Well, I learned a handy little trick with this sandwich, I will, from now until the day I die, be making all my grilled cheese sandwiches with herbed butter. Who knew that adding a little herbs de provence to some butter would be so friggin good?!
This was a wonderful lunch, and so easy to prepare. Plus I like the baking method since it allows you to make as many or as few sandwiches as you want. I definitely recommend giving this a try.
Also...one more thing. A bit off the topic of food, but still something just as important to me. I wanted to take a sec and recommend an awesome new Indie Author, Matthew Mather. He's the author of the amazingly creative 'Atopia' series...
and it happens to be only .99 cents at Amazon right now. I've been reviewing books on Amazon regularly for the past 9 years now (I WILL be reviewer #1 someday, I swear it!), and I've always been an avid reader. There will never be a time when you ask me "What are you reading right now?" and I say "Nothing"...doesn't happen.
So when I recommend something, such as this series, it's not because anyone asked me to (though I do have a soft spot for indie writers since they put their whole heart into their stories. They're not just knocking back another book with the same 'ol tired formula for some big publishing house), but it's because I truly love the story. I read all 6 books in this series (but paid for them individually, so this is a great deal), and it blew me away.
Just a note though, it is a dystopian/apocalyptic story, so if you normally read 'bodice rippers' or feel-good family fiction, this may not be up your alley ;)
Ok guys, have a wonderful weekend! I will be heading down to NYC tomorrow with my sister and bro-in-law for Comic Con and I am super excited about it!! I wanted to dress up as Princess Leia (who will be there signing along with The Emperor!!!!), and Padme Amidala, but she said no ;)~
Plus next week I'll be doing all Halloween recipes, so I'm looking forward to that too. Alrighty, that's it for me today...see ya Monday!!
