Turkey and Asiago "Sub"

I started this blog March 2nd, 2011, when my 7 year old noticed that I was always looking at other blogs and their food and their recipes.  She said that my food was good enough to have my own blog, and she proceeded to create a web site online.  Not to be outdone by my own 7 year old, I went about creating Red Kitchen Recipes.  Then I hoped that her entrepreneurial spirit would make us lots of money someday.
Buttered bread is always better!  I learned this from my husband, who loves burgers.  He would grill the burgers, and my job was to butter the buns.  The first time he assigned me to the task, I tasted the difference!  My husband makes the best grilled burgers!
At the Subway that we frequent, the people know Gianna well for ordering her own sandwich, which is the same every time, just like her Daddy.  The first time I asked if she wanted to order her own (at the age of 5) the Subway employee said, "She always does!"  I think he may have even snapped his fingers in a Z.  He's a bit sassy.

So when Gianna, now 9,  said, "Mommy, can you bring me Subway for lunch?"  Of course I said, "I have no idea what you want on that!"  She then wrote down in order exactly how she ordered her sub.  When I went to pick it up, I made sure to be extra attentive in how they made it this time.  So now, I can make a good enough sub like Subway so that she is happy enough with what I make for her.  And she hasn't asked for a fast food sandwich after school or during school in a long time, to my relief!  I'm sure it's understandable...anytime a mom can make her child a homemade meal that satisfies as much and may save money, it's a win - win for the mom and the child! 

Tonight my mom friends and I hold our children so much tighter, it almost suffocates them, and we pray together for those who have experienced the loss of their own.
