I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Grilled Veggie Sandwich

This is my daughter Autumn and niece Jacki's favorite sandwich for me to make them. Put what ever veggies you like on the sandwich. I think the sauce is what make this so tasty.

*1/2 cup sliced green bell peppers
*1 small zucchini, sliced
*1 small yellow squash, sliced
*1/4 cup mushrooms
