Let’s Have a Picnic!

This is the best time of year to have a picnic because the weather is nice and warm! Pack a picnic and take your special someone to the park with a jean blanket and a basket full of goodies. Go to a resale shop and find a vintage-ey picnic basket, create some delicious new recipe for sandwiches which I will provide you below and bring a hot water carafe with tea if you would like! Below is a recipe for honey mustard ham and cheese sandwiches. We hope you will try them out and then plan a picnic with your honey! Whether you would like to go to a  neighborhood park, the Albuquerque zoo or the Botanic Gardens, or maybe the top of Sandia Crest – try out this recipe and maybe add your favorite hot tea or soda!


Honey Mustard Ham and Cheese Sandwiches


You Will Need:
4 ciabatta rolls

16 slices of ham (or turkey! Or chicken!)

8 slices of swiss cheese

½ cup mayonnaise

2 tbsp. honey

1-2 tsp. dried mustard

1 tsp. poppy seeds

(If you would like: 1 tbsp. melted butter and ¼ tsp. poppy seeds. I find it gives it extra yummy flavor!)


What You Will Do:

Slice the ciabatta rolls lengthwise

Divide the meat of your choice evenly among the rolls

Prepare honey mustard by combining mayo, honey, dried mustard and 1 tsp. of poppy seeds

Divide honey mustard evenly among the sandwiches

Combine 1 tbsp. melted butter and ¼ tsp. of poppy seeds (if you decided to use them!) and brush this on top of the sandwiches

Bake them on 350! Leave them in the oven for approximately 15 – 20 minutes
