If you’re like me and you had a long, hard week, you should make this meal. It’s so good, tonight is the second night in a row that I’m eating it for dinner. Ultimate. Comfort. Food.
Once or twice a week, I like to have friends over for dinner and cook for them. Last night, my friend, Andrea, came over for a workout, dinner, and obviously, wine. The workout didn’t happen because Andrea fell ill at work and didn’t have the energy. No problem, that meant I could start drinking earlier. Don’t feel too bad for Andrea that she couldn’t partake in the wine. I drank enough for the two of us. (And she’s not much of a wino anyway – how are we friends?)
After about two hours of non-stop girl talk (mostly me, given that I was the one drinking the wine), we made dinner. She’s on a mostly gluten-free diet so she brought multi-grain gluten-free bread for fruit-filled grilled cheese sandwiches. If you know me at all, you know that I love cheese. And while I don’t eat bread that often anymore, I love it. Wine, bread, cheese, and a good friend. That is a recipe that will heal any sickness. Oh, yeah, we also ate roasted red pepper and tomato soup that I had made earlier in the week. (Delicious, but nothing tops grilled cheese
in my book no matter what.)
Lightly buttered gluten-free bread, blackberries, basil, Monterrey Jack cheese. Grilled to perfection.
Last, but certainly not least.
I’m enjoying my Friday night, and I hope you are, as well.
