Or I’m hoping Trump disrespects the court system again or the judiciary branch, then the Supreme Court will just shoot it down just for his disrespect of the balance of power

    KitchenWise: Cheese Sandwich Souffle is easy weeknight meal

    This recipe can be customized in all sorts of ways. You can swap out the ham for smoked turkey, prosciutto or your meat of choice. You can lose the Gruyere in favor of provolone, cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite cheese. Vegetarians in the family? Say goodbye to the meat and hello to a hearty vegetable like grilled eggplant or sauteed Portobello mushrooms. Want to make a slimmer version? Use low-fat cheese and non-fat milk. However you roll, all you'll need to flesh out the meal is a side salad or vegetable. These sandwiches are plenty hearty.
