A priest, a monk, and a rabbi go into a deli on 19th and.............

We have been really bad at starting the food aspect of this blog. We said we love to eat and cook, but where is the evidence? Well, let’s begin. We had one of the best meals I’ve had in a while last night, and at home no less. Very simple, and very fast.

The soup is a variation of vegetable soup. This one is full of garlic, leeks, tomatoes, chickpeas, zucchini and spinach. We keep everything really rustic in this hearty soup. But the real star of the meal was the sandwich, or if you please, the Panini. We got the bread from a local bakery, and then thinly sliced salami, ham, and provolone from the butcher. Sergio made an olive dressing from chopped green olives, olive oil, vinegar, salt, oregano, and pepper. And we finished it off with spicy mustard and a few minutes under the grill to make the cheese all melty.

Of all the posts, you should have known food would get a response from me. The soup and sandwich sound great, but the olive dressing caught my attention.
