Food: Fancy Grilled Cheese II
Last week we happily enjoyed our Fancy Grilled Cheese dinner with our friends, J. & D. Little did we know before planning the dinner that the day we would consume these delicacies would also be National Grilled Cheese Day! Boy did we celebrate (and so did Louise the next day, apparently).
Like last time, we simply used chunks of mozzarella, caramelized onions, sauteed spinach, and bacon for these sandwiches. Note to self: use thinly sliced, non-mapley bacon for future sandwiches.
For sides, we had a mix of fruit and pre-made waffle cut sweet potato fries. I wanted to make a dipping sauce for them and found a simple recipe online somewhere (forgot to bookmark it). It consisted of three ingredients: fat-free sour cream, vanilla extract, and brown sugar. I kind of estimated the amounts, but probably used 1C sour cream, 1/4C brown sugar, and 2 tsp vanilla extract.
I'd say our First Annual National Grilled Cheese Day Celebration was a success!
