Cooking Club I - Soups, Salads and Sandwiches

I could probably eat soups, salads and sandwiches every night for dinner - as long as there was a variety to choose from of course. This month's cooking club, which was hosted by Rosemary, focused on just that theme. We broke in a new member this month and she was able to contribute a lovely salad.

Here are some of the recipes:

Sandwiches Danielle - Bahn Mi

Rosemary - Avocado Mint and Chicken Sandwich with Baby Spinach
