There’s a First Time for Everything

And yesterday was my first time making a grilled cheese sandwich.

Yes, I know, grilled cheese is like THE simplest form of cooking out there, requires almost no skill whatsoever, and is a classic staple in a college student’s diet, but I just never got around around to making one myself.

As a kid, my mom would make grilled cheese sandwiches using Kraft American Cheese singles to have with tomato soup, and that was the extent of my grilled cheese experience… until now.

I’m pretty sure I gave Matt a heart attack when I told him I had never made my own, so after learning the basics (thank you wikiHow) and buying the “appropriate” cheese, I put my skills to the test.
 

First, a stop at Whole Foods…

Perfectly grilled, if I do say so myself.

Notice that string of melted cheese?  YUM!
 

Yes, I’ve now become a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches.  It was simple and SO good!  If you haven’t tried making one or don’t believe me, do it for yourself… RIGHT. NOW.  Winking smile

  

Have you made your own grilled cheese sandwiches before?  What do you like to put in them?

Happy Bunny Day!

Happy Easter (or Bunny Day, or Chocolate Day, or whatever the you want to call it if you don’t celebrate Winking smile) everyone!!!

My Easter is pretty much a normal, busy Sunday for me!  One fabulous thing I managed to fit in today was the first 6-mile walk out to Picnic Point of the year.  I seriously needed that to clear my mind, and I ended up sitting out on the peninsula by the water for a while and it was SO relaxing.  There’s very little wind today, which isn’t typical for Madison, it’s in the mid-50*F’s, and the sun is shining. PERFECT!

   

A few weeks ago I had bought some Millet Bread at the grocery store (FYI, it took me forever to make that arrow in Paint Winking smile).

I finally brought it out a few night ago and tried it out.

Plain = FABULOUS!

With Trader Joe’s Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter = BEYOND AMAZING!

Seriously, this bread is so good!!!  It has almost a buttery taste, and it dense, filling, and spongy in the best ways possible.  Totally worth checking out yourself!

 

This morning I got a lot accomplished in the way of another 10-page essay I’m working on for my Intro to Cultures of Asia class.  The essays are instead of finals/mid-terms, so I really can’t complain!  And it spaces all my studying out by having this class done before finals.  I got about 1/3 of the essay done by lunchtime!
 

When I took my lunch break, I put together a wrap with a Food for Life Brown Rice Tortilla, Tofurky, organic spinach, and organic mixed herb salad.

With sliced organic cucumbers, an activia light, and a glass of unsweetened almond milk.

Right after lunch, I went out for my walk which was fabulous! Smile Now I’m headed out on my balcony to do some studying…

Love it when I can do that OUTSIDE!
