Now that is a fabulous mindset to have, isn't it? Hope ya'll had a fabulous weekend & Monday yesterday to kick off Thanksgiving week. This weekend, I made the most AH-MAZING Grilled Cheese Sandwich and if you're anything like me (and consider yourself a cheese-ologist) then this recipe will be sure to light your tastebuds (or your oven quite literally) on fire. I'm not what you would call a seasoned chef, heck, I'll be honest, I'm not even a decent cook unless you are referring to picking up the phone and ordering delivery (sorry, mom, it is true). Now baking, I can do, but a real meal, not gonna happen without something going terribly wrong.
Craving a delicious grilled cheese, I thoughts surely this recipe would be no problemo to whip up for a quick meal. AND to spice things up (or in the words of Emeril, kick it up a notch) I decided to go rogue and add bacon (the oven-baked, crispy, delicious kind). After pre-heating the oven, I put the bacon in, set the timer, and began to work on the red onions. About 10 minutes later, Boo Radley began frantically sniffing and pacing in the oven/kitchen area-to be honest, I'd go ahead and call it the living room/bedroom/hallway area as well. I really didn't think anything of it until the smoke alarm started blaring over & over getting loud with each repetition. Well, I opened the oven to check things out, & found in the bottom, underneath the sizzling bacon, what used to be one of Boo Radley's squeaky tennis balls, now engulfed in flames. If you're wondering how one of her toys ended up in the oven, your guess is probably better than mine because I have no clue. In an attempt to shut the smoke alarm off, I decided to wave a towel in front of it and in doing so, knocked off the hallway sconce which shattered into a million pieces throughout the front hallway and bathroom. DISASTER. Moral of the story, always check your oven before turning it on, you never know what you might have hidden inside. Would love to know what you think of the grilled cheese... guarantee it will not disappoint...and highly recommend adding bacon.
Happy Thursday, and day before the weekend, ya'll! I had to share with ya'll a few things inspiring me this week. With the cool temperatures and countdown to Thanksgiving (which honestly, I could skip right over and celebrate December for two months if I had it my way!), it has me more excited than ever for my VERY. FAVORITE. MONTH. EVER. This is not an understatement, with all of the most fabulous things happening in December: Boo Radley's birthday, MY birthday, Christmas, New Year's & the holiday spirit in general.. what's not to love about the most fabulous month all year long? Wouldn't you agree? Working on several fabulous gift guides, and not to mention a VERY exciting blog design update, with a new logo and all, can't wait to share these with you in the coming weeks!
