thursday is apparently sandwich & corn night

This trend has slowly been emerging for a while: on Thursday nights, we eat sandwiches for dinner. As I said in the last post, we're all about variations on a theme - last Thursday we even had corn with our sandwich, though served in a different style.

What's nice about tonight's supper is how simple everything is. There was very little preparation involved here: it was all about creating fantastic flavor combinations just by putting the right ingredients - as they are - together. The one surprise was the mozzarella cheese (the real stuff, people!) in the corn salad. Mozzarella is a very mild cheese, so this really added something texturally - something softer amid all the crunch - rather than flavor.

Italian "Burgers": pork sausage patties, mozzarella cheese, tomato, basil and mayo on a hamburger bun

Corn & Cucumber salad: corn, cucumber, cilantro, mozzarella cheese and white wine vinegar
