Re: Forassassins

After the signups, I went on random.org or something like that and randomized the list. It came out like this, with each person's target as the one above th...

Re: Sandwich✓ now Pizza (more to come)

I like the final sandwich recipe. They have almost all of those things at whole foods (good quality, and they will prepare it for you with their sandwich grill and fresh ingredients). Totally have to save these recipes as they come.

Re: Sandwich

http://www.slashfood.com/media/2006/1/bacon5.jpg I'm not really that familiar with lemon juice on a sandwich. I must try this out sometime. However, if you want to reduce the lemon juice, the avocado can always be changed into an avocado spread (similar to guacamole) which is made with lemon juice ...
