Tuscan Club Sandwich

It's been awhile since I've posted!  The last month has been busy, flying by.  I'm working on slowing down time but it's been hard recently. 

Memorial Day kicked off with visits from all my "Colorado Cousins" and their kids.  Super fun.  Followed immediately by my birthday weekend!  The husband threw me a lovely party with some lovely gifts and a shabby-chic antique china theme!  All the guests were asked to bring me a plate or place setting of antique china.  My dream!  Now that I have the beginnings of a beautiful collection, I need to find somewhere to store everything.  The dining room table isn't a long term solution.

J did all the cooking for my b-day party, and served the most fabulous new sandwich that he has dubbed the Tuscan Club.  Seriously delicious.

Grill the chicken breasts and let cool.  Slice thinly.

Toast the english muffins.  Spread pesto on one half.  Top the english muffin with a few slices of chicken, a half (or full) slice of prosciutto and a handful of arugula.

I will admit I was somewhat skeptical of the english muffin sandwich.  I have no idea why since I absolutely adore english muffins, I guess in my mind they were relegated solely to breakfast food status. 

The sandwiches were a huge hit and a new go-to dish.
