fries home for the dawgs

    The seafood at the Outback near our home is exemplary.
    Their wild salmon is my favorite.

    Claim Jumper's have the biggest portions for every dish. I think their salad could feed my family for a week:-)
    We have the Claim Jumper right close here.
    Used to go there quite a bit.
    Last time in there we really had a bad experience with service.
    I mean it really ruined the evening...never had this happen there previously.

    I guess we'll have to give them another chance.

    This place is\was my favorite restaurant of all time:
    North Woods Inn | Clearman's Restaurants

    Haven't been there in a very long time...always a fun place to go.

    LOL! You just solved a question that I've wondered about for years, when I read about Pulla bread. This statement from wikipedia puts it all together, ".. Finnish sweet roll or dessert bread flavored with crushed cardamom seeds ,,,.

    My wife's stepmother retired in northern Minnesota. Minnesota has a strong Scandinavian influence. groups like, Sons Of Norway, have a lot of pull up there. Whenever we would go up to Minnesota to visit her, she would always say, "I'll have to make my cardamom rolls, I'll have to make my cardamom rolls". I was always thinking, "What the heck is a cardamom roll? and why is she so hung up on cardamom rolls?" She would also make enough cardamom rolls so we had some to take home. To be honest, I never really liked the flavor of cardamom.

    Now it all makes sense.

    Cardamon is one of my wife's favourite spices due to her Finnish grandparents, specifically her grandmother. I like it as well. I do believe you have to be careful with it though!

    Her grandmother made the loaf and the buns a lot. She was a very good cook apparently, she ran a cafe in Finland. I didn't get the chance to try any of her food though. :/

    I've tried a lot of Finnish food and have enjoyed most of it when living in Finland. Say 'makkara' to a Fin and they go mental! :P I can't say I like all the food though. They do have some very bizarre taste combinations. :-)

    We love cardamom. It is a spice to be used with care. I put cardamom in the rice pilaf. Just a few pods about 5 for 5 cups of cooked rice. I also added whole black peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, cashews, raisins, cumin, oh an saffron - great aroma and taste along with a hint of salt. The beauty about adding whole spices is that you can remove them after the rice is cooked. And of course the main ingredient is butter, lots of it:-)
