I’ve got food on the brain today, to be more specific we’re talking about grilled cheese and how to improve the standard! I’m sure everyone has their own grilled cheese hacks or tricks but I’m sharing my 5 favorite ones here on the blog.
When a long weekend approaches, my mind automatically switches into food mode. I think of all the wonderful things we might make in the kitchen over the weekend or I think about finding a new restaurant to try. But once the weekend ends and the indulging is over, I try to reset back into healthy mode especially as we head into fall.
Mr. W & I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend at home for the first time in a while and I’ll be the first to admit it was full of food adventures. We blackberry picked, visited a few farmer’s markets, went to our own local fruit stand and even made our first summer dessert crumble that was heavily consumed over said weekend. We also worked in the garden while the sun shined and I realized my basil plant was overrun with fresh basil!
Almost everyone we know is busy. Busy with school, work, kids, family, commuting, sports…the list goes on and a busy week usually includes hectic schedules. While Mr. W and I don’t have a crazy schedule to adhere to, we do find our nights fill up fast with different appointments, dinners and plans. Because of this, I started doing some meal planning for the two of us as it ensures we will have a homemade meal and instantly takes the pressure off when it comes to the big question, “What’s for dinner?”
This trick has literally changed everything! In our house garlic goes in everything I cook and that’s the way I grew up. My mom loves garlic, my whole family loves it and even my boyfriend who didn’t love garlic when we first started dating, requests more of it on a regular basis.
