Cuba: Day Two

When I heard that we were making Cuban food for MKMW, the first thing that I thought of was the yummy Cuban sandwiches that we used to eat in Tampa. EVERYONE ate these. In fact, no one actually said, "I'll have a Cuban sandwich." When you order one, you simply say, "I'll have a Cuban."
(Sounds kind of like you're asking for Ricky Ricardo, "one cuban light on the babaloo.")
Anyhow... after making the roast pork, I suddenly found myself in possession of all the fixings for a cuban sandwich. Roast pork sliced thin, ham, swiss cheese (I substituted with provolone), mustard, mayo and most importantly a sandwich-sliced pickle. ( I don't even like dill pickles and I never put them on my sandwiches, but I love this.) Pile all that up and press it in a panini maker,or between two frying pans, like I did, and there you have it.... One of the best sandwiches ever!

Colleen, this has nothing whatsoever to do with your blog but Dad wanted me to tell you this. Are you ready? He wants you to know... "It is now a bank." I think he wants you to figure out this cryptic message. Good luck! You'll need it!
