Bon apetit!



Today was quite something! The beautiful, crispy autumn that I love finally seemed to arrive in earnest, and with it a run and the first of, hopefully many, hikes through the Outing Club I have started just this year at my school!

QUICK CONFESSION before we get into the recipes and magic of these sandwiches:

I have incredibly impatient taste-buds. I rarely can eat a whole meal consisting of one or two things. I find I just get bored. It is an unfortunate fact, however it makes it more fun to cook because then I always end up creating two or three little meals in one!

Anyways, this morning I decided to create two completely different, small, grilled cheese’s: the first is a bit more salty, while the second is sweet, but both are deelicious. Here goes! Continue reading “Belly in Bliss”
