Muffaletta


Several folks have asked me what a muffaletta is. I thought it could be found all over the country, but apparently not. This picture was taken after we got home, so it was cold. It's best eaten hot. A huge round loaf loaded with Italian meats and olive spread. Yummy!

I've got a horrible cold. I dosed up on antibiotics while I was in Louisiana so as not to get them sick, and I was feeling great on Monday. Well, yesterday I got sick again, and it's a full strength cold now. I'm going to head over to the doctor tomorrow, but he probably will tell me just to keep doing what I'm doing. I think it just has to run its course. The antibiotics only delayed this thing until I got home.

When I got to the airport in New Orleans, I realized I had left my phone on the counter charging back at Don's house. He called me Monday night to tell me he had put it in the mail to me, just regular mail. The post office there told him that an Express Mail envelope wouldn't get here until Wednesday (today), so he decided just to send it regular mail. It was in my mail box tonight. Not bad for four bucks worth of postage!

I appliqued a couple of Dutch Treat blocks on the flights to and from home. I could have finished the second one, but the flight back was a tad bit bumpy. Thought it best to put it away after I kept poking my finger!

Really nothing to blog about today. Ate some potato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. I couldn't taste either of them but at least my tummy is full! LOL

OOH I haven't had a muffaletta in a long time! But I do keep a jar of olive salad in my fridge at all times.

Sorry you're sick but at least you staved it off long enough to enjoy your trip. :-)

Cheers!

I like the sounds of the sandwich but not green olives---I did try one though on a visit to New Orleans years ago though.

Potato soup is what my mother always fixed for me when I had a cold.

You mentioned Dutch Treat..... Are you working on one? How many blocks have you done?
