Saturday BBQ | Chicken, Brie & Apple Sandwich

Another hot day in the city.  Time to fire up the grill, get the cold drinks ready and tackle this beautiful summer night with a delicious dinner and full stomach.

Since falling in love with the blueberries and brie in last weeks salad, I decided to apply the same concept in sandwich form.  The result a sandwich that was sweet, tart, and creamy.  Thanks to jam, apples and cheese.  Ahhh, it's a thing of beauty.  I love a good sandwich!  Now off to dip my feet in the kiddy pool, sip on a bevvy and enjoy this night.
