There's A Meal In My Kitchen:Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Yesterday, I got up extra early to get things done.  Then the phone rang.  After a long day I came home to a hungry family.  I rummaged through my fridge and pantry to see what I had.  My kids told me not to worry we could always go out.  I informed them I would find something.

After a few minutes, I had the fixings for Monte Cristo Sandwiches.  Bread, mesquite smoked turkey, Black Forest Ham, Smoked Gouda Cheese, eggs, bread and Dijon mustard.  The sandwiches were served with Veggie Chips, a cutie, and a glass of milk.  Voila dinner was served.
