Happy Hour

5 Jun

Finally got to have happy hour today with my coworkers. We decided on Dish for drinks and got some great deals on wine and apps.

I got an order of crispy tender calamari with a very spicy and zesty cocktail dip with a grilled cheese with caramelized onions, sautéed spinach and tomato.

Grilled Cheese Goodness: let’s kick it up a notch- as they say

23 May

grilled cheese

Foodie files: best grilled cheese ever I make this vegetable soup that I love love love- super delish- but that’s for another post. But my favorite accompaniment to my homemade veggie soup is grilled cheese. Normally I opt for just kraft singles on the whole wheat bread that we keep on hand (since that’s what I always had when I was growing up), not bad but nothing to write home about. So last night I thought I want to make these sandwiches a little more ‘gourmet’. I went to Trader Joes and got a loaf of sourdough swiped a little butter on the outside sides, melted a slice of extra sharp white cheddar and smokey Gouda and a few thin slices of granny smith apple and crisped it to golden perfection. Ooey gooey and perfectly crunchy- best I have ever had.
