Italian Drip Beef Sandwiches

...and back to our Lennon/Vet story

When we left off, we had decided the runt baby needed to become part of our family.

They told us that one of the vet techs had taken the babies "under her wing" and was screening all potential owners. I had thought ahead and brought all of our pre approval information from the MSPCA.

We left, after being told it would be a few days before this particular vet tech would be reading our paperwork. That was fine, as we were totally unprepared.
When Cookie passed away, we got rid of everything.

Hubby headed on home, and the girl child and I headed off to a friend's house for pedicures.
So, we are sitting at our friends. Ankle deep in warm, soapy water...and my cell phone rings.

I answer and I hear this panicked voice "OMG, the vet just called, they said we can come and get him TODAY".
Not to worry, we can handle this. Well, he can..the girl and I were a little "indisposed".

Sent him off to the vet as we finished up.
Quick stop at a pet store to get basic essentials and we headed home to met our baby!

Imagine our surprise to walk into the house and see all the cushions off the couch. Hubby dearest had made a "fort" (of sorts) to contain the new little man. His reasoning was that Lennon had seemed scared to be in a big, new area and this was helping him.

Yeah, it helped until the first minute he heard the girl child's voice. He is so her cat. As soon as he heard her, he broke through the couch cushion walls and went running.
No fear from that moment on!

To be continued...

Onto some sandwich talk!
I made these...and they were delish...but I neglected to tell Hubby and the Girl that I was using the pepperoncinis. They ate the majority of the jar. Oh well!
I made do, and they were still good, we just had no extra for the top.
When Baked Bree first posted this, that is how she showed them. Fine by me though as they are not my favorite item.

4 Lb beef roast
Pepperoncini (diced)
4 Cups beef broth
6 Tbsp Italian seasoning
Sub Rolls
Provolone Cheese

1. The night before, cook your roast in the crock pot for 8-10 hours, until it is falling apart.
2. Add to crock pot the beef broth, the diced pepperoncini, 1 cup of the pepperoncini juice, and the Italian seasoning.
3. Refrigerate all night so fat will separate (keep meat in the juice it was cooked in)
4. When ready to “cook” dinner, skim the fat from the meat
5. Heat juice and meat on the stove top until warm.
6. Toast sub rolls in oven
7. Pile high with meat and top with cheese
8. Toast sandwiches in oven until cheese is melted
9. Serve with additional pepperoncini if desired
