I know there are people out there that hate to have their food touch. Everything has to be separated and can not cross over to the other foods side. I am not one of those people. My sisters say all I eat are salads, which is mostly true, but mainly because I love a gigantic mix of stuff. In fact, you will almost always find me eating something out of bowl. I like to find what I have, throw it in a bowl and eat it as I deal with life. Maybe I’m just lazy and I rather just shovel it all into my mouth since it’s all going to get mixed up in my stomach anyways. Ha, maybe.
Anyways, today was a day I wanted a BLT, only I was missing the “T” AND the “L”, so it would have been just a B sandwich. Not exactly what I had in mind. And I do like grilled cheese sandwiches, if I have some sort of salad or soup to go with it….but again, no salad stuff and my kids were not going to allow me to sit and enjoy a very hot bowl of soup. It would have been as ice cold as it was outside by the time they let me sit down. (Yes, Mississippi finally hit 45 degrees this morning and remained cold all day with an insanely cold wind and dropping more tonight!!! So I get to put a break on my trying to keep my winter tan going with the 80 degree temps we were having! Where was I?? Oh yeah…grilled cheese…) So I looked at what I had that would go well with crispy bacon. Cheese and apples. Sold. So I made myself a Grown up Grilled Cheese. And it was amazing!
