Fancy pants

Since I started the day off with an oh-so-classic PB&J, I figured why not continue the fun kiddy meals for dinner? On the menu - Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. :)

For the longest time, I thought grilled cheese was a Kraft Single between two slices of bread and stuck in the toaster oven. That's just how we did it in our house. It wasn't until college that I learned that making a grilled cheese did not involve a toaster oven, but butter and a pan. Hm. When I discovered the George Foreman, I decided a making a grilled cheese did not involve a toaster oven OR butter OR a pan. All I needed was the Foreman, bread and my Kraft Single. :) How do you make your grilled cheese?
Now, I do love a good Kraft Single here and there, but I saw this package of sliced Gouda tonight and had to have it. I also snuck in some leftover baby spinach because I love my leafy greens.
MMM Cheesy, spinach-y goodness! It actually would have been a little better with one slice of gouda and one Kraft Single (no imitations, please).

For the tomato soup, I wasn't going fancy at all - HAD to be a can of Campbell's. Threw in some frozen mixed veggies, some hot sauce and my tastebuds and belly were happy :)
Oh, and I may have used a tablespoon of cocktail sauce just because. :p

Dessert was some more Haribo gummy bears - I'll probably eat them until I get sick of them...that's just how it goes. And a mug of this
I drank the last of our non-caffeinated tea this morning so I thought I'd give this a shot. It was on sale at the Giant and I do love a hint of fruit in my tea. Verdict? It kinda smelled like an apple soap we got in Grenada, but thankfully it didn't taste like it. I think it might be good on ice!

Off to bed! Hopefully I can sweat some of the sick out during my run tomorrow evening!

I just found your blog and this entry left me salivating. It's too late for me to grub (and I'm lazy) but I will be making this delish sammie first thing in the morning!

I hope you get well soon!
