I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

One day last week I was lucky to be able to have my three year old Great Grand Daughter, Lydia for most of a day. I always like to have a little project planned to do when she comes, I don’t want her to be bored when she is here. So I decided that we would give my baby dolls baths, I have eight of them. The day before I washed all of the doll clothes, I have never out grown my love for dolls. I keep them all piled in a doll wood crib which I realize could be considered an antique as it has to be at least 70 years old. Lydia isn’t a real doll girl but she does usually get them out of the crib when she is here and she lines them up. She lost interest in the bathing but I had a good time with the project, now they are all clean and dressed back in the crib waiting to be played with, they are reminders of my happy childhood of hours playing dolls with my sister! We always compromised I would play cowboy with her and she would play dolls with me!
Today I am sharing a favorite sandwich recipe to go with one of those cool weather soups we make in cool weather!
Grilled Roast Beef Sandwiches
1 ( 4 oz. ) can chopped green chilies, drained
2 T. mayonnaise
1 T. Dijon mustard
10 slices rye bread
5 slices Swiss cheese
10 thin slices deli roast beef
2 T. butter or margarine, softened
Salsa or picante sauce
Combine chilies, mayo and mustard. Spread about 1 T. on slice of bread. Top half of the bread with 1 slice of cheese and 2 slices beef. Cover with remaining bread. Butter the outsides of bread. Grill sandwiches on a griddle or large skillet over medium heat until both sides are golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve with salsa or picante sauce for dipping if desired. Yield 5 sandwiches.
Have a good week and stay safe!
