Ham take over!

Do you think ham plays a part in every kitchen "I do" Well maybe not vegetarian eaters would argue that.
Well I am going to show you how big a part ham plays in kitchens everywhere, In most households there are pets that live indoors and outdoors and when our pets are good and do tricks for our entertainment well we treat our animals with you guessed it Ham treats for pets. When you meet that special someone and have children or not and you get up before the sunrises to make lunch for the upcoming school day nothing goes better with some healthy yogurt and potato chips maybe a candy bar or some wheat thins I guess it depends on how strict your dietary parameters are for your children. Ham comes in many forms for a lunch whether it be in between 2 slices of bread or on the side of other hearty vegetables or in a bowl of ham and bean soup, there are a thousand ways ham can become part of your kitchen.

Ham Sandwich Heaven!!

Have you ever got up in the morning and had everything in order from the clothes you have layed out the night before to the take home work from the office filed and ready to go , get  twenty feet out the door and forget your lunch and on top of that forget to even make your lunch the night before, well I have. I am gonna give you 4 steps on how to make the quickest and tastiest Ham Sandwich in just 2 minutes.

Step 1. Ingredients:White bread (2 Slices),Smithfield Ham deli sliced (1/2 pound),Lettuce Head, 
 Duke's mayonaise(1teaspoon),common mustard(1 teaspoon),1 slice of
 american cheese, 1 butter knife.

Step 2.(People always get this part wrong The sandwich has to be put  together properly)

Step 3. This is how the magic happens,
Start with Alumnium Foil layed out large enough to cover the sandwich where no air can  infilitrate Lay the bread out side by side, on 1 slice of bread spread the mayonaise and mustard  on the other ,"Remember use the correct amount of mustard and mayonaise because you don't want to taste to much of one or the other"!  A lettuce head can be tricky because where most people make a mistake making the perfect  sandwich and losing time is slicing the lettuce you don't want to do that because you could use way to much or to little. Basically if the lettuce is fresh strip a leaf off maybe 2 large enough to cover both
slices of bread if you are using 2 pieces. I recomend 1 Leaf , now the easiest part Remove the
cheese from its plastic lay the cheese on either side if you are using 1 leaf of lettuce lay the cheese  on the other side. Now for my favorite part of a great sandwich and hopefully yours the ham use  about 3 slices depending on the thickness of the ham and lay the ham over the cheese.

Step 4.  Finishing Touches:  Combine both bread slices and remember (WRAP TIGHTLY) with the alumnium and get  your tail to work on time and the envy of your breakroom!!
