Treat Yourself This Weekend
You know who's been on my mind lately? Dave. And you know what Dave appreciates? Well, let's not start a whole THING about that, but among other things, Dave likes him a good grilled-cheese sandwich. And I happen to have made some today that were so good they nearly knocked me unconscious, so I thought I'd share.
First and foremost, you start with a few slices of Beer & Cheese Bread, and you have to make it yourself. But it's not hard. What, you have something else to do? Trust me, it's worth it. I mean, come on--look at this stuff!
We're talking slabs of bread an inch thick--bread that already has American and Swiss cheese IN it. Then you pile up some sharp cheddar, smoked provolone, and mozzarella cheeses, sprinkled with garlic powder. Give each sandwich a 10-20 second warm-up in the microwave just to get the cheese started melting, since the bread is so thick, and finally, of course, grill the sandwiches on each side...in butter.
That's enough to get some happy endorphins going in just about anyone, not to mention anyone's monkey. Precede and follow this meal with meals containing plenty of non-soluble fiber.
