Jason's deli rev.



    If you are lucky enough to be on Travis and McKinney ,downtown Houston there is a Jason's Deli I frequent.  It has that modern decor with black and white pictures to give it a contemporary feel. The are alot of earth tones to suggest a feeling of warmth.  Now how much warmth you get depends on the customer service.  I could tell by the tight lipped smile on the cashier's face I was being overzealous about the panini bread.  Had I regressed to being an overbearing ,pretentious, wanna be food connoisseur?Was I acting like an ego maniac looking down her nose at this poor hard working schmo just trying to earn a decent living.  I hope not.  In their defense it was pretty early not yet 8 am
and there was that pesk lunch crowd to attend to later.  There was also a brunette manager who was business like but approachable she even smiled at my corny joke.

     If you go looking for this sandwich it doesn't exist on the menu.  It's the contents of a veggie wrap
placed inside to a flaky, tender croissant which totally made up for the lack of panini bread.  The egg was firm ,not mushy.  The spinach gave it the right amount of crispyness I like, loved the color contrast and the musrooms gave it a subtle earthy note to it.     I would definitely try to talk them into this again.  If large groups of hungry,hurried business type folks don't bother you, then I would suggest coming back during lunch time they have a nice variety of soups as well.

I love visiting Jason's Deli for their soups, they always have a variety ready for take out. The smoky tortilla is also a great choice for sandwiches.
I went back here once on a Saturday afternoon when all of the trendy shops had lines were queued up to the door. As for the sandwiches --- I go cranberry turkey. Although the panini isn't crisp the way you'd expect.

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from. I am very pleased with vegetarian main dishes.We are not vegetarian or vegan just a busy Mama/college student trying to get my growing kids to eat more vegetables. I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
