I can only go a few days without posting some kind of food. After Elizabeth's Memorial Service, her family invited my dearest and me to have lunch with them at LuLu's. in Van Nuys.
Anytime a Monte Cristo sandwich is on a menu, I don't have to make decisions. It's what I will order. Not all restaurants make it exactly the same, but they are all good, but this one was especially good as it had more layers, and the tempura batter was fried golden and crisp and not at all greasy. I ask for a side of syrup as that's my choice of toppings. However, I did use some of their homemade strawberry jam too.
If you've never had the pleasure, it's layers of white bread, turkey, ham and swiss cheese, then dipped in a batter and deep fried golden. I'm drooling as I remember the flavors.
Here's hoping you have a great week.
