Cheesy Does It!

This is a see-saw week in the Long Legs Household, both emotionally and dinner-wise. I have had a pretty bad case of the mean reds and hubby has been working evenings, so we didn’t plan dinner for this week.  Last night was a quickie meal, cheddar-apple grilled cheese.

Cheddar-Apple Grilled Cheese

(Makes 2 sandwiches)

4 slices of bread, any kind

enough sliced cheese to cover 2 slices of bread

1 granny smith apple, sliced

butter or margarine

1. Butter one side of each slice of bread

2. put cheese on 2 slices of bread, on the non-buttered side

3. put the slices of apple on top of the cheese

4. assemble the sandwiches, butter side out, and place on a hot sandwich press (or a hot frying pan)

(our sandwich press is called the Griddler.  enough said.)

5.  Cook the sandwich until the bread is toasted, and the cheese is melted.

6. Eat!

I’ve got the golden ticket!

Cause I’ve got a golden ticket
I’ve got a golden chance to make my way
And with a golden ticket, it’s a golden day

(Lyrics from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)

Oh my goodness.  I am so excited.  I have been jumping around my house for about 20 minutes now.  Why?  I won a FREE TICKET to the Healthy Living Summit from Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point!!  (Who is my new best blog friend, because she’s so great!)

I will be travelling to Chicago August 13-15 and I will get to meet the wonderful organizers Kath, Tina, Caitlin, Meghann, and Heather, along with so many other wonderful bloggers and members of the healthy living community!!

Winning this ticket has turned around my crappy week, and has really made me happy!

Thanks again Caitlin, I’ll be seeing you in August!!

Did you get a ticket?  I’m excited to see who else is going to be there!
