I’m still sad.
My heart still feels heavy and my emotions are still raw. Less than a week has passed since the loss of our sweet Scooter…I know it’s understandable to feel this way, but that doesn’t make it any easier.
There has been a serious lack of motivation happening around here. I’ve basically been doing only what I have to do, which means anything with a deadline. Otherwise, I find myself staring at the computer.
I’ve tried to cook but end up not finishing the task. Beets were roasted and then transferred to the fridge instead of into the dish I had planned…frozen pizza made an appearance instead. Fish was defrosted and then not used…take out was ordered that night. There was a dinner of microwaved baked potatoes, and even that seemed like a whole lot of work. And last night? Top Ramen. Yes, that Top Ramen. (I will admit that Top Ramen drenched in butter and Sriracha is one of my guilty pleasures. Mmmm.)
Anyway, you get the picture. Not a whole lot of blog-worthy meals going on. So bear with me while I basically mail it in with a link to my grilled cheese sandwich recipes. Because it’s April, and April is Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month. The food world really does make up a lot of holidays, huh?
Grilled cheese sandwiches actually do kind of deserve their own month…there is a whole lot of goodness happening there. And they have always held a special place in my heart because I am instantly reminded of my grandma and my after-school trips to her house. It was always the same: a simple grilled cheese and The Flying Nun on TV…happiness on a plate.
These versions are a bit different from the slice of American on white from my elementary school days, but any grilled cheese is fine by me. Check out my recipes for Spicy Southwestern Bacon, Philly Cheese Steak, and Apple-Fig Grilled Cheese Sandwiches here.
And if you’ve got any extra motivation, send it my way…
