I picked these sandwiches to make last week because they seemed like perfect hot weather food. Indeed they were quite good (as you can tell because I was so distracted I forgot to take a picture before I took a bite). The tomatoes and cucumber salad was tasty, but it was really the za'atar (sesame thyme seasoning) that made the sandwiches delicious. It gave the sandwiches a unique refreshing flavor without overwhelming the fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. There was nothing fancy about this dish, but for a simple summer meal, it was very nice.

Hello from the Midwest! On our way to Madison, we made a stopover tonight in Chicago to visit Matt's brother and some other friends of his. So I am writing this from the very comfy sofa in Brad's condo, while I am watching Top Chef on cable TV (what a luxury!). I can't complain! In the morning it is off to Madison.
Tonight we had dinner with Matt's friend Alp. When we walked out of the restaurant it was POURING in a way that it does in a Midwest, but I have never seen on either coast. We were outside maybe 5 minutes, with umbrellas, and got completely soaked. It was actually really lovely. It reminded me so much of the years I spent growing up in Madison. I can't remember the last time I got truly drenched in a rainstorm like that. It took towels and two hairdryers for the three of us to get dry, but it was worth it!
