    lori lynn – I had to Google the meaning of the word “whimsical”, because around here the word has a negative meaning. Thank goodness yours was a compliment.

    I love making sandwiches like this too! They are sooo yummy! I like your addition of lemon-infused olive oil!

    proud Italian cook – the ingredients were so fresh, all I had to do was to assemble.

    This is the kind of sandwich we do in my house too, rather than the closed ones. Yours looks spectacular – even though I’m not realyl a chilli eater I love the look of them!
