This word for the day is brought to you by Mr. Webster
and the third edition of his New College Dictionary:
croque-monsieur n. a sandwich filled with ham and cheese,
either dipped in egg batter or buttered
on the outside, and toasted or grilled.
After shoveling snow for an hour in the freezing cold, he
was delighted to find that his sweetie had fixed him a
croque-monsieur for lunch.
