This is one of those sandwiches that I wish I would have been introduced to me when I was younger. It took 28 years of my life before someone introduced to me to these delicious pieces of bread and meat and cheese. If you've never had one you owe it to yourself to have one. I bet you looking at the ingredients and thinking that they don't really sound that good. Trust me they are insanely good. So give this a shot and let me know what you think. If you have any questions please let me know.
* You can use whatever kind of pork you'd like. It simply needs to be something cooked through and delicious. I used some left over pork chops I had.
* Traditionally these are made with baguettes but I like this method better. I used como bread.
* If you have a panini press use it.
* Makes 4 sandwiches.
- 8 slices of crust bread
- 2 tablespoons or so of yellow mustard
- 8 slices swiss cheese
- 1/2 pound thinly sliced ham (I used black forest because it's awesome)
- 1/2 pound thinly sliced roasted pork
- 3 dill pickles sliced thin
- 1 stick of butter melted
1. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat.
2. Let's make some sandwiches. On all the pieces of bread cover it with the mustard, then the cheese. Then place the pork, ham and pickles on half of the pieces of bread then cover them with the other halves.
3. Put some butter into the center of the pan then add 2 sandwiches on top of it then cover with a sheet pan. When 3 minutes are up rotate the sandwiches 180 degrees to get an even toast. Wait 3 more minutes then cover the top with butter then flip. Do the same thing for this side until you get the desired toastiness.
4. Remove from the pan, cut in half and enjoy. I like mine with a light salad or fries or something else delicious.

Here's another person I haven't seen since high school but we have kept in touch via social media sites (I know you know what I'm talking about). She invited me into her home to take pictures of her family including a 2 year old girl named Cameron and a 3 week old newborn named Taylor. Let me tell you they are cuter in person. Not to mention it's really nice to see a couple who is still so in love after being together for quit some time.
Anyways this was my first chance at taking pics of a newborn. My wife, who supports me 100% in anything I want to do was so stoked that I got this opportunity that she immediately went to the craft store and bought all kinds of fabric and props for little Taylor.
We went over there in the morning and spent about 3 hours taking pics of the kids, the couple then all of them together. It really was a blast and everyone did really well with having us in their home.
I really like how the pics turned out but I am always looking for feedback. If you get a moment please take a look and let me know what you think. Also if you are looking for pics please let me know.

Here's another new one for me, grad pics. Now I never got these done so I really had no idea how to approach this shoot.
I know that's it's supposed to be the subject just kind of lounging around being themselves because these are what they send to their family members for their graduation parties and such.
So I took it pretty seriously and I am not going to lie I had a great time taking them.
I spent a considerable amount of time editing them because shooting int the sun is a challenge in itself.
Check them out and let me know what you think.
If you are looking for pics please let me know I am very interested.
