It’s a grilled cheese for dinner kind of night over here.
I was craving simple comfort food after a crazy day. I have had a serious love for grilled cheese sandwiches since high school. My favorite combo used to be just bread, muenster (so stringy!) and butter but I’ve broadened my grilled cheese horizons a bit. I kept it pretty easy tonight with cheddar, manchego and tomatoes grilled on wheat with salted butter in a cast iron skillet. Summer fruit on the side – watermelon, strawberries and blueberries.
I did get my greens + protein in at lunch. Spinach salad with tomatoes, bacon, fresh mozz, grilled salmon and a blueberry vinaigrette.
Okay, I’m off to relax and enjoy something almost as comforting as a grilled cheese, a glass of red wine! Getting myself on the couch ASAP!
What are your go-to comfort foods (or drinks!) after long/crazy days at work?
