Okay... maybe not EVER... but for me - it rocked!!!!

I found this recipe on the Oprah website... her side-kick Gayle had traveled around trying different sandwiches... and this sandwich always stuck out in my mind because it used an ingredient I had never heard of before in a grilled cheese.... honey! I was curious... and a little scared! But also knew it used fresh basil and tomato... and we had some basil and tomatoes from our CSA delivery that needed to be used asap... and I had just bought new honey last night... so why not give it a try?? :)

So glad we did!!!I had a big spinach salad with red onion and strawberries and then some mango, blackberries and cherries on the side... So yummy!

Here is the recipe! Let me know if you try it :)

We did not use all the cheese it asked for... I didn't buy any fontina... and we did not use as much butter but either way - it was GREAT!

After dinner, I did some work (yep... on a Friday night.. and all this weekend!) and JR and Maddie played Candy Land... do you guys remember playing Candy Land when you were kids??? Oh the good ol times :) Maddie beat Daddy's behind all three games, btw! ha ha! Go Maddie! That's my girl! Just kidding honey... Love ya ;)

We have a pretty laid back weekend planned... tomorrow I am taking Maddie to get her hair cut, then coming home and cleaning like a mad woman and doing some more work!

What are your plans this weekend? Doing anything fun? I'm thankful to be able to sit around and veg this time around! I feel like we've been going non-stop for a month now!

Night all :)


  1. Owww with honey? I love it- sounds so good! I see some cleaning in my future too- ick! Hope you have a great weekend

  2. That sandwich sounds amazing! I've never tried honey in a sandwich either... and with cheese and tomatoes? I'm intrigued! I'm definitely going to give it a try sometime soon :D

  3. Awh, these pics bring me back to my childhood. I loved candyland. My poor parents played this game with me 24/7 :)

  4. That looks so tasty! Mmmmm!!

    My weekend is mostly work. I am on deadline so going to be busy, busy!

  5. That sammie looks yum!! To bad I am dairy free. I bet it would be good with goat cheese. Love Candy Land. We have the Dora one and play it with our little one all the time!! She gets mad if we win though. Went on the lake today, just the little one, daddy and I. That was our big plan. Have a great rest of the weekend :)
