Creamy Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

My family knows that it's time for me to go to the store when we start having "made up meals!"

We're to that point again this month!

It comes around so often!

I had to take my boy cherub to an activity -- but before we left, he ran back in the house.  When he got back in the car he said,  "Dad's gone.  Where is he?"

"Oh, he ran to the store for me."

"Yeah!"  My boy cherub said!

"Oh!  Don't get too excited, he had to get stuff for me to take to lunch tomorrow!"

So, that was my first clue that we're needing stuff -- the boy cherub is noticing!

The second clue is tonight, we're getting a "made up meal."  But using our trusty rating system at dinner, I decided this was worthy to post -- in case you're needing a "made up meal" too this week!

This recipe will drive some of you crazy!  I just started mixing things in, without measuring, going by looks and taste.  You'll have to do the same!  I'll give you a "guess" of how much I used, but remember, it's only a gauge!  Always start with less and add more if necessary -- that's kind of how I do anyway!

Creamy Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

1/2 container of cream cheese spread, softened
1/4 cup finely chopped purple onion
1/3 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
2/3 cup finely chopped cooked ham (or chicken)
4 Hawaiian deli rolls

Combine cream cheese, chopped onion, shredded cheese, and chopped ham in a bowl and mix well.

Place 1/4 of spread on bottom of Hawaiian deli roll and spread to the edges.  Toast the bottoms (with the mixture) and tops of the rolls until golden. 

Serve warm with a side of fruit and some chips. 

Now, my girl cherub, while munching on her new sandwich, said, "Mom, this would be good as a hot dip, with pita chips or something like that!"

There ya go, sometimes a "made up meal" just hits the spot!
