With the heat index rising, this weeks Food Matters Project came at the right time. The chosen dish was easy, fast and did not require turning on the oven!
This weeks Food Matters Project host is Aura, of Dinner with Aura. From Mark Bittman’s Food Matter Cookbook, she chose Updated Tea Sandwiches. Check out what everyone else made in their kitchens! Mark Bittman’s original recipes can be found on page 52 in his cookbook.
