Last evening, my dear possum made grilled cheese for dins:

sourdough bread

fresh mozzarella

olive oil

No S&P, nothing in sandwish but bread, cheese, and olive oil.

I made a tomato saled, served at room temp.

Totally delightful!  

Next time, I will suggest wafer-ish thin slices of prosciutto (or Serrano ham).

But the Solo Fresh Mozzarella Grilled Cheese is to be savored!  New favorite grilled sandwich!

Wow!  Sounds delicious.

My mom used to make soup and grilled cheese for us on the first cold day of the year.  White bread, real butter, Kraft American cheese and Campbell's tomato soup, made with milk.

It was hardly gourmet, but sometimes I still crave it on a cold day.

Would love to try it Eye-talian style...yum mozzarella & ham!

Oh, yeah... grilled cheese (also Kraft American) and Campbell's Tomato Soup w/milk!!!  MY childhood, too!  The BEST memories! Melty, gooey yellow cheese with WonderBread crisped in REAL butter--and dipped in Campbell's!

The only things that even began to compare:

A Fluffernutter

and a Fried Bologna Sandwich (WonderBread, plenty of Hellmann's)!

Do you have Publix up there?  They now make their own brand of FRESH mozzarella--and it is wonderful! Can get in rounds or a one-pound log.  Publix sourdough fresh from the bakery.  But the extra-virgin olive oil must be first and cold-pressed 100 percent Italian!

I've never eaten a fluffernutter sandwich.  Can't stand marshmallows.  

But I'll put peanut butter with nearly anything else imaginable.  Ugh...I even had the "Elvis Special" at a diner in Memphis...a peanut butter and banana sandwich, buttered and cooked on a griddle like a grilled cheese.  I'll never forget it...it felt like I had a brick in my belly.

Haven't had a fried bologna sandwich in quite a while.  I have an aunt who used to make them for us once and a while.  I loved watching the bologna shrink up and make that big bubble in the middle.

Yes, Atlanta has Publix stores...I'll look for their brand of mozzarella.  

And I'm already hooked on sourdough...and olive oil for that matter.  I even buy my butter with olive oil blended into it.   I think Land O Lakes makes it.  It's very tasty, plus it makes real butter more spreadable.

I'll be having pulled pork for lunch tomorrow.  Cooked by my husband on our backyard smoker.  

We're having some friends over to watch college football, and they're bringing side dishes from Jim 'N Nick's Bar B Q.  (If y'all don't have a Jim N Nick's franchise in town, campaign to get one.)  They make all their food FROM SCRATCH!  

They often have fried green tomatoes as a daily special.  And the baked Mac N Cheese is to die for.  (It's the real deal with no cheez whizy type cheese.)  They make the old fashioned kind that is creamy and sticky inside but has a sort of hard, chewy, crusty top.  Oh, and these little cheesy corn muffins...remarkably soft and moist...and even a little sweet.

Anyway, I'm posting in advance because, well...there will also be beer.

quoth robert mitchum (to the strains of copeland"s "fanfare for the common man"):

"beer, it's what's for dinner."

quoth scrutney from his college days:

"beer.
the cornerstone of a nutritious breakfast."

Don't bogart that queso dip, my friend, pass it over to me! Chorizo & jalapeno = BIG YES!!!  Very Happy
********

How many ways can one ruin a Shepher's Pie?

Use ground turkey instead of beef.

Substitute mashed cooked cauliflower for the mashed potatoes.

Use fresh green beans instead of creamed corn.

Any other suggestions?  *urp*  (It's what's for din-dins tonight, Morris!)


******
Update: Will save ersatz shepherd's pie for Sunday.

Tonight will be dining on "Cracker Cow" burgers!  From Allan Roberts' farm.  He has a herd of cattle related to the first Spanish cattle (Andalusian) brough to these shores.

The meat is said to be very lean, as lean as venison. In fact, it is 2.8% fat.  The leanest beef is 5% fat.  The Cracker beef is grass-fed, no steroids.

Will grill onions to top off!
