Saturday Together & The Saturday Sandwich

February 16, 2011

I’m awake at 4:30AM as usual, but it did give me time to have my quiet time & write my morning pages before everyone else began to stir.


After breakfast, we decided to visit a nearby attraction which draws visitors from around the world – The Jack Daniel’s Distillery. Since none of us are dark spirit aficionados, we had never tried Mr. Daniel’s famous No. 7, we did, however recognize that significance of the industry that has grown up in a town whose population is less than 400 people & serves Tennessee Sippin’ Whiskey to the world.

Information gathered on the tour was fascinating…at least to me, & the fact that this enterprise distills fine whiskey in a “dry” county… well, only in Tennessee. After the tour my girlfriends enjoyed the lemonade & coffee proffered (no serving liquor in a dry county!) while I headed to the White Rabbit Bottle Store in the Welcome Center to purchase commemorative bottles to take with us.
We sampled (in the privacy of our cabin) Jack Black – known as old No. 7, Gentleman Jack & a Single Barrel Select. We could smell the oak & taste the vanilla & caramel. Though we can now semi-intelligently discuss the homegrown elixir, I don’t think we are going to be regular Jack drinkers in the near future.

We returned to the cabin well after noon & ready for lunch. Curried Carrot Soup & Chicken Vegetable Soup were heated, while I made a special, hearty sandwich for us.

The Saturday Sandwich


  • Sliced Bologna
  • Loaf of Bread
  • American Cheese Slices
  • Peanut Butter
  • Butter


  1. Warm a small skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Place enough butter in the skillet to keep the bologna from sticking; “Fry” the bologna – browning it & heating it through.
  3. Place a slice of cheese on a piece of bread.
  4. Remove bologna from the pan & place it over the cheese.
  5. Add more butter to the pan; place the currently open-faced sandwich in the skillet.
  6. On another slice of bread smooth a layer of peanut butter & cover the sandwich in the skillet, peanut butter toward the bologna.
  7. Turn the sandwich over, adding more butter if necessary, to brown the bread on both sides.
  8. Remove to a plate & cut into triangles.
  9. Serve immediately.
