"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

2 pkg dry yeast
2 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 C warm water
1/4 C prepared mustard

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 C flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt. Stir in warm water, mustard, and butter. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth, cover and let rise about 10 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a rectangle. Transfer to greased baking sheet. Spread ham, cheese, pimentos, and pickles lengthwise over center third of the dough. With a sharp knife, make cuts from filling to dough edges at 1 inch intervals along sides of filling. Alternating sides, fold strips at an angle across filling.
Cover loaf; let rise in a warm draft-free place until almost doubled in size about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375 for 35 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet to wire rack. Slice across and serve warm. Refrigerate left overs.
