National sandwich month (USA) was in August, but I’m aiming for pear season, so I feel right on queue.

Synergy Pasta. A simple meal I often make where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Get the upperhand with a Strata. A gem of a savory, four-food group, all in one dish, perfect for a make-ahead breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
