Cloak and Dagger Sandwich Shrouded by Hey Champ, Baby Baby, Skalmold and E-Dubble

Thanks to Longfellow, Dickens and ninjas "cloak and dagger" came to mean silent assassins or spies. The cloak hides the weapon of destruction. Around the beginning of February I bought a log of goat cheese. I used a bit and then put the rest in the fridge. It sat there. Every week, when it came time to plan the menu, I forgot about it. I finally decided to turn it into a sandwich. When I reached for it I realized that the outside had molded. Not a problem, I cut off the mold and used the rest. Baguette created the perfect "cloak." Of course, J-Fur refused her half so I ate this whole thing myself.

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the yellow squash, zucchini and asparagus on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over top. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

2. Spread goat cheese on each side of the baguette. Top with vegetables. Eat and pray.

Chicago's Hey Champ released their latest single "Anything at All" the other day. The song sounds big while treading lightly across lyrics of possible futures and being under impressions. Threat level: low.

"Breakin" by Baby Baby starts with a little pitter pitter on the drum sides. Very subdued when compared with the next three and a quarter minutes. Things start getting crazy when Fontez Brooks begins his gravelly slurring lyrics. Not what was expected but still manageable. Once the chorus kicks in however, its over. You are left with no option but to take cover, as the song breaks down into hoots and hollers and group choruses. Imagine Georgia's answer to Soophie Nun Squad. Fun is a major understatement. Threat level: thru the roof.

Skalmold is an Icelandic metal band that was featured on April's M.A.P playlist. In their song "Kvaoning" the band combines Nordic folk instrumentation with Icelandic poetry for an almost 8 minute thrill ride. Well, it is thrilling if you like that sort of thing. Threat level: depends on how badass you are.


Also good for this sandwich is the new E-Dubble song "Changed My Mind." Dude just knows how to bring it.
